Late Night with Jimmy Fallon standby tickets?

Question by Elizabeth V: Late Night with Jimmy Fallon standby tickets?
I just found out I’ll be taking a surprise trip to New York in three weeks. I have always wanted to see Jimmy Fallon, and was wondering if there is actually a good chance of getting into the show with standby tickets? How early should I arrive to try and get them?

Also, do you get stuck with really bad seats in the back? Thanks for all your help!

My friend, tickets to “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” are available by calling their ticket office at (212) 664-3056. Please call for availability. Generally, tickets are booked about one month in advance from the actual date of taping.

You can request up to four tickets, and all audience members must be at least 17 years old. You may only book tickets once every six months, and you may not book tickets with any other groups of people. Also, information about last minute ticket openings will be advertised through Jimmy’s Twitter updates at

For standby tickets, arrive no later than 9:00 a.m. on the morning of the taping under the “NBC Studios” marquee on the 49th Street side of 30 Rockefeller Plaza (GE Building). Only one ticket will be issued per person. All standby tickets not handed out at 9:00 a.m. will be placed at the NBC Studio Tour Desk on the second floor of the NBC Experience Store in Rockefeller Plaza. Please note that a standby ticket does not guarantee admission.

Subway: take the “B”, “D”, “F” or “M” lines (Orange Line on the subway map) to 47th/50th Street – Rockefeller Center.

I hope this information is very helpful.

Good luck
