See Chris Hardwick Tape His Standup Special In NYC For Free

You might have heard our own Chris Hardwick mention on the podcast that he’s going to be taping his Comedy Central standup TV special in New York on February 17th. You might have also heard him mention that tickets to the show are free. Are you in the New York area? Have you put your name in the running? No? What are you waiting for? We don’t know how many are left, if any, but this isn’t the kind of thing you can wait around to do. You gotta move fast. Like, now.

Here’s how to put your name in the running for free tickets to see the show: click here, fill out the form, there you go.

Yeah, it’s that simple.

And here are a few additional details: There are actually two tapings, at 7:15 and 9:15 pm. It’s at the Jack H. Skirball Center for the Performing Arts (see? It’s art!) at NYU, 566 LaGuardia Place, right across from Washington Square and a very short few blocks from several subway stations and the PATH train. You’ll need to show up and be in the queue at least 30 minutes in advance. It’s 18-and-older, and you have to either live in the tri-state area or be in New York that week to be eligible for tickets. That’s pretty much what you need to know.

Now, let’s fill that room. Come on, you’ll get to see the show before anyone else, you know it’ll be funny as hell, and it’s free. Deals don’t come much better than that.

    So excited for tonight. I wonder if there is going to be stuff to buy.

  2. The email said by Feb 15th at noon. That has passed. I am going only because I whined….I mean asked my friends nicely. One happen to have a ticket.

    I know of a couple of people who tweeted that they had tickets. Start begging on Twitter and Google plus.

    Good luck. 🙂

  3. xando calrissien says:

    Is the contest done? I just heard about the possibility of tickets from the podcast. Please post if all seats have been assigned.

  4. John says:

    I put my request in on the 29th, and have not received a confirmation E-mail. Guess I’m not going…Womp womp.

  5. Randy says:

    I still haven’t gotten a confirmation. While I would love to accept the tik from @nerdpunx, I planned on taking my special lady for V-day since I am out of town on the 14th. I’d love to go and so would my wife – we’re comedy nuts and big fans of Hardwick.

  6. gillyblueyes says:

    @Tiffany-I did get my confirmation the other day, am officially going to the early taping. If Randy still wants your extra ticket, I hope you guys can work it out. 🙂

    @Tiffany-I did get my confirmation the other day, am officially going to the early taping. If Randy still wants the ticket, I hope you guys can work it out. 🙂

  8. Tiffany says:

    I hope you guys all have gotten you’re confirmation emails!

  9. Tiffany says:

    @randy I sent my request I think on the 27th of jan so hopefully you’ll be getting your confirmation soon since you sent one out just after me you should recieve your email soon, but if gilly can’t make it the offer is open to you if you don’t recieve your confirmation. Like chris I want everyone to be able to make it.

  10. Randy says:

    @Tiffany when did you actually submit your request? i did mine either Feb 1st or 2nd and I haven’t gotten my confirmation yet. I live in NY, but outside of the city. I will be down in the city next Friday though and really hope I get in!

  11. Tiffany says:

    @gillyblueyes I just got my confirmation email today so if there where tickets left you should have received one but if not I put in for two if you want to take the other ticket just let me know. contact me on twitter @nerdpunx if youre on there if not just leave a comment here I’ll check back to see.

  12. gillyblueyes says:

    @Tiffany – I’m going up to NY that weekend anyway for a family thing, but I want to go to the taping SO MUCH. Here’s wishing us both luck. 🙂

  13. Tiffany says:

    @gillyblueeyes I know exactly how you feel I haven;t got a single confirmation email yet and I put in for tickets about maybe two weeks ago. I mean my problem is I put in for the day off from work but if I don’t get tickets I might as well just pull the day off request.

  14. gillyblueyes says:

    Anyone know what the average wait time for ticket confirmation is? I know the email said I could hear as late as the 15th, but I’m just nervous that I won’t get tickets (even though I put in for them ten days ago) because I don’t live in the tri-state area anymore. I’m going to be there that weekend regardless, but there was nowhere to write that on the form…and now I’m obsessing.

    Has anyone already received confirmation that they have tickets?

  15. The Sexy Coolman1081 says:

    It’ll be on CC?

  16. iLean says:

    I think I just died. Why does it have to be 18+?! I would give anything to go to this.

  17. Twigg says:

    I put in for tickets this morning. I hope I get some. My husband and I couldn’t go see the nerdist show at the 930 club, but this would be the perfect anniversary gift.

  18. Tiffany says:

    Put in for ticktes like a week ago here’s to hoping I get some I’ve seen chris before and had a wonderful time.

  19. Adam says:

    I put in for tickets! Hopefully I get picked to go! I went to the last two shows the nerdist cast did in NYC and they were great! I am sure this one is gonna be great too, even though there is no Matt and Jonah.

  20. Randy says:

    I put my name in. It would be a great V day gift for my wife. We’re rambunctious laughers. Hook it up, Nerd!

  21. Ryan says:

    In my opinion 17 is one of the worse ages in a persons life. It’s one year away from 18, which means that the maturity level is there, yet you still aren’t old enough to go to certain places. One year is holding me back from your show, and it sucks considering I live in Brooklyn.

  22. Kaylee says:

    So bummed that it is 18- and- over.

  23. Missy says:

    I sent this along to my sweets in New York and he is looking at his plans and may put his name in to go 😀

  24. Kasey says:

    I freaked out at 3 in the morning when I found out! Luckily me and my fiance will be there that weekend. Flying up from SC!

  25. Alex says:

    I really wish i lived closer. I’m super good at laughing.

  26. meh says:

    he is a comedian?

  27. Anna says:

    Blast foiled again. Class doesn’t allow me to fly out in time.

  28. Alisa says:

    Maybe it’s wishful thinking, but my brain read “See Chris Hardwick’s Sex Tape.” Boo that it didn’t.
