"The Talk" tapes on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, with one show daily except Thursday when 2 shows are taped. All shows begin at 11am, except on Thursday when taping times are 11am and 1pm.
You must be 18 and over.
How many times may I attend a taping?
You may attend one taping per week as a main ticket holder OR as a guest. When booking tickets, please make sure you and your guests' are not double booked within the same week. All reservations involved will have their tickets canceled without notification if the ticketholder and guest names appear more than once within the same calendar week (Monday-Thursday). As a result, please make sure you and your party communicate before applying for tickets to a taping. To attend more than one taping during a calendar week, you may apply through our stand-by policy. To do so, call the day prior to the taping you would like to attend between the hours of 4:00-4:30 pm PST (no earlier), and for a Monday taping please call the Friday before. You must always speak with a live Audience representative in order to request these tickets, therefore any voicemails left on our line will NOT be valid. Please note, multiple phone calls from the same party and the same names will be considered a double booking and will be disqualified.
What if I am a person with a disability?
If you or anyone in your party requires an accommodation to attend the Show because of a disability, please let the representative know if you require an accommodation for a disability when they call to book your tickets. We provide accessible seating (including companion seating) and other accommodations at all tapings to guests with disabilities. The availability of accessible seating cannot be assured if the number of audience members requiring the accessible seating on any given taping day exceeds the allotted number of seats. Should you have any questions regarding accommodation for a disability, please call us at (818) 655-8255.
