    I was kicking myself so much that I didn’t have the foresight to get tickets for a taping when I was in New York! What an awesome experience, and kudos to your sister to working that Twitter thingy 😉
    I’m totally going to do this the next time I plan a trip to New York.

      It takes serious foresight, but definitely worthwhile!

    This is so cool! I just attended my first live taping of a show last week, went to see The Chew at Epcot for the Food and Wine Festival. I was surprised that I couldn’t really hear them talk. Were you able to hear Jimmy fine in an enclosed space/was his voice amplified at all? Thanks for the tips!

      I LOVE the Chew. That is too bad that you couldn’t hear! We definitely didn’t encounter that issue with Jimmy.

    Oh my goodness, this sounds like SO much fun! I would totally do something like this! I also think it would be really fun to go to Saturday Night Live! But I think that’s harder to get into…

      Yes! SNL is the next thing we are planning, but I also heard that is super tough to get into. Fingers crossed!

    Seeing Jimmy Fallon live is on my bucket list! Sounds like such an awesome experience yet incredibly anxiety-inducing! haha

    Wow that must have been great. We normally watch Jimmy Fallon. He’s so entertaining. And it’s great that you got a gift. I’ve never attending a live taping of a show myself, but then again living in New Zealand means there aren’t too many options for opportunities like that.

      If you ever make it stateside, there are loads of opportunities. There was a huge group of Australians at our taping. They engage the audience during breaks so it was cool to see how far people came!

    I never went to a live taping but I would love to, this looks like a great experience. Having tickets but not being able to attend the show must be painful, their tactic is so cheeky. Glad you had to see Jimmy Fallon in person and great that you got a gift.

    Never knew there are so many rules around the show. It looks like you had a great time there though 🙂

    That sounds like a lot of fun. I’ve always wanted to attend a taping of a late night comedy show. An Amazon Alexa is such a great gift, you are so lucky. What a fun trip to NYC.

    Purely for fun!!!!! At times I need events like this to get me out of tiring day and seeing Jimmy Fallon love would just be one of such moments of surprises that I’ve been promising myself. Perhaps, a trip to NYC would warm me fun and also a chance to see Jimmy live. I’m looking forward.

    Wow this is such a detailed post about getting tickets to see Jimmy Fallon. I am glad the stress and time were worth it. It definitely seems like something that takes time and patience but so much fun! I go to New York often but never on weekdays. Will have to look into this next time I go.

    Wow. Although I am not a fan, I can see that Jimmy Fallon has a big fan following. And it was such a super thrilling day for you. And you have given some great tips out here from your own experience to others who aspire to get the tickets to meet and see him.

      Thanks! They also use the same site to obtain tickets for other NBC talk shows, so you can fill in the blank with your desired host!
