"Tom Brady Tied My Tie": Standup Comedian Hilariously Recounts Red Carpet Moment With NFL Legend

Not many can boast that Tom Brady assisted them in tying their tie. It’s a privilege reserved for a select few and stand-up comedian Alex Edelman happens to be on that list. During his recent appearance on “The Tonight Show” with Jimmy Fallon, Alex revealed how the football legend once charmingly stepped in to tie his tie, rescuing him from a potential embarrassment during a red carpet event.

On the show, Alex Edelman initially recalled the first time he and Jimmy Fallon met; Alex was just fifteen, working for the Boston Red Sox PR team. He arrived impeccably dressed in his Bar Mitzvah suit at the “Fever Pitch” premiere, assigned to interview people like Jimmy for the Red Sox Kids Nation Newsletter.

While Jimmy was intrigued by the sharp attire and adept tie-tying skills of the young teen, Alex revealed that it wasn’t his handiwork that made his appearance much more polished. It was the former Patriots QB, who, with just a glance, asked Alex why he wasn’t wearing a tie to such a grand event. Alex awkwardly revealed his unworn tie from his pocket, and Brady unhesitatingly offered his help.

I showed up on the red carpet with no tie, and Tom Brady was coming down the carpet, and he went, ‘Where’s your tie?’ I was too embarrassed to tell him. I didn’t know how to put one on, so I pulled it out of my pocket and Tom Brady was like, ‘Come here, man!’” narrated Alex.

Host Jimmy Fallon was surprised at the revelation that Tom Brady had casually tied a young teen’s tie on a red carpet. Meanwhile, Alex Edelman was utterly thrilled by the experience, expressing deep admiration for Brady.

Subsequently, Fanatics CEO Michael Rubin shared a video of the event on his Instagram page, capturing Brady mingling with thrilled fans.
