Do you ever have those moments where you’re stuck listening to your friend, who will literally not stop talking about a show, a movie, or a comedy special that they really liked? Annoying, right? But when was the last time that you asked your friend about a show that they saw, and they told you that they were legally not allowed to talk about it? Probably never.What’s up guys it’s Emile Ennis Jr. here with Clevver News and you’ve probably never had that happen to you because it’s pretty much unprecedented. Until Pete Davidson came around. That’s because Pete is now apparently requiring everybody who attends his stand-up comedy show to sign an NDA.And not just any NDA, a 1 million dollar NDA. An NDA, or a nondisclosure agreement, is a legal document that states you are not allowed to discuss certain topics or information that is disclosed to you.Usually, entertainment or tech companies will have new employees sign an NDA if they will be exposed to secret company information that they do not want to be spread around.Sometimes, in VERY particular, unusual circumstances in Los Angeles or New York, people might have to sign an NDA before they see a movie or hear an album that has not been released yet.

But even that is usual and only done in very extreme circumstances. Like, even Taylor Swift doesn’t have her fans sign NDAs at her secret sessions.But Pete Davidson does, apparently. And his NDA states that people have to pay him one million dollars if they discuss his stand up show online. As for comedy shows, that’s pretty much unheard of. Especially because a lot of comics gain more fans through word of mouth. People talk or post about the comedian, or a particularly funny set that they had, and more people want to go see them next time they perform.I don’t understand why Pete would think this million dollar NDA shtick is a good idea. Like, are we not allowed to discuss his shows, good or bad? But he’s certainly doing this because of incidents that he’s had in the past. Like in April of this past year when he walked out of the comedy club before his set even began.

Or more recently when he went on a bizarre tirade about young people in the audience being on their phones, recording the set. That night, he went as far as to call the people in the audience, quote “privileged little assholes”. During that set, when he saw people using their phones, he said “that’s why we’re embarrassing. That’s why the world is gonna end in 25 years, because you’re all f-ing r-words”His words, NOT MINE! Pete plays at a lot of colleges, like The University of Central Florida where the last cell phone incident went down. And 9 times out of 10, college kids don’t have a cool million dollars to spend on a comedian who is already worth about 4 million dollars himself. Look, I’m willing to give comedians some leeway. Like, if you want to enforce a no-phones policy, that’s great, we should all be present when taking in a comedy show. Sometimes at live performances like these, the staff will lock up everyone’s phones, or put them in a little unopenable bag to ensure that people don’t use them.
And I get that. People pay to see you perform, and you don’t want people filming your performance and showing it to other people for free. Fine.But making people sign an NDA, and threatening to sue them for 1 million dollars plus legal fees is just out of this world. Apparently though, this policy has been going on since at least early November.

But I guess nobody in the entertainment industry who thought this policy was unusual has attended one of Pete’s shows since then - because they would have probably spoken up sooner. She concludes by saying “Don't perform for the public if you don't want people to have an opinion about it!”In the official NDA, they call Pete’s stand up “works in progress” creative content. Meaning that he’s testing out a lot of new material to see how it works with audiences. These typically can be hit or miss, and it makes sense that Pete might not want these new jokes recorded. But this dramatic, expensive NDA has been going on since early November, and his material should definitely have been tested out by then. It does also say that whoever chooses not to sign the NDA can’t go into the show, but can get a full refund.Well at least that’s nice of him I guess.But don’t forget… you can see Pete for Free 99 every Saturday on Saturday Night Live. Though maybe he’ll have people start signing NDAs for those performances soon as well! Truthfully, though, Pete hasn’t been in much of SNL this season at all.
