Reasons Why You Came Back Early: Colbert Edition

Written by

Another snowstorm, another reason to love New York and Columbia. As they did during the storm last year, the kind folks at The Colbert Report reached out to Bwog, letting us know that the “odds are good” of getting standby tickets for the day’s taping of the show. Your friends made fun of you for coming back early… but now who’s laughing! Ha ha! (You are. At the taping of The Colbert Report.) Full tip with details:

Hey Columbians!

It’s that time of year again! Due to heavy snowfall last night, we over at “The Colbert Report” think that today will be a great day to head on down to the show for standby tickets. Standby tickets are not guaranteed, but the odds are good considering the heaps of snow outside. Besides, school hasn’t started yet, so what else are you doing?

Come on down!

The Colbert Report
513 W. 54th St
New York, NY 10019

Standbys should sign in around 4:30pm, but then they don’t have to be back until 6pm (meaning you can go and get warm during the interim). The taping ends around 8:30pm. Standbys must bring a government issued photo ID (like a driver’s license or passport). You must be at least 18 years old to see the taping.
