On the heels of Justin Bieber’s unofficial roasting at the hands of the team at “Saturday Night Live” last weekend, we get word that Comedy Central will soon turn up the heat on the often-controversial pop superstar.
The network announced Tuesday that Bieber will be its annual roastee. “The Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber” will be taped in Los Angeles. Both the taping and airdate will be announced shortly.
“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 the cable channel’s Kent Alterman — clearly with tongue in cheek.
