Throughout the television season there are generally two ways to land tickets to a taping of Saturday Night Live: (a) sleep outside of 30 Rockefeller Plaza and grab a standby number at 7:00AM the morning of a taping, or (b) know somebody, who knows somebody, who knows somebody.
But did you know there's one other method that's worth a shot? NBC holds an annual lottery for free tickets, in August only. To enter, simply send an email to
