It depends on how you see the two parts connecting. They are two sentences that work together and they can be bridged in different ways:

It's sad (that) all these older guys (are) partying way past their prime.
What is sad is all these older guys (who are) partying way past their prime.

BTW, 'way' here means 'long' (time)

I'm not exactly sure what your question is looking for, but does this help?
"It's sad, isn't it? All these older guys partying way past their
prime."


so what does it mean?I don't get it?

a.It's sad (that) all these older guys (are) partying way past their prime.
b.What is sad is all these older guys (who are) partying way past their prime.

I don't know that it's sad, but somebody thinks it is. Maybe he wishes he were the one doing the partying.

There's no real difference between your two sentences- both acknowledge that something is sad and the thing is men who a partying at an age where they should have settled down and grown up. ;-)
