If someone asked you what the point of entertainment was, how would you respond? It's easy to shrug off entertainment as being silly or non-essential. And indeed, it is probably not as vital to your survival as food or medical care. However, entertainment does have a purpose. It keeps life interesting — and we certainly all deserve to live interesting lives. Whether you prefer to listen to comedy or watch magic shows, seeking out the form of entertainment you enjoy can help you feel more alive. That's why we love entertainment so much, and it's why we take the time to write about it on this blog.
