Entertaiment is amusement that involves a performance. It can be anything from a clown at a birthday party to a Broadway show to stadium rock, but is usually something that is meant to distract, amuse or thrill. It often hits on themes that the human mind was shaped to deeply react to, like backstabbing and murder. It also has the ability to cross different media and have a almost unlimited amount of creative remixes.
