Louis CK

If you were thinking of still heading over to The Bell House to try and get tickets to one of tonight's three surprise Louis CK shows, bad news from the venue's Twitter feed: "WE ARE 100% SOLD OUT FOR ALL 3 SHOWS. Thank you and we're really really sorry to those of you who didn't get in :("

Still, tickets lasted 2 1/2 hours. Did you get a pair?

Capacity @ Bell House = 400

Sold to public = 320

Each show = 320/2 = 160 pairs

3 shows = 480 hipsters with no jobs

Go figure!

308pm hipsters are those people you see walking in williamsburg with dumbass tight pants and shirt they brought from ohio.

oh and kids who think hummus is great cause they never ate real food before.

hummus is not great at all.

I am a cubicle monkey. I just decided on a slow late August Monday to take a nice long lunch and jumped a cab to the club. Got a pair of ticket no problem. There were stacks.

I mean they announced the show during people's lunch break. Knowing some people would drop everything and come in I think that was reasonably fair. I prefer it to "no advanced tickets line up at the door" personally.

It is in really bad etiquette to speak badly of hummus on BV.
These comment boards are the primary source of communication of the Hummus Underground, and we hold the chickpea to be a sacred legume...
So please use better judgement when speaking about that wondrous tan paste we all love.

Posted by Anonymous | August 27, 2012 3:19 PM

It'll be the exact (read: EXACT) same material at each show. If you bought tickets to more than one show, you should consider selling tickets to one of the shows to someone in need.

a hipster is a young 20 something imbecile from elsewhere (not NYC) who immediately moves to Williamsburg as soon as he/she is able using their parents money, so they can pretend to be hip (which they are not) and pretend to be an 'artist' (which they are not).

They wear ridiculous neon colored sunglasses that they think makes them look 'punk/new wave/cool' (which don;t look any of those things) and ironic t shirts that they think show how smart/funny they are (which they aren't).

They like whatever is the most up to the minute current crap band that the internet tells them to like.

They have no mind of their own and no money of their own.

Posted by Anonymous | August 27, 2012 3:29 PM

In the larger sense, a hipster usually refers to someone who fits the following characteristics:

-wears a lot of 'fashiony' clothes that look cheap and worn but are really hundreds/thousands of dollars (see rag & bone, band of outsiders, etc.)
-has a moustache that is serial killer cool, not action movie star cool
-has a trust fund
-works 'full-time' as an intern at a boutique/pr firm/magazine or in a customer service position at a clothing store in soho
-if female, writes for refinery29
-listens to everything on this website while simultaneously bashing it with all his/her cybermight.
-ironic tattoos
-obvious lack of life goals
-is attempting to write a screenplay
-doesn't go to starbucks
-if they go to grad school, it'll be for something extremely impractical, like an MA in comparative literature

@329 you'll get some bs warm up act who will go on for 15-30 minutes, every comic needs it. maybe you'll get lucky and get some brooklyn comedy hanger-on like reggie watts or todd barry, or maybe you'll get a nobody. either way, who cares honestly.

love his show, but i gotta say, when i saw him at beacon, he was so BORING...too much material on his ex-wife and kids. blah blah blah.

Posted by Anonymous | August 27, 2012 3:38 PM

3:28...believe whatever you want but no, I honestly don't read the comments section. I recently started watching Louis C.K.'s show and was a fan of his HBO show. As a teacher, I have off for the summer and was curious about ticket availability so I checked out the comments.

Thank you for the definitions, 3:29 and 3:31.
I went to a concert in Williamsburg Friday night and it was my first time in Williamsburg and believe I definitely saw some hipsters but didn't talk to any.

What a bummer to blame the unemployed on how the Bell House ran their ticket sales today. I've read a few tweets and comments from people saying stuff like: "Sucks you wouldn't let me have tickets. Sorry if I'm responsible and employed." and "Why are you pandering to the unemployed? Get these tickets online!" Actually, it seems like comments like these pop up whenever there's a mid-day paper ticket sales. I know I've seen it with other Bell House events.

One of the only good things, if not *the* only good thing, about not having work is being able to partake in opportunities like these when they come around, which is very rare in the first place. Other than that, being unemployed sucks. I wish people would be more sensitive.

Posted by Anonymous | August 27, 2012 3:52 PM

being employed isn't an excuse; i hate when the employed complain in situations like this about not being able to get tickets.

just post a 'labor' ad on craigslist saying you'll pay someone $20 plus cab fare to trek to brooklyn for a pair of tickets and you'll have tens to hundreds of unemployed brooklyn kids lining up to do it for you within minutes. it's so common sense. i've done this several times.

being securely employed is still the smart decision, since it allows you to pay little kids minimum wage to run around the city and get tickets to exclusive events for you, while you sit in a temperature-controlled office and make a decent money.

lol Caleb Dawson, what a schmeeb.

if you can't figure out how to get these tickets while being stuck at your office, you not only don't deserve these tickets; you don't deserve to be employed. extreme lack of creativity and ingenuity when the situation demands it. i'm assuming you get paid at this position you are currently holding? use some of that fucking money to pay some unemployeed person who is schmeebier than you (if even possible, Caleb Dawson) and get them to get your precious tickets. It'll cost you an extra $20 tops.

No, I'm not an English teacher but why does that matter? I don't even know what "vikes" are. Like I said, I don't frequent these comment pages so maybe I'm a little out of my element here. Was just looking for info on Louie tickets and curious about what a "hipster" is.

Prof, you've lost your narrative now. You supposedly like Louis CK but you think that joking about vicodin is 'dumb'. When you try to get in character you need to think like the character. Screenwriting 101.

I'm 38 so I supposed I am older? I at least feel older with most of the comments I've been reading. No, I didn't know what "vikes" were right away and I don't know what LULZ means or what refinery29 is either. Still not sure exactly what a hipster is too. I'm sure it's a term that will eventually fade into obscurity and eventually some some new term will soon come into play that people will call each other.

What I do know is that my friend was able to get tickets. Good luck to the rest of you. As for the "vikes" guy...sorry you have to live with yourself.

I have a job. I got tickets. I got in a cab from Manhattan on my lunch hour and went to the Bell House. And then I immediately got back in a cab. How? Because TONS of other people jumped in a cab on their lunch hour and bought tickets, and I got in as someone else was getting out.

This is not rocket surgery.

Posted by Anonymous | August 27, 2012 5:27 PM

@515 refinery29 is a fashion blog. 'hipster' is a term that will probably be around indefinitely to define what it defines; in the same way that the word 'hippies' still accurately defines hippies.

the word won't go away, but the 'coolness' of the 'fad' will; i.e. they'll find something else to cling on to, and in a decade anyone who is still a hipster will be laughed at. because DISCO WILL BE BACK.

Hi 12:18. Just like the other 'professor', I believe you in that you are a teacher without access to the internet so that you cannot google 'hipster' even though you are posting on an internet thread. UTZ rules, but for regional potato chip weirdness, try Wachusett next time you're in New England.

As a high ranking member of the Hummus Underground, I feel it is my duty to inform you of one of the rules we adhere too.

First of all, hummus, and all hummus related items (pita triangles, baby carrots, tahini sauce, etc) are never to be spoken of in a negative manner. Even if it is spoiled or stale one does not make derogatory comments about the tan colored substance.
It's best to simply dispose of it with a somber demeanor, or better yet utilize it as a wood glue substitute as to not simply waste such a useful and wondrous food substance.

Posted by Anonymous | August 28, 2012 1:48 PM

The 9:00 pm show was great. Todd Barry had a very funny opening 10 minutes. Louis CK took the stage shortly afterwards and did his thing for well over an hour. He discussed a lot of funny topics.

Memorable bits included:

If murder was legal;
Decency chicken;
Acceptance of his weight;
Dating;

and the best was the bit discussing various topics like Racism, Troops, Make a Wish Foundation etc., reminding the audience that "of course" you could never make fun of these things, "but maybe..."
