What Is Entertaiment?

Entertaiment is about having fun, being happy and expressing emotions. It often hits on themes that the human brain was shaped to deeply react to, such as social backstabbing and murder. Entertainment can be at one moment low-brow and the next high brow, but it is always about eliciting an emotional response from the audience. Entertainment can be as simple as choosing a movie from a now enormous selection; as elaborate as a dinner for two or a banquet for thousands; and as specialized as ceremonies, religious festivals or satire.
