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).

Due to the circumstances, we ask that ONLY fans who have never attended the show before apply for tickets via the lottery. 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.
