    I'm going to be in NYC this Saturday and I was wondering if anyone knew how hard it is to get tickets to SNL. I went to nbc.com and this is what it says:

    We are no longer taking ticket requests for the 2003-2004 season. Check back next summer for information about the 2004-2005 ticket lottery.

    For stand-by tickets: Arrive no later than 7:00am on the morning of the taping under the "NBC Studios" marquee on the 50th St. side of 30 Rockefeller Plaza. You may choose a stand-by ticket for either the 8:00pm dress rehearsal or the 11:30pm live show. Only one ticket will be issued per person. Please note that a stand-by ticket does not guarantee admission.



    Is it possible to get tickets if I wake up really early or would I just be wasting my time?

    You can also try to get tickets for the rehearsal before the show. They say that is pretty cool too. They try out the skits one last time before they go live and throw away the bad ones.

    Forget SNL. Getting tickets is impossible. You stand a much better chance of going to see The Daily Show (which I've done several times). Call (212)-586-2477. I don't know if they can accommodate you on such short notice, but you can try. Be forewarned, though: Just because you have a ticket doesn't mean you'll get in. It's "first come, first serve." Get there early and stand in line (usually with a bunch of hippy, stoned NYU students). I believe the show tapes around 5:30 PM and lasts for an hour.

    Trust me, The Daily Show is well worth it. Jon Stewart is even funnier in person. He answers questions (and harasses tourists), shoots the s*** with the audience, and sometimes does a little standup schtick for the crowd.

    I don't think they're taping anymore until the summer. I could be wrong but I know this weekend was a repeat.

    It's hard to keep up these days. Seems like every time I'm home on Saturday night, it's a repeat. I always miss the live shows. :mad:

    PIKE? Ugh. Forgot what I said. I'm never helping you guys again. :p

    Try calling and see what happens. It never hurts to try, right?
