Why Seat Fillers in Denver Are Free Ticket VIPs

Denver Seat Fillers are Highly Entertained

By Lu, OTL City Guides & Seat Fillers

Seat filling isn’t just for awards shows or TV tapings anymore. In fact, seat fillers across the US and in London are having even more fun claiming free pairs of tickets and enjoying all kinds of live entertainment.

Today's concept is a win-win for both seat fillers and the promoters who invite them:

  1. OTL Seat fillers receive free pairs of tickets to local shows and events.
  2. Denver's arts and entertainment community benefits from a free, private, and easy way to expand the audience.

Why Be a Seat Filler in Denver?

Allow me to ask you a few questions before I answer, “why should I be a seat filler in Denver?”

  • Are you a fan of live plays, musicals, and comedy shows?
  • Do you enjoy a wide variety of shows and events?
  • How do you feel about treating your family and friends to free tickets?
  • Would you be open to last-minute outings instead of planning for weeks or months ahead?

Did You Answer Yes X4?

If you answered yes to all four, then you’d 100% enjoy being a seat filler.

But if any one of my questions resulted in a definitive no, then you’re in the wrong place. Instead, you might want to check out the Denver Events Calendar powered by Evvnt to purchase tickets directly from venues. Yes, Denver seat fillers receive free pairs of tickets, but never know what's about to pop up.

Hey, we love expanding our presence with new Denver club members. But we don’t want anyone to join unless it’s the perfect fit.

Seat Fillers in Denver

There are three reasons why I asked you those leading questions...

One: Denver Seat Fillers attend live shows and events.

Two: There might be the occasional concert from time to time, but local seat filling is all about plays, musicals, and other theatrical events. OTL also receives quite a few invitations from comedy clubs. Additionally, other surprise tickets are common, like burlesque, dance, sports, escape rooms, classes, etc.

Three: Denver Seat filling is more about last-minute opportunities. Venues privately offer comp tickets when they know they’ll have some open spots. So, notice tends to be more like a few days rather than several weeks or months.

Oh, and we asked about treating your family and friends because OTL memberships provide up to four seats per show.

What Types of Events Are Offered to Denver Seat Fillers?

Most people who are new to OTL and local seat filling are curious about the ticket opportunities.

Privacy to Shows

However, you probably know the saying “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas,” and that applies to OTL in Denver as well. The reason why the concept has worked so well for more than seven years now is because of a policy called “privacy to shows.”

What privacy to shows means is that OTL and never publicizes the names of its entertainment partners and members stay mum.


Because that defeats the purpose of the venue selling tickets. As a seat filler, you can cancel your membership at any time. So, if you saw that OTL offered $50 tickets to a show you wanted to see, why wouldn’t you just join the club for $13.99, reserve two tickets valued at $100, and then cancel your membership?

We’re here to support Denver shows, events, and activities, not find ways to work the system.

Variety and Value

Over the years, though, OTL has provided members with some incredible opportunities. Some tickets might be in the $5 or $10 range. But others have been $50, $100, or even more.

When it comes to the most common opportunities, I mentioned that plays and musicals reign supreme. But, anything goes these days for seat filling. We’ve had virtual events, escape rooms, conferences and expos, dinner shows, you name it!

Plus, again, don't forget that members treat their guests through two and four-seat membership options.

How Can I Be Seat Filler in Denver?

If you’re excited to be a Denver seat filler, it couldn’t be easier to join in on the fun.

All you have to do is go to OTL’s pricing page and select one of the three “preferred” memberships. You’ll have your choice of the following:

  • Premiere Preferred – two seats per show
  • Grand Preferred – up to four seats per show
  • Special Preferred – a discounted Premiere for seniors, military, first responders, teachers, and college students

OTL’s low membership dues are all-inclusive - you never pay for tickets. So, if you have a $13.99-a-month Premiere plan, you can reserve up to two seats for shows and events that pop up. Sometimes there might not be anything, and other times you might have a few options. You get to share your secret seat filling VIP privileges with family and friends without worrying about the cost.

Can It Really Be This Simple? What's the Catch?

I can’t say that there isn’t a catch (or three). But I still think you'll find everything to be super simple, affordable, and fun.

One, Two, Three

One: The first is that there’s no guarantee as to the number of shows or specific ones. That’s the entire premise of OTL seat filling, though. It’s fun to see what pops up, but that means one month, it could be one show, and the next, you might have five or six open for reservations.

Two: A second “catch” is that Denver seat fillers must show up to anything they choose to reserve. There are no mandatory events to attend. However, if you make a reservation, you can’t no-show. OTL’s partners count on those seats being filled.

Three: Oh, and I guess there is a third catch, but it’s easy, too. OTL Denver seat filler memberships auto-renew monthly, but you can cancel any time without jumping through hoops. Just click cancel in your private member area.

How Do Event Promoters Take Advantage of Denver Seat Filling?

While I've focused on the fun of seat filling for Denver area members, I'd be remiss if I didn't touch on how OTL works for event marketers and promoters.

It’s an excellent tool to have in your promotional toolbox, as OTL is a private, free, and easy way to fill some seats or add to your event. And it doesn’t have to be a traditional show with assigned locations. Seat Fillers have gone virtual and also love activities and out-of-the-box opportunities. They’ve been to escape rooms, filmings, festivals, classes, and more.
