Two new TV shows will be cracking us up this fall: The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, which premiered this week, and The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, which begins September 28. (Oh, perhaps you’ve heard of them?) If you’re lucky enough to live in New York City--or within visiting distance--now’s your chance to snag free tickets to a taping.
Step 1: Check out the ticket calendar for The Late Show or The Daily Show on ShowClix.com. If the date you want to go is sold out, keep checking back. Additional tickets may be released, and new show dates will be added.
Step 2: Arrive on time--seriously, chronically late friends. Check-in begins at 2:30 p.m. for The Daily Show and 3:15 p.m. for The Late Show. Fair warning that all shows are overbooked to ensure a full audience, so you could lose your spot if you make that pit stop for cold brew.
Step 3: Enjoy the show, because it’ll be your last time seeing it live for a while. Audience members are permitted to see The Late Show only once every six months and The Daily Show once every three.
Step 4: Tell your mom you’re going to be on TV.
