I was visiting New York City and wanted to go to Saturday Night Live. There was an ad on Craigslist for two tickets, for which we paid $100 each.

Saturday Night Live DOES NOT SELL tickets. You can't buy them. There were two other couples that showed up that same night and bought them from the same guy.

He is heavier set and sort of "artsy". He said he was in the theater business and this is why he had access to these tickets, which he had gotten as complimentary because of his contacts (since they don't sell tickets).
