(ComedyCentral) Comedy Central is turning up the heat on pop icon Justin Bieber. The network announced that Bieber will be this year’s Roastee. The “Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber” (#BieberRoast) will tape in Los Angeles. Tape and airdate will be announced shortly, however it is rumored to be airing sometime in March, possibly March 7th.
“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,” said Kent Alterman, President, Content Development & Original Programming, Comedy Central.
Both TV personality Ryan Seacrest and Justin Bieber, himself, took to social media to confirm the news and we are certain that this one is going to be comedy gold. The amount of material is going to be endless, let’s just hope that Bieber and his merry band of “belibers” can handle the heat!

Comedy Central has not put together another Roast since James Franco’s back in 2013 so we are sure the comedians are rearing to go and we are almost certain Bieber will be the ideal roastee.
