the

Big Bang Theory Behind The Scenes

right now we are at the Warner Brothers

lot that in the audience coordinator for

the Big Bang Theory BT my name is

Michael I'm a page for audiences

unlimited and I audience coordinated and

make sure that everybody gets in the

right place this everyone lines up I

line them up in different lines we have

a few different guest lists that they

can be on general admission that they

just get their tickets off of the

Internet they range the hundreds of

people that show up other people just

kind of line up and wait and hope for

the best and that's what you see behind

me they're just hoping that they'll get

in you've been wanting to come and see

this when we've been training just about

every day to get tickets to it we had an

opportunity to be in the California area

then we saw that you guys are doing a

taping today thought we'd be fools to

miss it

sorry coming near the end of season

three and I came to like the rest of

those and I've been coming all of this

season to first time this side second

semester

[Music]

my name is mark sweet and it's referred

to as the warm-up on the show my job is

to keep the audience informed and

entertained throughout the entire

evening

I've worked on four thousand episodes of

television shows and on this particular

show from the pilot from moment one it

was honestly it was magical people

dressed up all the time

one of the biggest dress-up shows is the

Big Bang Theory people come in with

their comic book gear their sci-fi stuff

and they go all out what are you friend

I think to me it's about understanding

what he was about

you know what nerds were thought of in

the past but now you know they're hip

the show hits pretty close to home

today we have a little bit over 200

people getting ready to see the show so

many people show up from all over the

world and everybody just is dying to get

in you know they sell their left arm to

get in and you know we can only let a

few of them in so that's kind of the

hard part of this job

[Music]

it's just a really unique experience

there's nothing like watching us to come

taped live and being in the audience

just sort of makes you feel like you're

a part of the show in some way part of

the history it's just fun to be a small

part of something much bigger I want to

see like how they do it how is it like

filming this stuff and how they're like

acting stuff I think it's cool

I wanna see the set it's just fun to see

how the process is I'm really into the

entertainment industry I want to work in

it someday

definitely sexina laughs I mean I've

been to the comic-con channels and

they're hilarious and person so I know

that anything they do like any improv is

in nucleus we're just coming to have a

good time anything will be fun for us

yes and to see Jim Parsons lisinga

ladies and gentlemen you're excited to

be here tonight round of applause

[Applause]

Hey

[Music]

your reason is simple tonight all you

need to do is to sit back relax please

do not identify your lives we're here

last week there was a guy in the back

row he goes Burnie Schwartz Cleveland

please don't do that by being here

tonight each and every one of you are

officially part of television history

always right here sitting staying six at

limited children's apartment

Penny's apartments right over here

ladies and gentlemen mr. Jim Parsons is

taking this

[Applause]

I think what about set to go

brilliant Leonard invited Howard and

Bernadette to dinner Amy once Bernadette

to act as a spy on Penny's behalf see

you later good news I finally have a

handle on my idea for three-person chess

good news but also allows for my new

chess pieces the serpent and the old

woman okay now I have to ask what do

they do when the serpent slithers to an

opposing players piece that piece is

considered poisoned and will die after

two more moves all right unless it gets

to the old woman in time in which case

she sucks out the poison turning her

into the grand Empress elegant that's

because it's simple

sometimes I'll do a scene more than once

typically they'll do it twice to ensure

they have a little backup for each scene

in case something were to go wrong or

there was a hammer in the heads or

something was wrong technically and

sometimes the scene role of be filmed

more than twice even three up four times

and then they'll come back and do what's

called a pick up sometimes and pick up a

small piece of the same

so for the audience even though they're

watching the 30-minute show sometimes an

evening can run anywhere from three

hours to up to five and a half hours so

we want to make sure everyone's engaged

and kept up to speed and keep them

laughing it was so much fun even to

watch them read tape a whole scene

because I really enjoyed how they do a

couple takes and then change part of the

wording or whatever and make it even

thing otherwise before I like really get

the punch line go a whole different

direction and I thought that was neat to

be able to see how they fix things so

gonna be in 3d what I don't know it

doesn't matter I'm gonna say 3d that'll

really get her goat I'm gonna say 3d

that'll get that little food does goat

I'm gonna say 3d that'll let her know

the studio has faith in it so now when

we watch it and we're not necessarily

gonna know what what's gonna happen

with feeling people so identified with

this show that now I just tell them I

know the show means a lot to you you

cannot really identify with the show and

if you just come up and tell me what the

show means to you and before I know what

there's a half a dozen or a dozen people

that on their own volunteer and just

come up they know it they love it and

they feel it it actually makes all

things math and science kind of cool in

a nerdy way it's a celebration of all

nerd I love this show because they're my

people

where'd he work I work in Boulder

Colorado and what do you do specifically

I build spaceships

more reason as well I'm madly in love

with Sheldon Cooper I didn't expect that

it would be shot chronologically he

would think that they would just do all

in one area and then doing the other and

they didn't what i like cows' that's not

the point

it was its own point go on it was nice

that everything was in order

what the coffee-shop Raj could decide

whether he should take an experimental

drug if the three the social anxiety

disorder be actually a witness here on

the monitors what are you doing oh just

getting comfortable that was quite

shocking when he took off his clothes

but they did that behind the curtain I

still tried to sneak a peek but you know

actress if not you should be expressive

face was a big surprise for sure yeah I

didn't expect that at all wait where are

you going we're doing so well she never

even got to see my penis we don't know

if he actually got fully naked but it

looked like it from the angle that we

saw

once again ladies and gentlemen
