Owner description: Popular Comedy Central show is taped daily (except Fridays) at The Daily Show studios.
Reviewed 3 November 2016

Ticket reservation tells you 4:30 or you won't get it. Waited outside until 6pm. Then waited at seats until 7 for a comedian and Noah came out at 7:15. Ended at 8pm. It was a very fun and funny show but only go if you love the Show! Don't understand why they make us wait get there so early. Could understand an hour or even 1.5 hours before. First live show - very fun but be patient. Tip: Make sure to eat beforehand - no food/drinks allowed inside. No bathroom breaks so they send you to use the bathroom before going inside studio.

I planned weeks in advanced to see the show. I received an email saying I had tickets. We get to NYC, rush to get to the studio only to be told that we're on a "not guaranteed list." I had proof that I had tickets but the young staff were inflexible and rude. Needless to say we didn't see the show because we didn't want to waste any more time standing in the mile-long lines. If you are planning to go see the Daily Show, make sure you get an email that says "Guaranteed Seating" on it.

This was our first time attending the filming of a tv show. This turned out to be a special one because it was the night of the first Clinton-Trump debate. The show brought us in early and we all watched the debate then Trevor Noah came out and the broadcast went live.

You can get the free tickets online. They have a limited number of guaranteed seats and then first-come first serve. Not sure why, but seems to work. Get there before the time they advise. You don't have a choice of seats as they seat you according to your ticket number.

They have 1 bathroom for you to use. When the show starts you can't get back in if you leave.

There's a lot of standing and waiting.

Everyone involved with the show was terrific to us.

It's a fun and different thing to do.

We were lucky enough to score guaranteed general admission tickets. We had no idea who the guest was going to be and we show up, stand in line for an eternity and then are finally seated. We discover that Bill Clinton was the guest--it was the highlight of the trip. We were in the first row and it was a hoot to experience. Angelo, the comedian who warmed up the crowd, did an awesome job and we were pinching ourselves over the experience.
