Comedian Pete Davidson reportedly makes fans sign a $1 million non-disclosure agreement before they're welcomed into his shows.
"I got an email today informing me that in order to see this show I have to sign a nondisclosure agreement", the post said. It stated: "The individual shall not give any interviews, offer any opinions or critiques, or otherwise participate by any means or in any form whatsoever (including but not limited to blogs, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, or any other social networking or other websites whether now existing or hereafter created)". Any breach of contract would "require payment of $1 million in damages" as well as any resulting legal feeds, People reports.
While the fan made it clear that she wasn't upset about phones, cameras or other electronic devices being confiscated during the show, as it's standard practice, she did think the other requirements were a bit "over-the-top". "But to not be allowed to express an opinion, whether I liked it or not, is off-putting in an Orwellian thought police way".
Imagine going for a stand-up comedy show and your phones being seized away. According to the document, attendees who don't wish to sign the document will receive a full refund of their ticket purchase.
Effect of Sound, which first reported on the news, noted that according to various Twitter posts, Davidson has been requiring audience members to sign NDAs since November 7, when the Saturday Night Live star performed at the Varsity Theater in Minneapolis.

Sources confirmed to Variety that Davidson also used the NDA before his show on Saturday at the Vic Theater in Chicago.
