BE IN THE AUDIENCE: TICKETS TO THE TALK

***This information is for New York tapings ONLY***

TICKET INFORMATION

If you plan on being in the New York area and would like to attend a taping of THE TALK please follow the instructions below. Studio tickets are free to anyone 18 years of age and older. The show tapes on Monday May 12th at 2:00 pm and 4:15 pm; Tuesday May 13th at 11:15 am and 2:00 pm; and Wednesday May 14th at 10:30 am EST.

All requests for tickets are currently submitted online by filling out our CALENDAR TICKET REQUEST FORM. Please fill out the entire ticket request form and select only one date. Multiple entries will not be honored. Due to the high volume of ticket requests, we'll do our best to honor the date that you requested; however please be flexible when requesting a date.

Once your ticket request form is submitted online, a representative from our audience department will call you to book the tickets requested. Please note that submitting a request DOES NOT confirm your ticket(s) to a taping. Tickets are only confirmed AFTER you have spoken directly with a representative of the audience department. You will receive a written confirmation (via email) of your reservation. Due to the high volume of requests, PLEASE DO NOT CALL OR EMAIL US REGARDING QUESTIONS ABOUT YOUR TICKET REQUEST AS YOUR APPLICATIONS WILL BECOME NULL AND VOID UPON DOING SO.

You may only attend ONE taping per week as either a main ticket holder or a guest. If you submit multiple entries, apply under different names, or we recognize you as a repeat guest, entrance into the taping and any future tapings will not be granted.

Due to the high volume of requests, we will not be accepting any group submissions for the New York tapings only.

**At this time, all New York tickets are FULL, but please refer to our STANDBY policy below.

STANDBY

If you have applied for a date and have not heard from an Audience Department Representative and you are in the New York area, you may call for a Standby ticket. Phone calls for CANCELLATION OR STANDBY TICKETS (if available) can be obtained by calling THE DAY BEFORE THE REQUESTED TAPING DATE between 4 PM and 4:30 PM EST at 818-655-TALK (8255). If your requested taping falls on a Monday, please call between 4 PM and 4:30 PM the Friday BEFORE the taping. YOU MUST SPEAK DIRECTLY WITH AN AUDIENCE REPRESENTATIVE to request a standby ticket, if available. Please note, multiple phone calls from the same party and the same names will be considered a double booking and will be disqualified.

LOCATION

THE TALK tapes before a live studio audience at Chelsea Television Studios at 221 West 26th Street, New York, NY 10001. Below is a map of the location, but we encourage you to do a web search so you are familiar with the nearby area.



GENERAL SEATING / CHECKING IN

Seating is guaranteed ONLY until the arrival time stated in your confirmation e-mail. Due to the nature of the show, there will be NO HOLDING SPACES IN LINE -- ONLY COMPLETED PARTIES WILL BE CHECKED IN. Arriving AFTER your arrival time automatically places you and your party on a STANDBY basis and your seats are no longer guaranteed. Please be aware there may be some substantial standing in line before entering the studio and going through security. For security purposes we require that the main ticket holder (person who made the reservation) be present to attend the taping. All ticket holders must have a valid government-issued photo ID (passport, driver's license, and/or military ID). These names MUST match our security list or they risk being turned away.

AGE LIMIT / APPEARANCE RELEASE AGREEMENT

All guests must be 18 years of age or older. All guests must show valid photo ID with proof of age. The only acceptable forms of identification are passport, driver's license, state ID and military ID. These forms of identification are to be used in conjunction with our Appearance Release Agreement, which you will be completing and signing once you arrive in the audience holding area and prior to entering to the studio.

SHOW POLICIES

Please limit all bags and purses and their contents to facilitate the security process. All bags and purses are subject to screening and search. Please note that you are NOT permitted to bring any audio or video recording devices (including cameras), sharp objects or mace/pepper spray into the studio. Cell phones with cameras are allowed in the studio, but must be completely turned off completely BEFORE entering the studio, and should remain off for the ENTIRE duration of the taping. Your items might be confiscated should you bring anything that is not allowed! Also, we are not responsible for any stolen, lost, or damaged items.

PARKING / TRANSPORTATION

While the studio does not have a designated parking lot, there are many other garages and subway / public transportation stops near the area. We suggest using an online source to find a solution that best suits your needs.

SPECIAL NEEDS / INDIVIDUALS WITH DISABILITES

We are committed to making THE TALK equally accessible to persons with disabilities. If you or anyone in your party has special needs and requires assistance to attend the show, please let us know when an audience representative calls to book your tickets or before the show date. We provide accessible seating (including companion seating) and other accommodations at all tapings to persons with disabilities.

The availability of accessible seating cannot be assured if the number of audience members requiring accessible seating on any given taping day exceeds the allotted number of seats. Accordingly, accessible seating may be reserved prior to the taping date by calling 818-655-8255. Reservations for accessible seating will be held and guaranteed until the scheduled arrival time.

If you do not arrive by the scheduled arrival time, we can no longer hold your reservation for accessible seating and you will be placed on standby status. Any remaining, unreserved accessible seating will be available only on a first-come, first-served basis and may be released after prior accessible reservations have been accommodated to standby guests who do not require such seating. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you reserve accessible seating in advance when you speak with an audience representative to ensure your reservation. Please note that accessibility seating generally fills quickly.

Disabled guests with service animals should call at 818-655-8255 before the taping date to ensure sufficient space for the service animal. Assistive listening devices are also available for all tapings.

UPDATE: At this time, all allowable ADA guideline seating has been booked. If you arrive with a special need, we will NOT be able to accommodate your party, and you will be subject to going up and down stairs.

We encourage vibrant jewel tones or bright colors, but please stay away from ALL black and/or white outfits, sequins and stripes. Please DO NOT WEAR HATS OR LOGOS OF ANY KIND.
