Dave Chappelle sells out 5 Toronto shows in minutes

Comedian Dave Chappelle is coming back to Toronto for the first time since 2012. But good luck trying to find tickets to see him.

From February 9 to 13, Chappelle will take up a five night residency at the Danforth Music Hall. Tickets went on sale last night and reportedly sold out incredibly quickly, leaving many fans in the lurch.

Many are taking to Reddit and Facebook in the hopes of securing a spot at the east side venue, which has capacity for 1,500 people.

For this event, however, Ticketmaster has made tickets non-transferable. But that hasn't stopped a number of them from appearing on sites like Kijiji - some of which are going for more than $500 (they were originally $91.75 each).

Back in 2012 Dave Chappelle sold out three nights at the Winter Garden Theatre.
