Someone Andy knows is a guest on the Late Show with David Letterman tonight, and I thought it would be cool to snag same day tickets and see it live. In the past, I picked up same day tickets outside the theater, but we were both too busy to head over today.
I did some research and found (212-247-6497), the phone number for same day tickets. It said to call no earlier than 11:00am EST, so I picked up the phone and called at 11:07am EST. Within one ring, someone picked up and it was the same day ticket hotline. They asked me my name, my guest’s name, and told me where to meet near the theater. They didn’t even ask me a trivia question, they just gave me my tickets.
I have seen the Late Show 5 times now, and if you want to see Letterman before he retires next year, this is the easiest way to snag tickets.
