Former FBI Director James Comey's book tour is becoming a hot commodity. Tickets for his appearance on CNN's Town Hall are going for "as much as $850 on StubHub," though top face value is $95, according to New York Post's Page Six.

Why it matters: Comey is cashing in on a bumpy 2017 that kicked off with President Trump firing him. According to New York Magazine, his book "A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership" is already a best-seller, and received a $2 million advance. Page Six is reporting that tickets for his tour in Seattle "are $352 on resale sites."
