"The primary is to excite the spectators. If meaning playing Hamlet on a flying trapeze or in a aquarium, you do it."- Orson Welles
Humans have always craved entertainment, all forms of it. The Greeks indulged in stage plays. For them it was a way of catharsis, purgation release a all of the pent up emotions and frustration. Nevertheless, entertainment purifies our mind and soul and relaxes us. Picture this. After a tiring trip to work, we turn to music, films, TV shows etc. to refresh us and give us the essential peace of mind. It's how our body works and functions. For a while we must forget everything and lose ourselves into something that's not our personal life. Oahu is the high we crave and eventually we're back once again to being us. Generally, this high makes sure our sanity is intact and that people are rejuvenated before facing another trying day. Indian comedian
