UPPER EAST SIDE — The joke's on him.

A teen selling $640 in fake tickets to Dave Chappelle's standup show at Radio City Music Hall was caught red-handed by undercover officers last week, the NYPD said.

Police tracked down 19-year-old Cameron Pickett's listing for four tickets to Chappelle's Aug. 19 performance with guest star Childish Gambino on Craigslist, agreeing to meet him inside the Dunkin' Donuts at 1703 Third Ave. around 7:20 p.m. that day to do the deal, police said.

The tickets, however, listed the guests as "Donald Glover and Childish Gambino," who are the same person, and didn't match the color of real Radio City Music Hall tickets, the criminal complaint said.

He was arraigned on four counts of criminal possession of a forged instrument and released without bail, prosecutors said.

His attorney did not immediately return a request for comment Friday.
