Over the weekend, the comedian, 26, reportedly required audience members to sign an NDA before his November 27 show at the Sydney Goldstein Theater in San Francisco.
The 26-year-old Saturday Night Live cast member has apparently introduced NDAs for fans at his comedy shows to sign before he begins performing, Variety reports, in a bid to keep details of the performance under wraps.

The poster also claims that the contract gives Davidson's team the right to confiscate, seize and destroy any phones or cameras that breach the agreement, and that any breach will require a $1 million payment in damages and legal fees.

She said: "I didn't want to sign it because it was basically saying that I wasn't able to comment on it or have an opinion".
A Sydney Goldstein Theater employee told the San Francisco ChronicleÂ the venue was unaware of the NDA until the day before the show.
Sources were able to confirm to Variety that Davidson meant to hand out the NDAs at a Chicago show on November 30, as well.More news: Migration issue is politically urgent for EU Commission leader
