Do you want to be in the audience during one of Conan O'Brien's famous late night monologs? You can get a seat to one of the Los Angeles tapings, and the best part is that the tickets are free.

In order to get the "Conan" tickets, there are a few simple steps to follow. It's important to remember that these tickets are free and O'Brien has a lot of fans. That means you may not get to see the show right away or on a particular day. It may take persistence to get your name in the hopper and score some tickets, but it's worth the effort.

How to Get Free Tickets to "Conan"

"Conan" is taped Monday through Thursday during 42 weeks of the year, so there are plenty of tickets available. However, because they are free, the show overbooks tickets to ensure a full audience. This means that even if you do have a ticket, you might not be able to see that particular show.

  1. Request tickets by accessing the online ticket calendar on Conan's official site. Pick an available date during the month you'd like to see the show and click on the link to get to the ticket request form. You can only choose one date to request tickets, so choose wisely.
  2. Tickets are handled through, which handles a number of talk show ticket requests. You will need to set up a account to get tickets.
  3. Fill out the ticket request form. Be ready to provide the following information: full names of everyone attending, e-mail addresses, mailing addresses, and phone number where you can be reached.
  4. You can request up to four tickets. If you're chosen to receive tickets, you'll get a ticket confirmation via e-mail. This will be followed by a phone call from a member of the "Conan" audience department anywhere from one to four weeks prior to the taping date you requested.
  5. "Conan" tapes at Warner Bros. Studios, which is located at 6564 Forest Lawn Drive in Los Angeles, California. 
  6. The show is typically taped at 3:30 p.m. then broadcast that night.

"Conan" Ticket Tips

One of the most important things to remember is that tickets to "Conan" are free. This means that if someone offers to sell you tickets, you should refuse. The show will not honor these tickets, you will not get into the show, and you will lose money.

  1. Tickets are non-transferable and the primary ticket holder (requester) needs to be with the group when arriving. Attendees must be 16 years or older and a photo ID is required. No one with luggage, backpacks, or large shopping bags will be admitted.
  2. Tickets are booked weeks in advance and requests are high enough to require a lottery.
  3. Standby tickets are available for nearly every taping. You will need to call the show's office (the phone number is on the ticket website) between 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. the day of the show you'd like to attend.
