Tom Brady’s inner circle is apparently trying to talk him out of an attempt to launch a career in stand-up comedy to win back ex-wife Gisele Bundchen.
According to RadarOnline, the recently-retired quarterback wants to try his hand as a comic in a last-ditch attempt to reunite with his supermodel ex. They divorced last October following 13 years of marriage – a move that coincided with Brady’s decision to unretire and play one more season in the NFL.
But Brady’s people are not encouraging his new career path. A source is quoted by Radar as saying: ‘Tom was a terrific quarterback, but he needs to toss this idea before it’s too late. As a comic — he’s strictly a water boy.’
That said, there were some compliments for the 45-year-old’s sense of humor.
‘He does a great impersonation of former teammate Rob Gronkowski and his over-the-top Boston accent is hilarious,’ the source also told Radar.

Brady and Bundchen were married for 13 years but Brady’s retirement u-turn last year was reportedly a factor in her decision that their marriage had come to an end

Brady has also hit pause on the blockbuster 10-year, $375million deal waiting for him at Fox Sports to be an analyst during the NFL season now he has retired.
He won’t start that role until 2024, saying he needed to decompress from football but Radar claims it’s actually because he wants Bundchen back.
‘The biggest obstacle between them was Gisele’s complaints about Tom putting football before family, so he decided to show her he’s willing to focus on them before taking the job at FOX,’ an insider is quoted as saying to Radar. ‘His only goal right now is to get his family back.’
The night before Brady confirmed his retirement, he was on the red carpet in Los Angeles for the premiere of his ’80 for Brady’ film – a comedy – alongside Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and Rita Moreno.
‘The ladies were super nice to him and he did a nice job reading professionally written material in a small part — but he’ll be playing in a whole different league if he takes up the stand-up stage,’ Radar quoted an insider.
Brady announced his retirement from football the next morning and insisted that he is not going to change his mind this time around.
‘I’m retiring, for good,’ Brady said in a video on social media on February 1. ‘I know the process was a pretty big deal last time so when I woke up this morning I figured I’d just press record and let you guys know first.

The next day Brady posted his emotional retirement video but joked to his fans that ‘You only get one super emotional retirement essay and I used mine up last year’
In recent weeks, the 42-year-old Bundchen was seen relaunching her modelling career
‘It won’t be long-winded. You only get one super emotional retirement essay and I used mine up last year.’
The 42-year-old Bundchen replied to Brady’s video saying: ‘Wishing you only wonderful things in this new chapter of your life.’
While he’s considered a friendly figure away from football, humor has never been something massively associated with Brady, aside from his film. He has always approached sport with an intense and laser-sharp focus and at times, his temper has gotten the better of him.
Last year, he was filmed ranting at his Tampa Bay Buccaneers teammates in a meltdown midway through a game against the New Orleans Saints. He apparently broke two tablets in his moment of fury and admitted on his Let’s Go! podcast that he was ‘pretty p***ed’.
But it seemed to have the desired impact – the Bucs beat the Saints 20-10. Yet even in the more relaxed setting of Let’s Go!, Brady has never struck listeners as a comedian.
In the weeks that have followed his retirement announcement, Brady has appeared to spend his time mostly with his children.
He has two with Gisele – 13-year-old Benjamin and 10-year-old Vivian, who he has also been seen watching have horse riding lessons.
Brady’s last game in football was on January 16 when the Bucs lost to the Dallas Cowboys
But Brady left football as the best quarterback the game has had – with Super Bowl victories
Brady also has another son, 15-year-old Jack, from his previous relationship with actress and model Bridget Moynahan.
Brady’s Bucs narrowly made the playoffs in his final season before being beaten 31-14 by the Dallas Cowboys on January 16 – his final ever game.
He retires with a reputation as the best quarterback to ever play in the NFL and has seven Super Bowl titles to his name.
Bundchen, meanwhile, has relaunched her modelling career and was recently seen partying at the Rio carnival.
