Tom Brady explains why he wouldn't do another Netflix roast

Former NFL player and current entrepreneur Tom Brady recently took to the chair to be roasted at the Netflix Is a Joke comedy festival. However, it looks as though Brady has some regrets about agreeing to it in the first place.

Brady recently revealed that taking part in the event had “affected my kids” and that he “wouldn’t do that again” if he were ever asked. Appearing on The Pivot Podcast, Brady opened up on the Netflix show and said that he regrets it in hindsight.

“I loved when the jokes were about me, I thought they were so fun,” Brady admitted. “[But] I didn’t like the way it affected my kids… [There’s a] bittersweet aspect of when you do something that you think is one way.|

He added, “Then all of a sudden you realise: ‘I wouldn’t do that again, because of the way it affected the actual people who I care about most in the world.’”

The former NFL star had pointed out the fact that he is a big fan of comedy, particularly the work of roast comedian Jeff Ross, but before actually taking part in the Netflix roast, he was “unable to see the full picture at the time”.

The result was that Brady realised that he wanted to become a “better parent”. He noted, “Sometimes you’re naive and you don’t know, or you get a little like, ‘Ah, shit’. So, I think it’s a good lesson for me as a parent.”

Many other celebrities and entertainment figures attended the roast, including Kevin Hart, Nikki Glaser and Tom Segura. As is often the case with a roast, Brady wasn’t the other person to be on the receiving end of the jokes.

Most importantly, for Brady, was that people enjoyed the event. “I’m happy everyone who was there had a lot of fun,” he said. “If we’re not laughing about things, we’re crying. We should have more fun.”

One person who perhaps didn’t have a good time, though, was Kim Kardashian, who was booed repeatedly as she took to the stage. In fact, Netflix proceeded to edit out the booing from the version of the show that is currently streaming on the service.
