One of the perks of being in NYC is they film so many shows here, and they are always looking for people to be studio audience members. I make a point to attend at least 1 taping a year. It’s FREE so why not take advantage of these awesome shows. Whether you’re a native New Yorker or planning a trip add this to your list of things to do.
But how do you attend a taping? It’s easy and I’ve pulled together a large list of all the ones I know about in NYC. Just click the link and you’ll be directed to apply for tickets.
Saturday Night Live – These tickets are the hardest, and most coveted to win. They do their tickets in a lottery and you can only enter in the month of August. So enter today and if you win let me know!! Update from SNL: Now, in order to enter the SNL ticket lottery for the 2017 – 2018 season you must send an email to [email protected] with your full name, email address, and a few sentences explaining why you want to be a part of our studio audience. Any emails that do not contain all information above will be disqualified.
The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon – I’m keeping my eyes open on this because I want to see him. Right now he’s sold out for August, but I’m sure they’ll have the fall up soon so keep checking back.
Rachael Ray Show – This is the one I usually do every year. I’m partial since I was a guest on the show before, but really enjoy her and how she interacts with her studio audience.
The View – This one is live so make sure you set your DVRs before attending
Live with Kelly – I’ve done this one a few times and it’s a fun time. They really interact with the audience on commercial breaks and since it’s live you’re out pretty quickly.
Dr. Oz Show – Make an appointment today.
The Wendy Williams Show – I’ve never attend a taping for her, but I think she would be so fun!
The Daily Show with Trevor Noah – There’s always something good with this show, especially in an election year.
Everyone has different rules and ways to get tickets so please make sure you read them before applying. Being in the studio audience is an important job and super fun. So click a link and try for some tickets it could be a great adventure in the city!
