“Worth the Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

If your calendar allows it is worth a trip. Seeing Jay in person, as he is a very approachable guy, and all the crazyness that goes on behind the scenes is just cool. A little different than what you see in your living room!

“Never clapped so much in my life!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

It was really cool seeing a Jay Leno show but there are some things we didnt like. You do have to wait in line forever. It is very very very cold so a jacket or coat is a must have. They do not feed you like some of the other shows. You do need to clap and scream the whole time whether it is funny or not.

“Average - not really worth it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

It was good to see a filming of the Tonight Show however it wasnt really worth our time. It was really hard to get to by public transport and takes up ALOT of time. We got there early as advised but there was really no need to. They are so strict with cameras and phones - people were getting told off for even looking at their phone! Any photos taken people were made to delete, they dont even let you take photos outside the studio! It was fun watching the show being filmed but it went so quick once you are actually in the studio and not worth the amount of time it takes out of your day!

“Waiting area a bit toasty on a warm day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Our experience was overall a great one. We enjoyed being part of the live taping of Jay Leno's Tonight Show. However, I was shocked that NBC does not make more of an effort to keep the holding area shaded and cool. A cover overhead and perhaps some misters would have been a great help on a 95 degree day.

We found free parking on Warner off of Bob Hope. There was a $5 parking area, which was definitely reasonable for CA. The sign for this parking area was at the street you would turn down to get to the hospital that is off of Bob Hope. (Right across from the holding area for guests to see Jay Leno.) This sign was very small and low to the ground.

“Great experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

It was freezing cold in the studio...bring a sweater! If you are not young or dressed trendy then you can bet you are not going to be seated in the first 5 rows. Studio holds about 300 people...so you will want to get there by the recommended time on your ticket - else you won't get in. Parking is across the street for $5 and the only bathrooms are by the parking lot or outside near the holding area outside the studio entrance. Request tickets at least a month in advance.
