entertaining v. joyful v. funny

Are "joyful" and "funny" good substitutes for "entertaining" being used as an adjective in this sentence?

"The New York Sun, for example, only cost one cent. it focused on entertaining stories about both famous and ordinary people."

    No, they don't work in that sentence. An entertaining story isn't necessarily funny (though it may be), and "joyful" is just wrong. You might like to review the definitions of the three words.
