Free Comedy Central Taping Tickets in Boston

CC Half Hour

Comedy Central is taping for their comedy show The Half Hour once again Boston at the Royale and are giving FREE tickets to the comedy tapings!

The comedians will perform for a half hour for their comedy central special with two comedians per taping. The free comedy tickets are available for June 9, 2015 to June 12, 2015 with various show times in the evening.

You do need to request tickets in advance and meet some qualifications (be 21+, live in the Boston area, etc.) but everything will be e-mailed to you and you do need to confirm if you can meet the qualifications.

I went to this free comedy show taping last year at the Royale and it was a lot of fun. The only thing I didn’t like was not being able to get up during the taping so we couldn’t grab drinks or go to the bathroom but we were made aware beforehand. Overall, it made for a really fun and really inexpensive date night in the city!

For more information or to request tickets, please head here.

If you can’t make it to the actual comedy taping at the Royale on those dates, select comedians are doing warm ups at Laugh Boston on June 8th and June 9th and the shows are FREE! Laugh Boston is located inside the Westin Waterfront hotel and you can read about my comedy experience here if you are interested!

Will you be requesting tickets to this free comedy show? Have you been to the Comedy Central tapings in the past?

Side note: I usually request tickets beforehand to make sure this works before posting but because I’ve been before and can’t make it this year, I feel good about this deal without getting the e-mail. Please leave a comment below if it doesn’t work for you or it’s no longer available. Thanks!
