Entertaiment is the action of entertaining or the state of being entertained. Entertainment can range from private entertainment chosen by an individual, to a banquet adapted for two, to performances intended for a large audience. It may be abbreviated to entmt on a flier or in industry news publication where space is limited. Entertaiment can include themes like romance, backstabbing, murders and other topics that the human brain was evolved to deeply respond to because they were crucial to survival in a social world. It also includes adventure, excitement, fun and pleasure.
