Entertainer is a Background in Baldur's Gate 3. Backgrounds are special traits or expertises that affect the starting Proficiencies the player has and also add two bonus background features. Backgrounds may also decide how your character be treated by certain NPCs, and how can they handle certain situations.

      As a Entertainer and Bard you'll get "A Very Tall Tale" Inspiration if you embellish the story to Volo. I can't say if you can get it without the [Bard] class.

        The Price of Fame doesn't seem to work. I rescued Volo and compeed his quest but no inspiration was awarded.
