Frequently Asked Questions

How can I be a seat filler in Austin?

You no longer have to be in Los Angeles or New York City to be a seat filler, as OTL Seat Fillers has evolved the concept for Austin and other locations across the US and in London. Becoming an Austin, Texas-area seat filler is as easy as registering on OTLSeatFillers.com.

What's the difference between an awards-show seat filler and an Austin seat filler?

They've got an exciting mission, but seat fillers for award shows (Oscars, Emmys, Grammys, and BAFTAs) are there to do a job. They temporarily fill in empty seats for celebrities. OTL Seat Fillers might not be rubbing elbows with celebs, but they're there to enjoy the show. They receive pairs of free tickets by private invitation from Austin area venues. And, they're treated just like every other audience member.

What types of shows do OTL seat fillers in Austin attend?

Theatre reigns supreme, but OTL seat fillers are invited to a wide variety of local events. In addition to plays, musicals, comedy shows, and music events, they've attended sporting events, classes, wine tastings, escape rooms, movies and film screenings, book signings, lectures, and more.

How much do seat fillers in Austin pay for tickets?

The answer is zero, as OTL seat fillers never pay for any tickets. Instead, they pay low (very low!) monthly or quarterly club dues covering up to four complimentary tickets to anything they opt to attend. And, the dues are discounted for seniors, military, first responders, and educators.

What are the benefits of seat filling in Austin?

OTL Austin seat fillers belong to the most entertaining club around. Not only do they receive complimentary tickets to all kinds of things to do in their hometown, but they get to treat their family and friends, too. While the free admission is the biggest benefit, seat fillers love being introduced to new shows and events that they might not have attended (or even heard of) without being a local seat filler, and the surprise of seeing what pops up out of the blue.

Why do representatives from Austin area shows, events, and activities use local seat fillers?

Local seat filling is an effective event partnership marketing tool. Teaming up with OTL Seat Fillers is a free, private, and easy way to fill seats. But seat fillers do more than just fill those seats. They buy food, beverages, and merchandise, bring guests above and beyond their seat filling privileges, and tend to return to venues they love (even without comp tickets!). Additionally, inviting Austin seat fillers is a great way to build a marketing list for future events.

How do Austin promoters and marketers invite seat fillers?

It's simple, as OTL has an event promoters page with an online event submission form. After a new partner submits a form, OTL follows up to confirm the process. The show is then posted in the private members-only area so seat fillers can make reservations. It's partnership marketing at its best! No tickets or money are ever exchanged, as OTL compiles a reservation list, and seat fillers check-in at the venue right before the show.

Thanks for having such a great service!  I have experienced so many cool events and none of which I would have thought to go to without my membership.  You have successfully removed me from my seat at home and placed me in a considerably more entertaining seat!
