Looking for FREE entertainment?

10517289_960748530608296_8452879042989574373_oHad a great time yesterday in the audience of WINDY CITY LIVE!   Although the topic (“Pillow Talk”) wasn’t on my list of favorites, it’s always fun to go downtown for an activity and FREE is the best kind of activity!

There are three shows that tape in Chicago and offer free tickets to audience members:  Windy City Live tapes at the WLS/ABC studios at 190 N State Street (across from the Chicago Theater and just down the street from the old Marshall Field’s store (now Macy’s, of course).   Here is the website to get tickets:  http://windycitylive.com/about/Join-the-Windy-City-LIVE-audience/8134297.

The Steve Harvey Show and Judge Mathis tape at NBC5 Chicago, 454 N Columbus Dr, Chicago.  I have been to The Steve Harvey Show several times and it is a hoot.  The website to score tickets for Steve Harvey is http://www.steveharveytv.com/get-tickets.  The website for Judge Mathis tickets is judgemathistv.com/tickets.

The Steve Harvey Show, as well as Windy City Live frequently give surprises to the audience members and it is not only fun to attend the tapings, but it’s also fun to go home with something too!

I’ve attended these tapings for years and they are lots of fun.  Although you may not actually enjoy the topics presented, you will definitely enjoy the wonderful people you’ll meet and you’ll enjoy the experience of seeing how these shows are made.  Plan for a block of time to include the wait which can be quite some time.  You’ll have to arrive early to check in.  Be aware that the production often overbooks to make sure there’s a full audience. Sometimes additional segments are taped while you’re there in addition to the day’s agenda.   Wear colorful clothing for a couple of reasons:  It looks good on TV and it makes it easier for your family and friends to find you in the audience while they’re watching for you!

If you have a reduced fare ticket for seniors on the RTA, you will be able to have a nice day of entertainment for almost nothing!  Enjoy!
