Nikki Glaser says it’s ‘impossible’ Tom Brady didn’t consider roast’s effect on family: He did ‘his research’




Nikki Glaser believes Tom Brady “knew exactly what he was getting into” when he signed up for a roast.

After acknowledging on Wednesday’s “Today With Hoda & Jenna” that he “maybe didn’t consider the backlash from his family and how it would affect them,” Glaser cast doubt on the possibility.

“I also think Tom Brady does not do anything without doing his research and knowing exactly what he’s getting into,” Glaser, 39, claimed.

“It’s impossible to me that he didn’t consider what could have happened because there’s roast footage out there that you can watch and go, ‘They’re gonna go this hard,'” the comedian added.

However, she noted, “There’s a part of me that thinks that Tom Brady, especially given his career and how much people love him, no one’s ever said a bad thing to him in the past 30 years, so he doesn’t know what anyone’s capable of going there.”

The “FBoy Island” host shared her “sense that maybe it was a little more than he had planned for.”

Brady, 46, said as much when he told “Pivot” podcast listeners on Tuesday that he wouldn’t repeat “The Roast of Tom Brady.”

The self-proclaimed “naive” athlete explained, “I wouldn’t do that again because of the way that affected actually the people that I care about the most in the world.”

While Glaser previously revealed to Howard Stern that jokes about Brady’s kids were considered “off limits” — with her even cutting a joke about the retired quarterback kissing his eldest child — the little ones did come up during the live event on May 5.

“[Your ex-wife], Gisele [Bündchen], said, ‘You retire or we’re done,'” Kevin Hart alleged in the show’s opening set. “But when you’ve got a chance to go 8-9 and all it will cost you is your wife and kids, you’ve got to do what the f–k you’ve got to do. … F–k them kids!”

Hart, Glaser and more comedians also poked fun at Bündchen dating her jiu-jitsu instructor, Joaquim Valente, after her 2022 divorce from Brady.

The supermodel, 43, felt “deeply disappointed” by the “irresponsible” wisecracks, a source shared with People last week.

Brady and the former Victoria’s Secret Angel share son Benjamin, 14, and daughter Vivian, 11.

The NFL legend is also the father of son Jack, 16, with his ex Bridget Moynahan — and their 2006 breakup, which happened amid her pregnancy, came up during the roast.

Although the “Blue Bloods” actress, 53, has not responded to the quips directly, she did re-post cryptic Instagram quotes about “loyalty” and being “kind.”
