NFL World Shows Love to Netflix’s Hilarious Roast of Tom Brady: ‘Haven’t Laughed That Hard in a Minute’

The NFL and entertainment world came together on Sunday night to roast the legendary Tom Brady, and the event did not disappoint.

Sunday night was a truly unique experience in the world of sports. Tom Brady, the unquestioned GOAT of the NFL, let his guard down and spent nearly three hours hearing his friends and cohorts roast him unmercifully.

The event turned out to be awesome, with some of the greatest comedians of our time and even former New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick himself getting in on the action. Naturally, social media was ablaze during and after the big night.

Tom Brady’s Roast an Instant Classic Full of Reactions

Leading up to the roast, many had no idea what to expect. How far would the roasting go? Would they take it easy on their friend and colleague? Well, the internet had their fun with it and proved the night did not disappoint.

Eli and Peyton Manning were the butt of several of these jokes on Sunday night, and while Peyton was there in person, Eli was not. However, that didn’t stop him from getting a joke off on social media.

Former NFL quarterback Robert Griffin III called Sunday night’s roast “SPECTACULAR.”

Consider former NFL WR and big personality, Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson, a big fan of the night as well.

One surprise out of Monday night’s roast was how hilarious Belichick was. Not only did he display a great sense of humor, but he also delivered some really funny jokes of his own directed at others in attendance.

It’s something NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport was quick to point out, posting, “Bill Belichick crushed it. That was fantastic.”

Many comedians participated in last night’s roast, but perhaps none were more impressive than Nikki Glaser, who received a standing ovation for her performance. Former NFL players Will Blackmon and Devin McCourty were particularly complimentary of Glaser after last night’s event.

Alex Barth of 98.5 The Sports Hub in Boston — who has covered the Patriots for many years — shared his one gripe of the evening, and it was simply disappointment that he won’t be able to watch it for the first time, again.

“The only thing I don’t like about that roast is I’ll never get to experience it for the first time ever again.”

Jarrett Bailey of USA Today captured the night simply, but effectively.

“Haven’t laughed that hard in a minute.”

Overall, the reception of Brady’s roast was almost entirely positive, as it pretty much surpassed everyone’s expectations with how funny it was.
