Will Smith's Oscars Slap Is Having A Major Effect On Chris Rock's Career


Live events ticket company StubHub said that sales for Chris Rock's current tour have exponentially increased in the days since the Oscars. Ticket prices have jumped to about $250 on average and more tickets have sold this week than the rest of March combined.

Clearly, people are clamoring to see whether the 57-year-old comedian will work being slapped by Will Smith into his upcoming sets. While Rock reportedly declined to press charges against Smith, he has yet to offer public comments on the altercation.

Rock's tour, dubbed the Ego Death World Tour, is slated to run through November 18. Coincidentally, the tour is scheduled to end with two shows at the Dolby Theatre, where the Academy Awards, and the slap still dominating headlines, took place.
