What is Entertaiment?


Entertaiment is anything that amuses and distracts, or stimulates emotions. It can include everything from the clown at your child’s birthday party, to a Broadway show, stadium rock concert, or your friends fighting over the last potato chip. The word is derived from the French verb entretenir, meaning to support and maintain. It was once associated with hospitality. Entertainment often hits on points that our brains were evolved to deeply react to – such as murders, backstabbing and other themes.
