Python Python Basics All Together Now Handle Exceptions

When entering amount of tickets wanted, it loops back into the while loop making it impossible to complete the purchase

import time


tickets_remaining = 100  
tickets_remaining = int(tickets_remaining)
while tickets_remaining > 0:
  print("There are {} tickets remaining.".format(tickets_remaining))

  name = input("What is your name?")
  tickets_requested = input("Hello {}, how many tickets would you like to buy?".format(name))
  #Expect a ValueError to happen and handle it
      tickets_requested = int(tickets_requested)
      if tickets_requested > tickets_remaining:
        raise ValueError("There are only {} tickets remaining".format(tickets_remaining))
  except ValueError as err:
      print("Oh no, Please make sure that the value you entered was a number, try again.")
    if tickets_requested > 1:
      ticket = "tickets"
      ticket = "ticket"

      total_cost = tickets_requested * TICKET_PRICE
      total_cost = str(total_cost)
      #output price to screen
      print("The total cost for {} {}, is ${}".format(tickets_requested,ticket,total_cost))

      proceed = input("Would you like to proceed? Y/N")
      if proceed.lower() == "y":
        print("SOLD! Purchase confirmed")
        tickets_remaining -= tickets_requested
          print("Thank you {} for your time. Goodbye".format(name))

print("Sorry, All the tickets are sold out.")
