Getting Up Guide: Louis C.K. and zombies

By Alex Baldinger

What are your plans tonight? The Getting Up Guide is here to help you answer that question. Here's what's happening Friday:

Zombie Defense!
While we're not saying a zombie apocalypse is likely to happen, what if, theoretically, it did? Would you know how to defend yourself? Your family? Get all the need-to-know details on taking down aggressive zombies -- evasion techniques, dealing with multiple attackers, that sort of thing -- at a 90-minute self-defense class that will prepare you for the next "Shaun of the Dead." Zombie costumes are encouraged for, you know, realism.

Harvest Celebration wine tasting
Part of the Kennedy Center Roof Terrace restaurant's new monthly themed receptions, this wine-tasting features selections of biodynamic and organic wines from France's Alsace region; Germany's Mosel, Pfalz and Rheingau regions; and Austria's Burgenland, accompanied by live music and regionally-inspired food from 6 to 8 p.m.

Louis C.K.
To a stand-up comedian, making an audience uncomfortable is just as important as making people laugh: If they aren't uncomfortable, it means they aren't being forced to confront any of the truths that comedy routinely reveals. This is where Louis C.K. excels as a comedian, as viewers of his FX series, "Louie," can attest: You're as likely to hear material about parenting, marriage and mortality as you are profanity-laced tirades about the scourge that is the deer population, and it's all hilarious. The first of tonight's two shows at the Warner Theatre is sold out, but if you're lucky, you can grab one of the few remaining seats for the 10 p.m. Both shows are now sold out.
