Mile High Morning: Peyton Manning makes surprise appearance on 'The Roast of Tom Brady'


The Lead

"The Roast of Tom Brady" premiered live on Netflix on Sunday, and a slew of Brady's most famous teammates and friends took the stage to roast the future Hall of Famer.

In addition to former teammates like Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski being in attendance, there were several surprise guests — including former Patriots head coach Bill Belichick — throughout the three-hour event.

The biggest surprise, though, may have come near the end of the show when former Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning appeared from backstage to deliver the final celebrity roast of Brady.

Manning's set included jokes about Gronkowski, Belichick and, of course, Brady.

"It is great to be here with a bunch of people sitting around, talking smack about Tom Brady," Manning joked. "Or as we call that in the Manning family, Thanksgiving."

Manning spent most of his set on a series of jokes about the similarities and differences between them, and he acknowledged Brady's edge in Lombardi Trophies.

"Of course we all know Tom has five more Super Bowl rings than I do," Manning said. "He also has more touchdowns than I do. More passing yards. More retirements. More fake hair. More TB12 bankruptcies."

Manning ended his five-minute set with a reminder that "the last time Tom Brady had to wait this long to get on stage, it was the 2000 NFL Draft."

Even as Manning introduced Brady for his own rebuttal, Manning got in one more jab.

"He is a three-time Super Bowl loser," Manning said. "Please welcome, Tom Brady."

To watch Manning's full roast, head to the 2:42:26 mark of "The Roast of Tom Brady" on Netflix.
