Information For Attending A Big Bang Theory Taping

Recommended Posts

Is there a dress code for attending a taping?  I have tickets but have no idea if casual jeans and a sweater is acceptable attire.

I have been to two tapings. You will be totally fine!  People dress very casually. The audience is not shown on camera, so no dress code. But it is chilly in the studio so that sweater is a good idea. Most of all, have a great time. It is really fun!

Never been to a taping, but from what people around here has told us during the years I don't think there's a dress code, some fans even wear TBBT related T-shirts or cosplay as one the characters, so your planned outfit seems more than ok to me.

Thanks! You make a good point about tees. Appreciate the response!

Perfect! Thank you!  It'll be warm for the wait outside so I may just do a tee and jeans and bring a big comfy cardigan. But it's super helpful to know casual is standard. We're flying out just for the day and would hate to not be able to get in because we were ill prepared on something as simple as attire.

Yes, it can be cold inside the sound-stage. Kaley covered up with a big blanket in between takes, during the last taping that I was at. Safe travels and have a great time! :)

Did you go to the taping last night?  If so, did you enjoy the show?  It’s such a fun experience, I’m going to try for tickets again after the holidays.  If you were there last night, any spoilers you care to share about the episode?   

The main thing is to have a great time (even though the pizza was cold at both of the tapings I attended!!!). ♥️

I've been to 4 tapings and agree it's a fun experience. The pizza has always been cold when I've gone too, but it's nice that they feed the audience.

Please post spoilers in the spoiler threads rather than here on the tickets info page. Some of us are spoiler free ?

We did. It was fun and all the advice I got from here was super helpful in knowing what to expect.  We didn't get there quite as early as I originally intended but I needed a nap. We got there at 3 for a 6 start (90 minutes before the arrival cuttoff) and were 63 & 64 in line (of the confirmed tickets). We were the far left of center because they used us to fill a gap at the end of a row. We were in front of Penny's apartment where several scenes were shot (I don't consider that a spoiler -if anyone does, I apologize) and the stairwell. 

Pizza was cold but we'd brought Chipotle to eat shortly before heading inside. They do let you take in beverages as long as they have a spill proof lid.  Water bottles and sodas in plastic bottles from the vending machines, for example.  I specifically asked before doing it. 

Great experience. We flew out specifically to attend and probably won't do that again. But if we're planning a trip and will be in the area i'd go again.

I don't consider that a spoiler. Sounds like a good time, even if a short vacation. Do you know how many, if any, standby ticket holders got in?

Glad you had fun!

And if you remember some things we would be thrilled to read them in the Season 11 Discussion Thread where we discuss spoilers.

Well this is it.  The tickets are going up sometime this weekend or maybe Monday morning from everything that I've read.  I'll be refreshing my computer all weekend long  apparently in hopes of getting tickets for my wife's 50th.  Wish me luck.  I'm probably going to need it :)

Well the bad news is, is that the tickets never came out all weekend.  The good news is, is that I'm pretty sure I broke some sort of refresh webpage record :) Today has to be the day I guess right?  Shoot I'm wasting time, need to get back to refreshing  :)

Got the tickets!!!  Thank you to everyone who helped me out on this forum.  There was another individual also helping me watch on this forum and I want to especially thank them as well.  My wife is going to be absolutely thrilled for her 50th.  I'll take pictures and come back and let everyone know how it went when we get back from LA.

Great news! I hope you guys will have a blast!

I got tickets for all 3 of us as well! It seemed like a smooth enough process. I didn’t have any time out errors; they all went through right away. Hopefully the rest of the process is just as smooth! See you there!

Thanks for all the comments.  Yeah, I'm pretty pumped.  After ten and a half years, my first taping.
