“Watch What Happens Live” has been airing since 2009 and Andy Cohen has been front and center to host the late night talk show, which has seen appearances from some of the biggest names in Hollywood-- including Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep, Mariah Carey, P!nk and Oprah, along with several reality stars.

As the show has gained more popularity throughout its time on television, it has also gained a slew of fans, but its small set at the Bravo TV clubhouse in New York City has made getting tickets for the show a difficult task.

Unlike many talk shows, tickets to sit in the “WWHL” studio audience cannot be requested. In May 2017, Story Associate Producer Danny Visconti and Talent Associate Producer Anthony Lella told The Daily Dish that tickets for the show are nearly impossible to obtain. “There is no real way out there to get tickets,” Visconti said.

“If you’re a charitable person, which I hope you are, they’re often out at charity auctions so that’s how most people get in,” he continued.

Sites like Charity Buzz and Gilt previously held auctions for tickets. The tickets featured on Gilt had to be redeemed by Dec. 31, 2017 and were auctioned off to benefit See Spot Rescued, a New Jersey-based nonprofit organization with the mission to find loving permanent homes for homeless dogs. The tickets were sold at $1,000 for two VIP Tickets and $3,000 for six VIP tickets.

Fans of the show who are not willing to shell out a large amount of money for a ticket have another option however. “Befriend Andy or members of the staff,” Visconti suggested.

Meanwhile, Lella advised individuals hoping to get tickets to the show to charm their way into some free seats. “If you’re cute, if you’re a single gay guy in New York City,” he began to say before being interrupted by his co-worker.

“And you flirt with Anthony and me at the bar on Friday night...we’re very easy to trick and gullible. If you pretend you’re interested in us, we will give you tickets,” Visconti chimed in.

Anyone who should run into the “WWHL” staff members should keep in mind that they expect to be swept off of their feet with a delicious cocktail. While Lella likes “vodka with a splash, a light splash of cranberry,” Visconti prefers “a vodka soda, splash St. Germaine.”

For those who aren’t fortunate enough to bump into a staff member at an NYC bar, they should consider monitoring the “WWHL” Facebook and Twitter pages, which on occasion will offer contests where the winner receives tickets to the late-night show.

“Watch What Happens Live” airs Sunday through Thursday at 11 p.m. EST on Bravo.
