  • Episode Description
  • Buy The Book doesn’t make the top 20 list in "The Hollywood Reader" for Hippest Hangouts. Ellen sets out to make Buy The Book hipper. She decides live music would be good, so she auditions people. Ellen is stuck with The Shapiros, a bad act. But everyone seems to love them. Suddenly, the bookstore is very hip. But soon, Ellen realizes the crowd is laughing at the Shapiros, not with them. Ellen feels bad, so she informs them of this. Del and Rochelle Shapiro get into a big argument, and Del is forced to do the act himself. So, in attempt to help, Ellen does the act with him. But then she tells the crowd you shouldn’t laugh at people, so the crowd leaves. But the Shapiro’s get a bigger gig touring with Courtney Love.moreless

    • Having Charlie Brill and Mitzi McCall play the anti-hip Shapiros in this episode is an allusion to the fact that Brill and McCall were the act that followed the first live performance of The Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show - an anti-climatic slot for anyone to get.
