I'm pretty sure the imperial army played cards in the horus heresy series.

I can read your mind. Right now you think I'm lying.

In the Ravenor Rogue series one planet had a huge arena with Gladiatorial games -Mostly fought to a fairly bloody death. Some of the battles I recall were mutants dressed as clowns fighting a T-Rex equivalent and typical Roman-esque Gladiatorial fights/ beast brawls. Intermisions had scantily-clad acrobats and whatever singers were most popular at the time.

And remember- Good ol' Angron was "rescued" from a supposedly-advanced planet where cybernetically-enhanced bloodsports were the most popular entertainment...

I wonder if famous entertainers are poular exclusively within their home planets or are renowned throughout the system or even galaxy. Among trillions of human it's probably impossible to find an artist, actor, dancer, or singer who stands out significantly among the rest, and with warp travel being as dangerous as it is I can't see them visiting multiple audiences.
