Comedy Central to Roast Justin Bieber, Start Writing Your TweetsKevin Fitzpatrick |
‘SNL’ took perfect potshots at Justin Bieber over the weekend with Kate McKinnon’s latest spot-on impression, and while the world at large isn’t lacking for reasons to roast the Biebs, Comedy Central will make it a global pastime. Bieber has officially been chosen as the subject of Comedy Central’s next roast, and half of Hollywood is already lining up.
The network announced the “Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber” (#BieberRoast) to tape in Los Angeles via press release, though an actual airdate or host for the special has yet to be confirmed. At the very least Comedy Central press seemed optimistic about the opportunity:
Justin has been asking us for a few years to roast him, and we just kept telling him to go create more source material first. We’re thrilled he listened.
And from the Biebs himself:
We’d love to see Kate McKinnon hosting the roast as Bieber himself, or at least putting in an appearance as such, but what say you? Will Comedy Central’s roast of Justin Bieber last for days on end, to give the pop-culture mega star his due? Where do we even start?
