Pete Davidson is apparently very concerned about his jokes leaking.
The 26-year-old Saturday Night Live cast member and stand-up comic has reportedly been requiring attendees to risk bankruptcy with a $1 million non-disclosure agreement before his stand-up shows, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
The move is part of a recent wave of comics taking extraordinary measures to prevent their acts from leaking.
Steep penalty: Pete Davidson, 26, has reportedly required attendees to risk bankruptcy with a $1 million NDA before his stand-up shows, according to the San Francisco Chronicle; shown October 12
Pete's massive NDA was first reported after his November 27 show at the Sydney Goldstein Theater in San Francisco.
According to a Facebook post by a ticket holder, Pete's team sent out an email only hours before the show informing audience members that they would need to sign the agreement in order to be let in.
Ticket holders had previously been told they would have to place their cell phones and smart watches in locked Yondr pouches before the show started, and that phones, cameras and any other recording devices were prohibited.
The practice of locking or confiscating mobile phones has increased in recent years, as it has become easier than ever for audience members to post jokes to social media.

The NDA significantly escalated the event's security. According to the attached documents, attendees '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) in the disclosure of any Confidential information…'
Any attendee who broke any of those rules would be required to pay Pete $1 million under the NDA's terms.
Though they're often used as a means of saving jokes until they can be marketed in a filmed special, Pete's document goes a step further by not allowing his fans to even opine on the quality of his material.
Pete's stand-up features raunchy and risqué material, and he may want to keep
