A Facebook post on the event page for “SNL” comedian Pete Davidson’s show in San Francisco attracted some attention last Wednesday, when a fan posted what appeared to be screenshots of an email she received that said attendees would not be allowed inside the show unless they had printed and signed a copy of a non-disclosure agreement.

The email says that “the signer shall not give any interviews, offer any opinions or critiques or otherwise participate…in ANY form whatsoever including blogs, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or any other social networking” regarding any of Davidson’s jokes, and that failure to comply would result in $US1 million in damages owed to Davidson.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, ticket-holders received the email only a few hours before the show, and the venue found out the day prior, on Tuesday.

As expected, plenty of people took to Twitter to mock the comedian and the NDA.

This isn’t the first time Davidson has tried to limit his jokes making their way into the public eye. The comedian regularly uses Yondr pouches at his shows, as do fellow comedians Dave Chappelle and Aziz Ansari, and musicians such as Madonna.

However, a million-dollar NDA might be going a little too far – it remains to be seen if this NDA is actually enforceable.
