Last week my wife and I were invited to be paid live audience members for the taping of a well known show that was filming in our city.
- The only requirements that were listed were to be able to sit for up to four hours and clap and cheer when you were told to do so.
It sounded simple enough, so we took up the offer and made our way down to the set. At the start of the taping everything was going fine. Then after an hour or two into the show it started to get extremely warm inside. Despite the lack of cool air we were told to stay in our seats or risk losing our pay for the day. This threat only worked for thirty more minutes or so before people began shouting out at the producers during the filming of the show to fix the air conditioning. Once people began disrupting the taping chaos began to break out. There was shouting back and forth from the producers and other audience members, and they refused to answer what the problem was with the set. To my wife and I that was one of the most insane few hours we had ever gone through, but to the people working on that show it was most likely just another day on the set. The next show they should make should be about putting ten people in a room and turning off the air conditioning. From what I saw today I know that show would be packed with plenty of drama and excitement!
