Justin Bieber Will be Roasted by Comedy Central This Spring

Justin Bieber Comedy Central Roast

Comedy Central took over the time-honored tradition of the Roast in the early-to-mid-2000s, taking such high-profile names as Denis Leary, Pam Anderson, Bob Sagat, David Hasselhoff, Joan Rivers, Flavor Flav, Donald Trump, Roseanne Barr, James Franco and Charlie Sheen down a peg or two.

Roasts are that wonderful contradiction where a mix of someone's close friends, Hollywood people they've never met, and/or a Comedy Central semi-famous comedic talent all try their best to talk bad about the guest of honor and each other, before the guest of honor gets to fire back in his/her end monologue. It's usually done for charity, leaves lasting emotional scars covered by laughs, and can reveal serious comedic weak links who either can't deliver, or can't take what gets thrown back it them. It's awkward, mortifying and hilarious to watch all at once - and now, it's Justin Bieber's turn in the hot seat.

Comedy Central reports that Bieber is going to be roasted in March - news which was confirmed in celebrity tweets from both Ryan Seacrest and "The Beebs" himself.
