Pete Davidson asks fans to sign $1 million NDA before attending comedy shows

Pete Davidson is reportedly making attendees of his shows sign a $1 million non-disclosure agreement before being able to attend one of his comedy shows.

A fan who wanted to attended a show at the Sydney Goldstein Theater in San Fransico, posted screenshots of the contract and detailed its demands on Facebook.

“I got an email today informing me that in order to see this show I have to sign a nondisclosure agreement," read the post. “In that NDA the signer CANNOT GIVE ANY INTERVIEWS, OPINIONS OR CRITIQUES about it in ANY form whatsoever including blogs, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or any other social networking.”

She also says the NDA gives Davidson’s team the right to confiscate, seize, and destroy any phones or cameras that breach the agreement, and that any breach will require a $1 million payment in damages and legal fees.

“I understood and was willing to consent to the initial request of locking up any phones or cameras brought to the event, but I think this a bit ridiculous and over the top,” she continued. “I get that comedians are protective of their jokes and don’t want their routines rebroadcast, but it’s rather Orwellian to not allow anyone to share an opinion on it. Don’t perform for the public if you don’t want people to have an opinion about it!”

While this news has only just now begun gaining nationwide coverage, Davidson started implementing this NDA policy since at least November 7th during a gig in Minneapolis.

he's tacky and i hate him

and yes, i had to sign sort of a blanket NDA for my job -- i transcribe mostly market research files, and obviously if i went around telling people "[company] is going to come out with [product]!!!!!" all the time it would be....... unethical, i guess? at any rate, it would fuck things up for the companies, lol. i think there's also a part of my starting paperwork that was like "you can't benefit financially from what you learn," like i can't find out that [company] is coming out with [product] and buy a kaflillion dollars worth of stock in the company
probably making some weird jokes about his 18 yr old girlfriend and doesn't want to get backlash
What the fuck kind of loser would PAY MONEY TO SEE PETE DAVIDSON????????
lmao he is absolutely not worth all this
I hate this bozo.
stewie i would like to respectfully point out that perhaps "comedy" should be in quotation marks when it comes to ol' butthole eyes 🤷🏻‍♀️
but yeah i used to work on political campaigns and ndas are fairly common there for obvious reasons! so i've signed a few. but signing one for a comedy show (unless it's being recorded for a special or something) seems like.... a lot
Punk ass, but I absolutely do not care about anybody who pays to see him. Also, there's plenty to @ this motherfucker about, and hurt his feelings. No purchase necessary.
Why would you even pay to see this hack live?
he needs to have a peg knocked down or two
He’s probably nervous someone will out him for making terrorist attack or porn star shamey jokes again. He’s such a mess.
I've signed a work related NDA and I left with a huge check.

I think about it a lot.
that sounds sinister

CK pulled a similar move, I think. Male comedians are truly the height of pathetic. They're so averse to normal criticism that they're trying to FINE PEOPLE for voicing opinions about their "jokes"?? l m a o sad

And yes, I've had to agree not to talk about movies when I see them in advance, and I've had to sign many times over agreeing not to divulge details of the audio files I transcribe for $$$. Most of them are boring nonsense, but I get it. But this is absurd.
this almost makes me want to get tickets to see him and john mulaney next year so i can write a sign my name on the nda as "everyone's here for john, dipshit".

He really does think his shit doesn't stink.

I blame Ariana for blowing him up and everyone else for caring about who he dates.
mte. I can't believe we still have to put up with him a full year after their breakup D:
