Dave Chappelle in Seattle
I found out about the AWOL superstar comedian's surprise show at the Paramount Theater at 11:30 this morning when I got to work, 90 minutes after tickets went on sale.
I checked Ticketmaster at 11:32 this morning. It came as no surprise that all of the theater's 2807 seats were all sold out. According to Metroblogging Seattle, the tickets were gone by 10:15.
I checked Craigslist at 11:34. Tickets are already selling over there for upwards of $100 a piece.
From what I can tell, the show was announced to the public only a few hours ago. All of this happened in the space of, maybe, four hours.
UPDATE: Actually, the Seattle PI reported on the show last night. Nevertheless, I stick by the "sheesh."
