Netflix Announces Live Roast of NFL Legend Tom Brady With Bill Belichick Reportedly Joining

    Tom Brady's retirement plans have taken him from the golf course to the owner's box and now to Netflix's latest "Greatest Roast of All-Time."

    Tom Brady’s NFL career was nothing short of greatness. Seven Super Bowl titles, two NFL MVPs, and every single passing record that we keep count of is owned by the former New England Patriot and Tampa Bay Buccaneer.

    Following his 23-year NFL career, Brady’s post-football life has been nothing short of hectic. From golf competitions to a future broadcast career, the former Michigan star has been looking for new ways to occupy time.

    Now, it appears the greatest quarterback of all time is making his next venture into comedy.

    Netflix Announces Live Roast of Tom Brady

    In a series of tweets on Monday morning, the streaming platform announced that there would be a live roast of Brady hosted by long-time comedian Kevin Hart on May 5.

    “No helmets. No mercy. No Brady Rule,” Hart says in the promotional video.

    A list of surprise guests are expected to participate in the event beginning at 8:00 p.m. ET. According to NFL Network’s Gregg Rosenthal, one very notable guest will be Brady’s long-time coach in New England, Bill Belichick. Given how their fractured relationship during the tail-end of Brady’s career with the Patriots, despite winning six Super Bowls together, this will be very interesting to watch at the very least.

    In a press release sent out, Robbie Praw, Netflix’s vice president of stand-up and comedy, says the service “can’t wait to burn three-time Super Bowl–losing quarterback (Tom) Brady, who only went back to the NFL in order to delay this roast.”

    Brady lost three Super Bowls during his historic NFL career — once in 2007 to the New York Giants in Super Bowl 42 when his Patriots were undefeated going into the game. He lost again to the Giants just four years later in Super Bowl 46 despite once again being a heavy favorite.

    His last Super Bowl loss came in Super Bowl 52 when he set a game record for passing yards despite falling 41-33 to the Philadelphia Eagles and journeyman quarterback Nick Foles.

    Despite the potential jokes that could come from his playoff failings, Brady in the promo called himself “un-roastable.”

    At least, that was his first reaction …
