However, in this article I will try to prep you for a visit to a talk show taping, providing you with dos and donts, so that you’re left with the right expectations, leaving the wrong perceptions at home.
I truly hope you will get some valuable information from these tips. And having been to quite a few live shows myself, from Judge Jude in Los Angeles to Carson Daly in New York (when he was still in the Big Apple; now his show tapes in Burbank, CA), I’d like to believe that I have sort of the right credibility to talk about it. Kick back and have fun with it!
(Be prepared to become part of the show taping as it happened when the talk show hostess Tyra Banks asked her studio audience to burn their bras in a bonfire in celebration of the book B.O.O.B.S about Breast Cancer Awareness.)
If you happen to go to a live taped show, a few things you should know:
1. Get to the show taping ahead of time, at certain shows, the crew would need you to be there in advance to sit everyone comfortably, prep the audience and the stage, provide pre-show entertainment (not always, but at Jimmy Kimmel’s show there is an indoor mini-concert prior taping.)
I hope these tips would make your show going a great fun experience; don’t let these tips scare you away. These are very simple rules, and easy to memorize.
