The annual scramble to bag tickets to the Late Late Toy Show is as predictable as Santa.

Demand always exceeds supply (there were 140,000 applications this year), but you are still in with a chance of winning two seats in the Late Late Toy Show audience on December 1.

All you have to do is make a video of yourself showcasing a talent and post it to the RTÉ One or Late Late Facebook pages, or post it to Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #ToyShowTalent.

"Do you have moves like Jagger, the voice of an angel or a party piece that people just can’t get enough of?" asks RTE?

The show has been scouring the country in search of talented young performers to lend their skills on the night and the lucky few have already been chosen and are in rehearsals.

 “We’ve seen the kids, they’re great but we haven’t seen you," says host Ryan Tubridy, "You old people in your 20s, 30s, 40s and 900s, we need you to send us footage of you with your Toy Show Talent. Anything you do: blow a trumpet, bang a drum, tell a joke, as long as it is half way decent, #ToyShowTalent is all you have to do. Send them to us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and you could find yourself in that audience. Get busy, get goofy and good luck!”

Audience members must be 18 or over to attend on the night.
