Watch live and in living color as a famous celebrity does sketch comedy on the fly during a taping of SNL, which has been a television mainstay for over 40 years.
Getting Day-of Tickets
On select dates, when the show is in season (October – May), you can try to snag a FREE ticket when stand-by tickets are distributed at 7am on the morning of a show.
The standby line begins on the 48th street side of 30 Rock. Based on availability, you can choose between a ticket to the show’s dress rehearsal at 8pm (arrive before 7:15pm); or the live show at 11:30pm (arrive before 10:45pm).
All stand-by line members must remain in line at all times. Stand-by tickets are limited to 1 per person and are first-come, first-served. You must be age 16+ to attend. Be prepared to show a valid photo ID (a) when the ticket is issued and (b) at the return time.
