Getting Saturday Night Live Tickets in Advance:
Every August, you can submit your request for Saturday Night Live Tickets via email. Those who are selected for tickets will receive an email confirmation and two tickets to either a live taping or a dress rehearsal.
Getting Standby Saturday Night Live Tickets:
For stand-by tickets, arrive by 7 a.m. on the morning of the taping under the "NBC Studios" marquee on the 50th St. side of 30 Rockefeller Plaza. Standby tickets are available for either the 8 pm dress rehearsal or the 11:30 pm live show. Only one ticket will be issued per person. Please note that a stand-by ticket does not guarantee admission.
What to Know About Saturday Night Live Tickets:
- You must be at least 16 to attend the Saturday Night Live show
- Check the Saturday Night Live website to be sure they're airing a new episode on a given date before you plan to wait for stand-by tickets.
- Bring a sweater or jacket if you're attending a taping -- they keep the studios pumped full of refrigerated air.
- Be aware that the weather and the guest host play a big role in the competitiveness for getting standby tickets.
