As you already may have heard, Team Coco is returning to New York City for four live tapings of Conan on TBS this fall.

But how do you procure yourself tickets to one of these Conan NYC tapings?

Well, it’s an online lottery (the system SNL also uses). With some catches. To wit:

Go to the Conan NYC ticket site and pick the taping you’d like to attend (Oct. 31-Nov. 3, 2011) at the Beacon Theatre. Just one taping, mind you. Fill out the form. If you win the ticket lottery, then you’ll be notified by email and also by phone. And you must be at least 16 years old.

If you don’t win the lottery, then you still can try your luck at day-of taping standby tickets. But them’s be in limited supply.

Good luck!
