What Is Entertaiment?

Entertaiment means an activity or event that holds the interest and attention of an audience or gives pleasure and delight. It can be an idea or a task but is more likely to be one of the activities that have developed over thousands of years specifically for the purpose of keeping people’s attention. Entertaiment often hits on themes that the brain was evolved to deeply react to, such as social backstabbing and murders.
