On the heels of ‘Saturday Night Live’ shredding the Biebs to pieces, and having a nation laugh at him, not with him, Comedy Central has made it official that they’ll be holding a roast for Justin Bieber this coming March.
Well, it’s about damn time. The most insufferable person in Hollywood is going to get served up a piping hot plate of Humble Pie by Roast Master Jeffrey Ross. The self-styled musician who’s more known for wearing pants that look like adult diapers than making actual music is easily the most eligible candidate for a Roast, as his ego has ballooned to a size never before seen in a Canadian citizen.
Ryan Seacrest confirmed the Roast on his Twitter, and afterwards The Beaver himself corroborated the news:
Rolling Stone reports the event will take place on March 7th:
The 20-year-old singer has reportedly wanted to be the butt of the joke for years, according to a source at Comedy Central, who told Ryan Seacrest’s website: “Justin has been asking us for years to roast him, so we kept telling him to create some more material and we’re thrilled he listened.”
As far as targets go, Bieber’s an easy one. The singer’s antics have made for plenty of comedic fodder over the years, and just this past weekend his ridiculous Calvin Klein ad campaign was parodied throughout Saturday Night Live. Donning a pair of tiny tighty whities, Kate McKinnon offered up an outrageous impersonation of the singer, mugging for the camera one instant then running around, yelling and trying to pants Cecily Strong the next. Luckily, Bieber’s got a sense of humor, tweeting afterwards, “@nbcsnl well played. Lol.”
The comedians taking part in the Bieber roast will be able to cull material from any number of Bieber-related incidents: From the underage drinking and drag racing to egging his neighbor’s house and peeing in a restaurant mop bucket. The monkey he abandoned in Germany will also presumably come up several times.
I had the great fortune of attending one of these Comedy Central Roasts a few years ago when Donald Trump announced his intention to run for President of the USA, and I have to say that I don’t believe Justin Beiber has the stones to take the beating he’s going to receive on stage, or the talent around him to write the jokes he’ll need when it’s his turn to take the podium.
There’s literally no foreseeable outcome that doesn’t involve Justin Bieber crying on stage in front of the world, or running off stage before he poops his saggy pants in shame.
There’s just SO MUCH FODDER with which the Roasters can tear this pissant apart, just look at last weekend’s SNL skit that’s already been watched 3.4 MILLION times:
So, bros, mark your calendars: March 7th is the day that Justin Bieber finally takes the verbal beating he deserves.
