Yes I have been in plenty. Nearly every live studio show that has been made in Melbourne, with the exception of Countdown which really annoys me to this date. I have even been in the audience of 3 shows in the USA. The latest being only 2 years ago seeing David Letterman live New York. It was such a dream of mine.
Yes! I have been in the audience for the Gruen Transfer and it was really interesting to see how much gets cut out of the final show! I also went to some tapings of Big Brother a million years ago when it was first starting out. The tricks they used to get the crowd yelling and screaming were pretty interesting - they had a comedian telling jokes between takes and giving prizes away to people who yelled and screamed the most for the cameras.
Like, YEARS & YEARS ago, I was in the 'Romper Room' audience! My friend was taking her daughter (who's now about 45 years old!) to 1 of the last tapings of the show. And the other 1 was Ray Martin's mid-day show. I was in a mini bus, about to leave the carpark, after the taping of the show, & he walked past the window of the bus, so I spoke to him & took a photo out the window of the bus! I used to work with 1 of his sisters, in the last job I had before our 1st daughter was born. (Ray's sister still lives in the next suburb to me.)
