Justin Bieber Gets Comedy Central Roast

Justin Bieber has been the butt of many jokes, and now the pop superstar will get his very own roast on Comedy Central.

The 20-year-old singer will be roasted by some of the funniest comedians during a special that will tape on March 7, reports Ryan Seacrest.

“Justin has been asking us for years to roast him,” says the network, “so we kept telling him to create some more material and we’re thrilled he listened.”

According to TMZ, the roast was Bieber’s idea. He reportedly called Comedy Central to say he wanted the roast to be a celebration to coincide with his 21st birthday on March 1.

Just this weekend, Bieber was the subject of a “Saturday Night Live” skit starring Kate McKinnon, who spoofed his Calvin Klein underwear ad campaign. Bieber was a good sport about the whole thing, tweeting, “well played. Lol.”
