In The Big Bang Theory, do they shoot the show in front of a live studio audience?

You have three question together, the first one and third one are off-topic. If you don't mind you can remove them to make it fit in good format.Do they have live audience while shooting for a particular episode? could be a good question but others are not fit for our site. –  Ankit Sharma Mar 29 '13 at 6:03
Do you have any "particular episode" in mind? –  KeyBrd Basher Mar 29 '13 at 8:52

For the most part, yes it seems, for proof, here is one of Chuck Lorre's vanity cards I remember seeing sometime back.

Yes. While investigating anything regarding "anything", you should have some look at the reviews or plot in Wikipedia. I think a single quote is very much enough...

The show is filmed in front of a live audience

Here's the reference (23rd one) for your tickets: http://the-big-bang-theory.com/tickets

I had this doubt as they have multiple locations like their apartments, their university, the cafe penny works in.. –  Mitaksh Gupta Mar 29 '13 at 8:59
@MitakshGupta: The locations are all sets and not actual locations. Ever noticed that they show the apartment(s), canteen, comic store etc. from a specific angle. The other side is probably to seat live-audience. –  KeyBrd Basher Mar 29 '13 at 13:08
