Saturday Night Live
Tickets to Saturday Night Live are available by lottery only, during the month of August only, for the September-June season. To enter, send an email to [email protected] during the month of August only (in advance of the upcoming season). Include all contact information, but do not request a specific date.
One email per household is allowed. Winners receive two tickets for a specific show date and performance (dress rehearsal or live show).
- Send an email to [email protected] and hope for the best.
Standby and rehearsal tickets: You’ll likely have better luck getting a standby or rehearsal ticket. You can choose between the 8pm dress rehearsal and the 11:30pm live taping, though you’re not guaranteed admission. These are distributed the morning of the show at 7:30am on the 49th st. side of 30 Rockefeller Plaza.
- As with standby tickets for Jimmy Fallon, the line typically forms well before 7:30am, it is one ticket per person, and if you leave the line for any reason you will not be permitted back into the place you left, even if a companion remains in place.
Schedule: On Saturdays, arrive no later than 7:15pm for the 8pm dress rehearsal and 10:45pm for the 11:30pm live show.
Tapings at NBC Studios at 30 Rockefeller Plaza.
Note that there is no information about tickets on the Saturday Night Live website.
