Advance Tickets

Ticket requests are handled by 1iota (they also handle ticket distribution for many other shows). To request tickets, visit the 1iota website and fill out a ticket request form.

You’ll receive notification via email if you’re selected for tickets.

Getting an email notification for tickets does not necessarily mean that you’ll get into the show. In order to ensure a full audience, more tickets are distributed than there are seats in the studio. Entrance tickets are distributed on a first-come-first-served basis on the day of the taping.

You’ll be instructed when to arrive at the studio, usually 60 to 90 minutes before show time. You may have no problem getting in if you get there just before the required time, but it might be safer to get there early. It all depends on how many people who got the email ticket notifications actually show up.


Standby Tickets

Standby tickets are available about 90 minutes before showtime. You’ll only get in on standby if the studio doesn’t fill up with advance ticket holders.


Apply to be on the Show

The Chew is always looking for people to participate on the show for things like meal makeovers and recipe sharing. You’ll find links available participation opportunities on the 1iota site.



The Chew tapes at ABC Television Studios, 30 West 67th Street, New York, NY 10023 (between Columbus Avenue and Central Park West).
