Get free tickets for taping of ‘206’

Here's your chance to see comedy in action.
That is, if you can stand it.
Tickets are available to see live episodes of "The 206," shot in front of a standing -- not seated -- audience at a Bellevue studio.
The season will air starting in April on KING-TV after "Saturday Night Live," but to see the show live you won't have to stay up that late.
"The 206" is a revival of Pat Cashman and John Keister's popular sketch comedy series "Almost Live!" that ended a 15-year run in 1999. This time around, Cashman's son, Chris, is a key player in the comic mix.
Pilot episodes of "The 206" shown in January tested the market with skits such as "Weed and Marriage" and "Renton Abbey." Viewer ratings were good enough to bring the funny guys back for more.
What are they cooking up next? Well, let's just say there's a photo on "The 206" Facebook page of Chris Cashman in a Hazmat bunny suit with meth kingpin Walter White of "Breaking Bad."
If you need to get your Seattle humor fix, maybe Betty White can massage your funny bone.
Seattle is one of five cities where the flirty 91-year-old and her band of salacious seniors prank unsuspecting whippersnappers for the NBC show, "Betty White's Off Their Rockers." Pranks include a gassy geezer, Ikea scooter follies, a wayward Segway and a nun seeking a boob job.
