What Is Entertaining?
Entertainers are people who make others laugh, make them cry or make them smile. Entertainers can be stand up comics, musicians, actors or singers but the most famous entertainers are those who can make you stop and just sit and take notice. Entertaining is not so much an art as it is an art form. Entertainment is an art form that holds an audience’s interest and also gives pleasure and excitement. It can be a project or an idea, but most often is most often one of those things or activities which have evolved over thousands of years especially for the express purpose of Keeping an entertained audience’s interest.
Entertainers are usually hired by a theatre company, a movie studio, a production company or by a musician. They are generally required to do light stage shows or acts that are intended to amuse an audience in some way. But there is a difference between the entertainment provided by an Entertainer and the mass media entertainment industry that are commonly referred to as entertainment. An Entertainer is generally a person who knows how to use their voice or how to sing well enough to keep an audience listening, a comedian is usually hired to create comic material that are light-hearted and fun and a musical artist is generally required to play a musical instrument or sing.
Entertainers are often required to perform at small theatres, science fiction conventions, poetry slams, charity shows, comedy festivals, open mic nights, rock concerts and other small gatherings. They are also required to travel to remote locations where large halls and auditoriums cannot be found. There is a certain mystique and excitement about Entertainers that lends itself to the task of attracting an audience and keeping them. Some Entertainers choose to work on their own, some work for agencies, some perform side shows at small events and some even hold part-time jobs as a doorman or take paid surveys on television. There are even Entertainers who get paid for being at a rock concert.
Entertainers are not just limited to singing, dancing and acting; they can also be involved in more technical aspects of entertainment. Some Entertainers like to work behind the scenes and assist in the production of videos, audio tracks and photos used in videos. There are also Entertainers who go from one industry to another working in similar but different fields such as one who goes into retail or advertising. The most common of these is the TV Show Entertainer, the TV Show Extras, the Stand Up Comedian and other popular entertainment TV Shows such as Top Gear.
There is a growing demand for Entertainers and the TV Show Business is no exception. There are many TV Shows and Movies now where the main character is an Entertainer.

However there is a difference between Entertainers and actors in that Entertainers are not permitted to talk freely on camera, although it is not always their fault because the producers and directors of the shows often pay them to keep quiet.
Entertaining is not only limited to stage performances and films, but can also take place in any number of different settings. It has been estimated that there are hundreds of entertainers performing arts all over the world every day, making the entertainment industry worth billions of dollars.
