If you thought the roast of Tom Brady would be mild and reserved, you thought wrong.

Seemingly nothing was off limits during The Greatest Roast of All Time: Tom Brady, which aired live on Netflix on Sunday. Whether it was the legendary quarterback’s former teammates in Randy Moss, Julian Edelman, Drew Bledsoe and Rob Gronkowski, his former coach in Bill Belichick, or a long list of comedians, the jokes were flying.

Kevin Hart hosted, but it was Belichick who helped kick off the show by telling Bledsoe that it was once again Brady’s time to shine.

There were jokes about Spygate, deflated footballs, trainer Alex Guerrero, Belichick’s job status, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, cryptocurrency, Brady losing to Eli Manning in the Super Bowl multiple times and much more.

And there was no shortage of reactions from those who watched:

Hart, Ben Affleck, Nikki Glaser, Jeff Ross, Will Ferrell, Sam Jay and other actors and comedians expectedly delivered one-liners about Brady and the other athletes. Ferrell even arrived as his famous character Ron Burgundy and told Belichick, “it was Tom, it was never you” when talking about the Patriots’ success.

But the athletes also drew plenty of laughs with Edelman and Gronkowski holding nothing back and Bledsoe telling Brady, “I’m really glad that you enjoyed all this amazing success with the team I built” while also telling Belichick, “at least when I got fired somebody else wanted me.”

Then there was Moss, who didn’t ring a ring with the Patriots. His time in New England also came outside of the Spygate and deflated football controversies, which had him asking Brady, “why didn’t we cheat when I was there?”

Brady was the target of most of the roasts, but Gronkowski didn’t escape some of the jokes.

The most notable one came from Belichick himself, who played off his “do your job” slogan by telling Gronkowski, “stop doing your job” as a Fox studio analyst.

Belichick had the room cracking up but was also part of arguably the most notable moment of the evening when Hart convinced the legendary coach to take a shot with Kraft in an effort to quell any bad blood.

That wasn’t the only surprise of the show, as Peyton Manning was the final roaster who landed a number of amusing jokes before introducing Brady as a three-time Super Bowl loser.

But it all built toward Brady’s rebuttal, and the greatest of all time once again delivered.

Whether it was him telling Roger Goodell the NFL should have just given him the $20 million it used to investigate the deflated football scandal or roasting all of his rival fanbases and Belichick, Brady seemed to be in his element:

It was quite the mic drop from Brady, who once again thrived under the spotlight.
