Dave Chappelle Surprises Fans Who Bought Fake Tickets on Craigslist

Playing Dave Chappelle Surprises Fans Who Bought Fake Tickets on Craigslist

When Deidra Dickens bought tickets to Dave Chappelle's North Carolina show last week, she had no clue it would end with the legendary comedian himself personally handing her tickets.

Dickens was duped out of $500 after she responded to Craigslist ad advertising the tickets. As soon as she sent scammers the money, they ghosted her.

"It's one of those instances where life gives you lemons and lemonade gets made from it," she told WBTV.

Now, it seems they’ve learned their lesson. WBTV helped arrange the surprise meeting between the Dickens family and Chappelle.

"It felt good. It felt like I just got to make something that was wrong right and it didn't hurt me or cost me anything to do it so I'm just happy it worked out," Chappelle said.

The comedian also advised Dickens to always purchase from reliable sources.
