How To Get Tickets To The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon
How To Get Standby Tickets to Sold-Out Shows
If you’re not able to request tickets in advance, stand-by cards are available same-day for each show. Stand-by cards do not guarantee admission, but when we have extra tickets or cancellations these seats can then become available to the stand-by line. For stand-by cards, please arrive no later than 9:00 a.m. on the morning of the taping. The line forms on 49th Street (between 5th and 6th Avenues), beginning at the Tonight Show sign and heading towards 6th Avenue. Stand-by cards are numbered and given out, in order, to guests in line at 9 a.m. After receiving your numbered card, you will be able to leave the line and will be instructed to return to check-in at a specific time later that afternoon. At this time seats may become available and we will provide tickets when possible.
Once an individual has joined the stand-by line on 49th Street (between 5th and 6th Avenues, beginning at the Tonight Show sign), they CANNOT leave and return to their original place in line. An individual may not arrive early and "hold spots" for additional people to join later in the line, nor can an individual replace someone holding a spot in line for them. One stand-by card is granted per person. Stand-by line cards will be distributed at 9 a.m., but the standby line typically begins forming a few hours earlier. There is no standard time that the stand-by line starts, and there is no guaranteed number of individuals that we are able to admit from stand-by on any given day.
Any standby cards not handed out at 9:00 a.m. will be available at the NBC Greeter’s Stand by the Grand Staircase at 30 Rockefeller Plaza.
Everyone in line must present a valid photo I.D. containing a date of birth. No one under the age of 16 will be admitted into the show, regardless if a parent or guardian is present.
NOTE: Before you go, please call The NBC Ticketing Information Office to confirm that we are taping on the day you wish to attend. The Ticket Office is open 9 a.m. - 5 p. m. ET, Monday through Friday at: (212) 664-3056.
