Tom Brady Roast Comic Says Robert Kraft Massage Jokes Were Off-Limits

Since Tom Brady‘s Netflix roast, viewers have speculated about how much the NFL star truly was upset over Jeff Ross‘ joke that alluded to Patriots owner Robert Kraft being charged with soliciting prostitution after an investigation into massage parlors in Florida.

Now, comedian Andrew Schulz, who participated in the roast, is saying that he believes that uncomfortable moment “was 100 percent real.”

“The reason why I think it’s real is because they told us no jokes about happy endings with Bob Kraft,” Schulz said on his Flagrant podcast.

Schulz explained that he had a joke about former Patriots wide receiver Randy Moss receiving a “happy ending” from Kraft. “They were like, ‘Tom asked us not to do anything with the massage shit,’” the comedian recalled. “I was like, ‘Alright, cool. The guy’s coming here for this thing. He’s not getting roasted.’”

He also claimed that Brady was “ready to shut the whole thing down” after the first comic to roast him onstage didn’t follow the rules.

“Most people would get caught up in that moment and go, ‘I don’t want to ruin it’ and [Brady] is like, ‘This shit don’t matter. What matters is I said to that guy that those jokes weren’t going to be made and he agreed to come and then you broke the rule,’” said Schulz.

Another topic that was off-limits at the roast, according to Schulz, was Brady’s children.

During Brady’s roast, Ross joked, “So Tom became a Patriot and moved up to New England, and on the first day of training camp, that scrawny rookie famously walked into the owner Robert Kraft‘s office and said, ‘I’m the best decision your organization has ever made. Would you like a massage?’”

Brady then got up from his seat and told Ross not to “say that shit again.”

The joke was reference to the 2019 incident in which Kraft was caught by police on video allegedly paying for sex at a massage parlor. He pleaded not guilty and the charges were dismissed after Florida appeals court barred the use of surveillance footage at trial.

Ross has since denied that Brady and Kraft were actually upset over his joke. On The Rich Eisen Show, he said there was “no way” that Brady was angry; instead, Brady was merely “showing his love for Kraft” with his response.

He added that Kraft “loved it” and they had a “great talk afterwards.”

When asked by The Hollywood Reporter if there were any jokes off-limits during the roast, Robbie Praw, Netflix’s vp, stand-up and comedy formats, said, “Not that I’m aware of.” He also said that the reaction from Brady and his camp to the roast was “positive,” as it was “very clear that it was a very special night, both in the football world and in the comedy world, and the mood after the show was pretty jubilant.”

Netflix has not yet responded to The Hollywood Reporter‘s request for comment.
