We were visiting New York during the first week in March and at the top of our list for things we wanted to do was attend a Tonight Show taping as we are big fans of the show and Jimmy Fallon. My husband and I both made accounts on 1iota.com and were online at exactly 11:30AM the day the tickets became available to try to get on the wait list. We each requested 3 dates (which is the max you are allowed to request) and then played the waiting game. Exactly 2 weeks before our first taping request (it was on a a Monday) I got an email saying we had been CONFIRMED for two tickets!!! We were so ecstatic!
After checking in at 30 Rockefeller Plaza and waiting in line. we went through security, were given our tickets, and then were held in the Peacock lounge for about an hour until it was time to enter the studio. During this time, the NBC pages will come around and chat with you and take your picture if you like. Then we lined up according to the letter on the back of our ticket and entered the studio.
The NBC pages will seat you, and we were lucky enough to get great seats on the aisle, so I knew I was gonna get a high five from Jimmy! After the warm-up guy comes out and gets the crowd ready the show starts and moves very quickly. The Roots played some great music and during our show the entire Women's Olympic Hockey Team was on, which was really cool The absolute best moment was before the musical performance when Jimmy came up into the audience and answered questions some questions. IT WAS AMAZING and Jimmy is such a kind and down-to-earth person. We really appreciated him doing that as he certainly didn't have to, but it really made the experience one I will never forget.
