To our fans:

The only official sources of information for Last Week Tonight tickets are the official site of Last Week Tonight, this site or our official Facebook or Twitter. Please don't give your money to any other website claiming to be able to get you tickets to Last Week Tonight. The tickets are ALWAYS free! All times are in Eastern Daylight Time (EDT).

If you attended anytime during the last FOUR seasons, please do not apply for tickets again. We have such a high demand for tickets that we need to clear a backlog of thousands of fans who have not had the chance to see the show live.

Please note, if you enter multiple times in the same lottery you will be eliminated from that lottery. You must apply only once in every lottery you apply to.



We do not have an official standby line. We are very careful about our booking process and try to replace any cancellations with the next person who got through to our ticket lottery. However, you are welcome to try your luck on any given Sunday that we tape, but please understand that we frequently do not have space or have only limited availability. Please do not line up for Standby prior to 5:30pm.

To our international fans:

We understand many of you have had problems with the telephone number and zip code parts of our form. When filling out the form, please use either the telephone number and zip code of the place you will be staying while you are in the US, or you can just complete the telephone number and zip code portion of the form with ten 0's for the phone number (000-000-0000) and five 0's for the zip code (00000).

We look forward to seeing you in our audience this season.
