In January, Comedy Central announced Bieber would be their next target—and Bieber proved to be a good sport: “For years I have wanted Comedy Central to roast me,” he wrote on Twitter. “They said only if I provided them w/ more material so for a year now I have worked hard.”
Work hard, he did: Bieber was arrested multiple times in 2014 for charges ranging from vandalism to assault, and peaked (from a comedy standpoint, at least) in a deposition that was released in March.
Bieber joins a long list of celebrities who have been roasted, including James Franco, Charlie Sheen, and Donald Trump. Comedian Kevin Hart will be the evening’s roast master.
