The three-hour Tom Brady Roast on Netflix has one seemingly tense moment

Inglewood, California. — Three months before Tom Brady is labeled by critics as Fox Sports' top NFL analyst, he took his share of criticism from comedians, former teammates and his longtime coach Sunday night during a live comedy event made for streaming on Netflix .

And it's safe to say that after the one-liners and jokes Brady heard during three hours of “The Greatest Roast of All Time” at The Forum, he'll do just fine.

“It's like a football game. You run with a game plan, and then you see how the strategy goes, and then you adapt on the fly,” Brady said before the event. “This is what a dressing room has looked like to me all these years. So it's not like I'm used to people not laughing at me.”

Comedian Nikki Glaser, whose monologue was one of the funniest of the night, portrayed the roast as “the Super Bowl of comedians” as the level of competition was ratcheted up as everyone wanted to outdo each other.

Brady faced more blitzes and pressure than during an average NFL game as an impressive array of comedians, former teammates and opponents took the stage. Host Kevin Hart said before the event that no topic was off limits, and Hart went on the offensive early with jokes about Brady's ex-wife, Gisele Bündchen.

“Gisele has given you an ultimatum. She said retire or we're done. If you have the opportunity to go from 8 to 9 and it only costs you your wife and your children, you have to do what you have done. I have to do it,” Hart said, referring to Brady coming out of a brief retirement for another season in 2022.

Brady apparently objects to jokes about Robert Kraft

The only time Brady objected to a joke was when Jeff Ross referenced Patriots owner Robert Kraft and massages. In 2019, Kraft originally received a misdemeanor charge that he paid for sex at a Florida massage parlor. Prosecutors later dropped the charges after courts blocked the use of video footage from cameras installed by police in the massage parlors.

Brady walked up to Ross and said in his ear “Don't say that again,” but it was clearly caught on the microphone and heard by those watching the roast at home. It was not heard by those present.

CBSSports.com's John Breech writes that Ross responded by pointing at Kraft and saying, “Okay, okay. He's having fun, look at him.”

“It's certainly possible that this was all part of the act, but it certainly felt like Brady was really mad at the joke. On a night where there were a lot of awkward jokes, this seemed to be the only one that really got under Brady's skin.” Breuk noted on.

Brady and Belichick are teaming up again

Later, Kraft and former Patriots coach Bill Belichick attempted the podium together after some urging from Hart.

Belichick was fired in January after 24 seasons with the Patriots, and much has been written in recent years about the friction between the six-time Super Bowl winning coach and owner.

After joking about the fact that this is a reunion and “unlike many family reunions, there are some people I'm desperately trying to avoid,” Kraft praised Belichick for what the two had accomplished.

“I want to say this is the greatest coach in the history of football who did what no one else has done. And the fact that he and Tom Brady were together was the greatest honor the good Lord gave me,” Kraft said .

It wasn't the first shot (of alcohol) Belichick took. Rob Gronkowski had Belichick and Brady take a shot together after his monologue. Gronkowski celebrated by spiking his shot glass.

Belichick appeared at the start of the roast during a pre-taped segment when he told Brady that he was “starting the roast” instead of Drew Bledsoe. Brady replaced Bledsoe in 2001 when Bledsoe was injured in a Week 2 game against the Jets and led the Patriots to their first Super Bowl title that season.

“For all of you out there thinking about who's responsible for the Patriots' success during the time Tom and I were together — was it Tom or me — the truth of the matter was it was both because of me,” Belichick said. said.

However, Brady did have some fun at Belichick's expense toward the end of the show.

“I've been out of the game for a minute, so I'm curious: How many Super Bowl rings have you won since I left?,” Brady said. “Maybe it's not just the guy on the sidelines. When I go to the Indy 500, I don't ask the winning driver, 'Hey, did you fill up your car?'

Brady was ready

Hart said before the show that he thought Brady went into the event with a great mentality. Brady came in well prepared and discussed his monologue with a group of people, including those from Fox Sports.

“You have to be able to laugh at yourself and I love what he's doing in this forum,” Hart said. “I love that he's embracing the things that some people think he's running away from. It's a celebration of greatness and we're doing it in a fun way.”

Bledsoe also said Brady has had a sense of humor, but this was a different phase.

“I thought he was very brave. There's plenty of material to make fun of him,” Bledsoe said. “The truth is, when you're a professional athlete, roasting each other is something we do in the locker room every day. And so you better have a thick skin. Now people can laugh about it.”
