Chris Rock Performs in Atlantic City After Oscar Slap

Comedian Chris Rock took the stage in Atlantic City a week later the slap heard around the world and it looks like Rock and places like the Borgata are having the last laugh as ticket prices skyrocket.

Two hours before showtime, the cheapest tickets found were around $550, with people telling FOX 29 they couldn’t find anything under $800 in the days after the slap.

“Afterword I said, ‘Baby, did you see the slap,’ because she was sleeping,” Andrew Hackman said. “I said oh this is real. I looked at my phone and said these tickets are going up, we just hit the jackpot.”

Alas, the tickets were a 60th birthday present, so they decided not to cash them in and go see the show. They bought the tickets two weeks ago for around $130.

“I looked at where I’m sitting now and tickets are $735,” Hackman commented.

“I bet you’re glad you didn’t wait?” asked Eddie Kadhim of FOX 29.

“We wouldn’t go,” Hackman replied.

Cell phones and cameras are not permitted inside the lounge. A person present said that Rock echoed what he said in his first show since the slapthat he’s dealing with the incident and that he has a whole written routine that he’s sticking to for this tour.
