Entertainment is a form of activity that holds the attention and interest of an audience or gives pleasure and delight. It can be an idea or a task, but is more likely to be one of the activities or events that have developed over thousands of years specifically for the purpose of keeping an audience’s attention.

All art is political, Jonson. (From the movie Anonymous 2011)

I enjoyed your little comedy, Jonson. You have great potential. Thank you, my lord. But its politics did have quite an effect on the Tower. My father-in-law’s men felt it quite seditious. Politics. My play has nothing to do with politics. It’s just a simple  comedy. That showed your betters as fools who would barely get food from plate to mouth without the cleverness of their servants. All art is political, Jonson. Otherwise, it would just be decoration. And all artists have something to say. Otherwise, they’d make shoes. And you are not a cobbler, are you, Jonson?
Francesco? A play, my lord. One you shall stage Bankside. Stage? Under your name. My name, my lord? I can’t very well use my name, can I? I’m the 17th Earl of Oxford. The Lord Great Chamberlain of England, Viscount Bolebec, Lord of Escales, Sanford and Badlesmere, etc. No. I have a reputation to protect. In my world, one does not write plays, Jonson. People like you do.
