Information for Attending a Big Bang Theory Taping

Recommended Posts

I have found in my past 4 months of trying to get tickets, that the ticket swarm starts around 11:20 EST. I don't typically see the tickets become available until 11:34-1137.   I typically see other shows being added before and when I see that occur, I know I need to make sure im 100 percent on my a game. 

Use different browsers, on different computers, at different IP addresses... That's how I got mine.  I was at work, she was at home. we used a combination of Firefox, IE, and Safari.  I also set my browsers to check for new pages on every visit so it wouldn't cache anything.

we scored our tickets using Firefox at home, and IE at work. 

Good luck.

for sure it is and it is not going to get easier!

 

btw, user RJ1013 offered some help on the previous page and he obviously knows what he's talking about,  I'd use it if I were struggling to get tickets.

Is there video anywhere of the filming of the show from an audience perspective. I've always wondered what it would be like to see this or other sitcoms  being made (but live in Australia) and how it all unfolds for the live audience.

There's a behind the scenes video about the taping process somewhere. You gotta google for it - Idk if it was from a show or a DVD feature or whatever.

Thanks April. Not sure if this was the one you were thinking of, but it was fantastic none the less.

Hi Everyone! Rarely have time to sign in and post, but still lurk all the time!

Are there still folks here that still help others secure tickets on release days? I've been to a taping back in season 8, and didn't think I'd ever get to another one. Hubby surprised me for my birthday this week in that he's trying to plan a trip to California in April (we're from Canada), so we could possibly see the April 23rd taping. It looks to be the second-to-last taping so I'm sure it's going to be even more impossible to get tickets... especially guaranteed ones. 
Are tickets still released at set times/days? Any tips for the best way to secure them? We're hoping to be able to confirm plans in the next week or two (friends would be travelling with us, and would babysit our toddler while we attend the taping), so trying not to get my hopes up!

Thanks vonmar - that was awesome. Answered many questions i had about what goes on. Plus how funny was the interview with the audience member from Canada.

How is it that in one second all the tickets are gone? And I've used two different browsers on my computer and two different phones..

Mine did that frequently. Only browser that worked for me out of all was Firefox on my iPhone. I got sold out messages on three others. I was lucky enough to secure tickets for next Tuesday’s taping. Good luck, don’t give up

Is that April 2 taping particularly popular for any reason e.g. a special guest star, or is it just that there are only a couple more to go that's making the server crash as people realize its now or never? Two of us managed to get standby tickets for that taping, I am over from the UK and we can take a trip to LA and get there very early, but I'm just wondering what our chances will be.

@FugsytheSquirrel,

I assume that the servers crashing is due to the volume of people looking to get tickets in these final weeks. Only 90 regular tickets went up on Monday, so that probably means lots of VIPs. That doesn’t necessarily mean there will be any kind of special guest stars, though.

There’s no way to know from week to week how many standbys will get in. You might want to try for a regular ticket another week before you finalize travel plans and gamble on the standbys.

90, same as last week

Must be a lot of VIPs for the final tapings. I personally wouldn't even attempt it with a standby ticket.

 

I have a regular ticket for tomorrow and still going somewhat early just in case

Hi. Is there any possibility to exchange tickets? I got two standard tickets for 04/02 taping and two for 04/09 taping. But the best taping day for me to attend is on 03/19, for which I only got two standby tickets, or I will have to fly to LA again and miss several classes. So can I exchange my tickets with someone own two standard tickets for 03/19 taping? Did that ever happened?

That would be a question for audiences unlimited but everything I've read says not transferrable and it says on the ticket print out as well not transferrable.

No, tickets are printed with an individuals  name, and can only be used by that individual.  IDs are checked and matched with tickets.

Thanks for all the info sharing everyone. I tried again to get regular tickets and failed miserably and would appreciate it if anyone going tomorrow could get an idea of how many standbys (if any) get in. TIA.
