Is Tom Brady looking to be the next Seinfeld?
According to RadarOnline.com, the seven-time Super Bowl champion quarterback is planning a career in stand-up comedy, but his inner circle is trying to talk him out of it. A source told RadarOnline.com that “Tom was a terrific quarterback, but he needs to toss this idea before it’s too late.”
I can’t imagine this is true, but the report comes as Tom Brady announced that he will start his job at Fox Sports in the fall of 2024 despite announcing his retirement from the NFL in February.
Tom Brady has no stand-up comedy experience, but he did star in the sports-comedy movie 80 for Brady with Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Sally Field and Rita Moreno. Some say when Fonda, Tomlin and Moreno began showing praise to Brady, it gave him the confidence to make the jump into comedy.
“The ladies were super nice to him and he did a nice job reading professionally written material in a small part — but stand-up comedy is a whole different league! Friends say “he does a great impersonation of former teammate Rob Gronkowski — and his over-the-top Boston accent is hilarious.”
I swear, if I’m working with Tom Brady at any comedy club, and he’s making more than me, I’ll take him right down!
He spoke to FS1 host Colin Cowherd about the Fox Sports job, he said he wanted to be 100% prepared before getting in the booth. “Decompression’s important,” Brady said. “You’re on this crazy treadmill/hamster wheel loving it at the same time. It’s a daily fight… For me, I want to be great at what I do. “Talking last week to the people at Fox Sports and the leadership there, they’re going to allow me to start my Fox opportunity in the fall of 2024.”
Tom Brady reportedly signed a 10-year contract with Fox that is worth as much as $375 million.
WHY WOULD HE WANT TO BE AN OPENING ACT AT THE CHUCKLE HUT??!!
