How can I get tickets for ISIHAC?
Some advice: the programme is now recorded in the larger provincial theatres, rather than a radio studio as used to be the case. In order to fund the cost of theatre hire, travel and accommodation on such a small budget, the programme charges for tickets. This means that tickets for I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue recordings can now only be obtained from the theatre in which the show is being recorded.
The BBC Ticket Unit no longer has any responsibility for dealing with ISIHAC ticket distribution. In order to find out which theatres ISIHAC is visiting prior to any series, listeners are advised to send the programme's Broadcast Assistant, Kate Cottam, their email address. She will email back with details as soon as he has them.
There are now over 2,500 people on Kate's mailing list. Even being on this list won't guarantee that you will be able to get a ticket. The show is much loved and tickets for shows in theatres capable of seating as many as 1,500 usually sell out in about a week. It might also be the case that in any one series, there are no venues within a reasonable distance for your home.
However, many hundreds of people from the mailing list have been able to obtain tickets, and registering an email address with Kate still represents your best chance of attending a recording. We should point out that Kate runs this service unpaid and from the goodness of her own heart, so please be as nice to her as you possibly can.

There is also a very good fan site which often gets the latest scoop on ticket sales. If you're serious about getting tickets you should visit it often.
