Cape Town – Want to see Pete Davidson live?

Well, watch out, you might end up forking out a large amount of cash over and above the price of the ticket.

Pete – who has been doing a series of sets around The United States – reportedly sent non-disclosure agreements to fans to sign demanding they not speak about the show after watching it.

According to Entertainment Tonight, one fan claimed the document also threatens attendees with fines of over R14 million if they violate the agreement.

The fan said in a post on Facebook with photos of the contract: "I got an email today informing me that in order to see this show I have to sign a non-disclosure agreement. 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 authorises 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. 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!"


Other attendees posts about the NDA on Instagram.
