Entertaiment is a form of enjoyment that ranges from an individual’s personal entertainment choice to performances intended for an audience, from an event tailored for two to one that may be experienced by thousands. While it is commonly associated with fun and humor, entertaintment can also be serious – as in the case of a ceremony, celebration or religious festival. Entertainment hits the points that the brain was evolved to react deeply to, like social backstabbing, murders and other themes the human brain was shaped to understand and interact with.
