"To quote my good friend, Marshawn Lynch ... 'I'm just here so I won't get fined,'" said Brady in a statement.

The laughs are already roaring in, I see. Expect an hour's worth of this.

I'll bet if we wait long enough, he'll try to buy Twitter.

Is Netflix tanking for draft picks at this point?

I get how big a deal Brady is, but I've never seen any indication that he has the charisma needed to be on TV after playing, unlike Peyton's aw shucks persona or A A Ron's surprisingly good comedic timing.

/not offered as a defense of Peyton or A A Ron's character.

Yeah, I'm getting more Montana/Brees vibes than Romo.

Brady or Netflix?

We pitched the idea to everyone, but unfortunately, Brady picked up the option and will be Executive Producing and Starring in "So, You Wann Get Rid of This Narcissistic Weirdo?"

I like the Comedy Central Roasts, for the most part (Dennis Leary? Gene Simmons? Why?). So I tuned in to the Netflix Jonas Brothers roast. It. Was. Painful. A slooowwww death. At least the 20 minutes I was able to stand. Not funny. I hope they can get Jeselnik, Glaser and/or Ross.

Right.  The bar for a proper roast is set in too many peoples' minds because there have been so many recently.  They cross lines of subject amd language that I don't think Brady would allow.  If it's going to be good, there can't be any restrictions and they need smart, merciless comedians.

God damn what a pathetic society this is.

I hope he at least gets the good living roasters on. Greg Giraldo would have slaughtered him.

I invite him to the North Shore of Pittsburgh to have random locals walk by and roast him.  And by locals, I mean most of Western PA.  He would hear the word 'asshole' pretty much all the times.

I'd really love to see the Dean Martin Roasts from back in the day when the comedians had actual talent, but I'm not paying $300 for a DVD set (maybe the price has come down somewhat from that these days).

EyeballKid: Is Netflix tanking for draft picks at this point?


This made me laugh more than a Brady roast could ever manage, most likely.

Still, I respect anyone who subjects themselves to a roast.
 
2022-05-18 6:03:51 PM  
The roast will be the first in a series of new Netflix specials titled Greatest Roasts of All Time: GROAT, with the streamer announcing on Tuesday that the first in the GROAT specials will be the roast of the "greatest football player of all time."

Two ways to play this to make it actually funny:

1. Pull the bait and switch and it actually end up being a roast of someone like Jerry Rice, Barry Sanders or Lawrence Taylor.

2. It's Brady, but all the roasters are current NFL defensive backs and Brady just sits there staring at them the entire time with a notepad and literal bulletin board behind him.

You know what? Celebrity roasts used to be clever and funny, but also somewhat rare. A large part of the charm was that they were all friends. Then Comedy Central turned them into unfunny swear-fests. Random "Celebrities" roasted by random comedians.  I'm not saying some good comedy didn't come out of the later versions but they'll never equal the originals.

It will be a while, anyway.

To me, as somebody who knows him well it would be way funnier TO ME (I understand what I like isn't great for the mainstream) if they got guys like Max Kellerman, Chris Simms, and that prick Jim Gray to be on the show.

I wouldn't mind seeing Artie Lange, Jim Norton, Jeff Ross, and Jim Florentine on the dias.

Bleh, anyone who pines for the days of the old roasts because they think they're funny and thinks the current ones aren't may as well have "I'm old" printed across their foreheads. I'll grant there's a certain charm to the old roasts, because they're usually friends with the roastee. But joke-for-joke the modern Comedy Central roasts kill the old ones even if they're doing it with no idea who each other are. It's like comparing Airplane to the Bowery Boys

That being said, these ones are no guarantee to be good because who knows who they'll get as roasters/writers

I don't pine for the old ones.  Just the unforced format. Do the big celebrities.  Have their friends do it. They had writers back then too.


Also this: As usual, you're wrong.

TFA does say that Jeff Ross is one of the Executive Producers, so I'd hope that the roasts have at least some edge to them.  But Brady isn't known for his sense of humor or his edginess, so I can imagine that a lot of the potential will be neutered out before the first episode makes it to the screen.

It's the conservative mindset. "Things used to be the way I liked them and now they're not."

Then their friends were terrible writers compared to the Comedy Central roast writers. Just because Sinatra got roasted doesn't mean it was funny.

If anyone wants to judge for themselves all of these roasts are available on Youtube and/or one of the various streaming services. It's like comparing 1970s SNL to current day SNL. SNL now is so much funnier, but old-heads will swear 1970s is better, you can even watch those to compare now too! You don't even have to take my word for it.

And also, c'mon. You're going to compare your "right about things" record to mine? You thought Covid was no big deal, and other dumbass conservative talking points things. You're wrong about more things before 9am than most people are wrong about all day. The very old format of that joke should speak to you being the conservative dumbass you are

Brady has the charisma of a wooden clothespin.
