Will Ferrell as Ron Burgundy, Kim Kardashian booed at Tom Brady Roast

Actor Will Ferrell, dressed as his iconic Ron Burgundy character from “Anchorman,” had viewers and attendees laughing at Netflix’s live event in Los Angeles where Tom Brady was roasted.

During the event, which was filled with jokes about Brady’s ex-wife Gisele Bundchen and his “golden skin,” Ferrell added to the comedic banter. He humorously took aim at Brady’s NFL counterpart Eli Manning, the former New York Giants quarterback, and joked, “You don’t see Eli Manning here tonight, do you?” That’s because Tom is afraid of Eli Manning.’ Ferrell then led the crowd in singing, “Eli Manning made Tom Brady his ‘bitch,’” which drew a mix of boos and enthusiastic participation.

Ferrell didn’t hesitate to poke fun at Brady’s former Patriots coach, Bill Belichick, with comments like, “Hey Bill, wherever you are, just know it was Tom and not you,” and a playful nod to Belichick’s current job status. “Bill, since you’re currently unemployed, good luck with ZipRecruiter.”

Later, Ferrell introduced Belichick, who joined in to roast his star QB and teammates on stage.

Then later in the evening it was Ben Affleck’s turn to roast the “GOAT”.

The Oscar winner, known for his love of Dunkin’ Donuts iced coffee and the New England Patriots, humorously balanced his affection while poking fun at his favorite NFL quarterback.

As he walked onto the stage to a rapturous standing ovation from the audience, Affleck began, “I’m just in time. This is quite rude of you.’

Affleck’s deep affection for the Boston Red Sox, New England Patriots and Dunkin’ Donuts iced coffee shops (originating near his hometown of Quincy, Massachusetts) is well known. Now retired and hailed as one of football’s greatest players, Brady has appeared in Dunkin’ commercials alongside Affleck and his good friend, Oscar winner Matt Damon.

Affleck put a spotlight on Patriots fandom, which has been critical of decisions made during Brady’s career and the team’s franchise. ‘You’re not fans. You are a bitch.”

While not overflowing with humor, Affleck threw some funny, cutting jokes at Coach Belichick: “I have season tickets. You work for me, asshole.”

Host Kevin Hart took the stage after Affleck said, “Another piece of white boy humor,” while Roastmaster Jeff Ross added, “This is the first time I wish Netflix had commercials.”

A clear nod to a robust, three-hour ceremony with many awkward moments.

Hart then introduced surprise roaster Peyton Manning.
