Do you miss the Jon Stewart era of The Daily Show? Are you fully vaccinated for Covid-19 and willing to prove it? Can you get to New York City with haste? If you answered “yes,” then you can watch July in-studio tapings of Apple TV+ current-affairs show The Problem with Jon Stewart for free.

The comedian’s new current affairs show now offers fully vaccinated people the chance to score free tickets to sit in the studio audience in New York for tapings on July 14 and July 16, according to ticket distribution service 1iota. It’s likely tickets for future tapings will become available, too.

Must verify vaccinations

To attend, audience members must have received their last does of vaccine for COVID-19 at least two weeks prior to the taping date. Per CDC guidelines, two weeks after the last does is when a person is considered fully vaccinated.

You can make a free-ticket request by clicking “Submit Now” for the requested date on this page. If it’s accepted, you/your group (or “pod”) must upload a photo of each person’s vaccine card for verification.

In addition to that proof, audience members will complete a screening onsite, including a temperature check. Once cleared, they can enter the venue, where they must wear a face covering.

The free tickets are open to people aged 18 years or older.

Be among the first to know the show

Details about the show and its content are a little scarce, other than what Apple in April said when revealing the new series. It will be a multi-season, one-hour, single-issue series that plans to “explore topics that are currently part of the national conversation” as well as Stewart’s advocacy work.

AppleTV+ said airings of The Problem with Jon Stewart will start in September. The show will have a companion podcast in which further discussion of topics aired on the show will take place.

The comedian’s run as host of  The Daily Show with Jon Stewart on Comedy Central came to an end in 2015 after garnering 20 Emmy Awards.
