Tom Brady discussed many avenues the former NFL QB may run across in retirement. Brady decided to call it quits for a second time after the 2022-23 season. One of the avenues Brady has mentioned in the past was trying stand-up comedy. That news caught the attention of many in the comedy realm. As stand-up isn't as easily done as one might see it to be. However, one comedy podcast decided to take Brady's stand-up gig to a whole other level.

Dudesy is the first podcast run entirely by AI. The show's hosts, Chad Kultgen and "Freewill" Will Sasso, discuss the world of artificial intelligence in the most unserious of ways. Recently, the show created an entire 1-hour comedy special with Tom Brady. The special was made by AI but featured a voice similar to Brady's. When the special dropped on the podcast's Patreon channel, word began spreading quickly on the AI impression of Brady. The special became so popular that Brady himself even learned about it.

Tom Brady Doesn't Find AI Stand-Up Funny

However, Brady didn't see the humor in the created special. Brady's legal team sent a cease and desist letter to the podcast's hosts. But the hosts don't really see the harm in the special. However, they have complied with Brady's legal team and have removed the special from their content pages. However, the hosts mentioned that this incident has not stopped them from potentially having other AI-generated content featuring celebrities and public figures.

Maybe Brady was jealous over such a great comedy special that he didn't create. However, that may not be the biggest issue here. AI is continuing to break down walls on what it is capable of. This Tom Brady comedy special is just the latest example. The show has become larger than ever thought possible with the Brady AI special. However, for now, the show may want to stick to 'Stone Cold Steven Austin Reading Will Sasso's Childhood Diary.' At least, that's what one fan believes. It's me. I'm the fan. Do you believe that Brady was right in taking legal action against the show? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section. For the latest in AI and sports, keep it right here with HNHH.
