The much anticipated Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber is set to screen on Tuesday March 31 at 8.30pm, first on The Comedy Channel, 'Express from the US.'
Hosted by Roast Master Kevin Hart, the Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber assembles a wide range of pop culture voices to hold one of the world's biggest teen idols over an open flame. Here is the trailer (with more fabulous clips below):
The 20-year-old pop star has accepted the challenge to be roasted with ease and in a happy coincidence for audiences the event will fall on his 21st birthday. The Roast will be "no holds barred" and everything and anything is fair game. Look out, Biebs.
Actor and comedian Kevin Hart (Real Husbands of Hollywood) has been named the Roast Master and will be joined by Roast regular Jeffrey Ross – who is fast becoming Bieber’s worst nightmare. If you've watched these 'roasts' before, you'll know they are as can't look away as they are utterly hilarious and hugely inappropriate - you LOL at the very bits which are bitingly scathing.
Comedian Hannibal Buress (Broad City), actor and stand up Chris D’Elia, rap royalty Snoop Dogg, actress Natasha Leggero, hip hop artist Ludacris, basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal, and controversial television personality Martha Stewart will also be stepping up onto the dais with Justin, with more names to be announced soon.
Bieber, who is no stranger to being mocked and regularly cops flack in mainstream media like Saturday Night Live and on social media, is the first musician to get a roast since Flavor Flav had verbal shots fired at him in 2007 (gosh, I need to hunt down a clip of this brilliance!). The most recent Comedy Central Roast was with James Franco who was skewered and burned in 2013.
Whether you’re a diehard Belieber or not his biggest fan, you won’t want to miss this 90 minute special premiering on Foxtel’s The Comedy Channel Tuesday March 31 at 8.30pm Express from the US. Follow and add to the social media conversation by using this hashtag: #BieberRoast
