Entertainment Is A Craft

I discern entertainment as a craft instead of an art because it has a goal. If we forget that it has a goal, or we ignore the responsibility to the audience we don’t do what we’re supposed to. We’re supposed to entertain. We sign up for it and we come through as heros with as much consistency as possible. That means refining the product, but also being as agile as we need to be to adjust to incoming situations.

Performance is an art. It’s okay to be a performer who does it for ourselves or to express the inexpressible, but entertainment is not about being subjective. It’s about capturing the audience and giving them a rewarding experience.
