Define Athest enterteinment. The closest thing I have seen is skeptic entertainment. there's Penn and Teller's B.S. show. A lot of Steve Martin's
movies have skeptic stuff in them. My Blue Heaven and the one about the evangelist and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels all show how con artists operate. The Jerk exposes carnival games and fake charities (Kitten Juggling!) Bowfinger may be based on a popular New Age religion. Mythbusters is somewhat skeptic in that sometimes they disprove myths. And once a science channel had a series of shows here they acted like they were going to talk about Bigfoots and Aliens and stuff and then they showed the real explanations. So, that's just about all the Atheist entertainment I can think of. Carlin made a few Atheist jokes right before launching into his fart jokes.
Have you ever seen religious signs nailed to a farm fence on the road side? My idea of atheist entertainment would be to go to a roadside farm and nail up a bunch of roadside signs that say, "Jesus thinks you are a
jerk!" Tee-hee!

Most entertainments are pretty much secular these days, especially in this country. Once in a while you have someone like Mel Gibson who comes along and makes some garbage.

In a way I'm thankful there is no specifically atheist entertainment. Imagine if you live in a Muslim country and all the entertainment are about God. (This is NOT I think the case there either.)

Try Dark City, In the Mouth of Maddness, The last temptation of Christ (Twilight Zone meets the Jesus Christ story. What if Jesus Christ was just a prophet of some deity but he thought that he was the son of a diety? The ending has a great twist that turns the movie into a psychological thriller). I kept on expecting Rod Sterriling to appear next to Jesus Christ when he's on the Cross in the movie.), the 13th floor, Blade Runner, Altered States, A Clockwork Orange, 1984, A Brave New World and the story of Animal Farm and every twilight zone episode ever made( The Rod Sterling episodes.).
