Tom Brady has proven himself to be one of the best quarterbacks of all time. There is no doubt that the man can take substantial physical hits, but will he be able to survive the mental blow of being roasted on Netflix’s upcoming comedy special?
Coming to the streaming site in 2023 is the upcoming series called “Greatest Roasts of All Time: GROAT.” which aims to playfully roast whatever guest is in the hot seat that day. The 45-year-old quarterback is an executive producer of the show and will also be the first victim of the roast.
Starting the jokes early, Brady’s press release referred to him as “Gisele Bündchen’s husband” and the “sixth-round NFL draft pick.” “To quote my good friend, Marshawn Lynch … ‘I’m just here so I won’t get fined,’” the athlete commented when announcing his special.

Netflix’s vice president of comedy looks forward to working with legendary quarterback Tom Brady
Robbie Praw, Netflix vice president of stand-up and comedy formats, also had no problems holding back the jokes in the statement that announced the exciting collaboration. “We 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,” Praw said.
“In all seriousness, it’s a huge thrill to work with the greatest football player of all time on this project. No one’s better at taking hits and still coming out on top, so we know the roast will be a breeze for Brady.”
Following the end of the 2021 season, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback shocked the world when he announced he would be retiring from his career in professional athleticism. Yet, after only two months of retirement, he reversed his statement and shared that he would return for this upcoming season. Although the 2022 season still expects to see Brady on the field, he seems to certainly be making himself busy with plans after the season ends.
The roast is set to come after this upcoming season, and in addition to this project, the father of three also shared his career goals when he officially retires. Once he hangs up the jersey, he has a position as an NFL analyst with Fox Sports waiting for him.
Even off the field, the man can’t seem to shake significant career advancements! It is no wonder he is consistently referred to as the greatest of all time…
