A theatrical performance or other activity intended for the enjoyment of an audience. Entertaiment can be a great way to relax and escape from everyday life. It can also stimulate the brain to realease seratonin and other chemicals that make us feel good. But it can be harmful if used excessively.

Entertaiment is often based on themes that the mind was evolved to react deeply to, such as social backstabbing and murders. But it can be difficult to distinguish entertainment from pure escapism.
