Pete Davidson Reportedly Makes Fans Sign $1 Million NDA Before Attending His Comedy Shows
By Scott Baumgartner
Fans attending Pete Davidson's recent comedy shows reportedly had to agree to some steep terms.
In recent days, the Saturday Night Live star has done a number of sets around the country. However, before fans could attend, many claim to have been sent a non-disclosure agreement they were forced to sign demanding they not speak about the show. According to one fan, it also threatens attendees with $1 million fines if they don't abide by the agreement.
"I got an email today informing me that in order to see this show I have to sign a non disclosure agreement," one fan wrote of the show. "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. It also authorizes them to confiscate (including seize & destroy the contents of) any cell phones, cameras or PDAs and that ANY BREACH of the agreement will REQUIRE PAYMENT OF $1 MILLION in damages as well as the legal costs."
"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," the fan 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!"
A number of other fans of also claimed they had to sign an NDA just hours before the shows.
