The Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber—which taped Saturday, but airs March 30 at 10 p.m.—was a relentlessly savage three-odd hours for the Canadian pop star. The roasters skewered the 21-year-old Bieber on nearly every indiscretion of his life. Before the disses were lobbed, some of the roasters and stars in attendance chatted with EW on the white carpet at Sony Pictures Studios in Los Angeles. Here are the 10 best things we heard during pre-show festivities.

EW: What was the stupidest thing you did as a teenager?

Blake Anderson, Workaholics: Musicals in high school. I’m not proud of it.

Natasha Leggero, roaster: I did a lot of climbing out of my window and having sex with men four years older than me. That’s pretty bad, right?

Jillian Bell, Workaholics and Idiotsitter: When I was younger, I was playing Mario Bros. with my sister, and she pushed me and said, “You have to be Luigi.” So I called the cops. [Charlotte Newhouse, Idiotsitter: What did you report?Being an asshole.

Would you ever be the subject of a roast?

Snoop Dogg, rapper and roaster: You’d have to give me a whoooole lot of money, and I gotta be at the end of my career.

Anderson: I wouldn’t mind. I think I know what people would say: hair stuff, small penis stuff, probably—and I’ve heard ’em all. I’m bulletproof.

Riki Lindhome, Garfunkel and Oates: I don’t think so. I’m too sensitive. I don’t want to know what people think of me, good or bad—so I guess it would just be bad. I don’t think I’m strong enough. I might like cry.

What’s your favorite Bieber song?

Kevin Hart, roast master: “Baby, Baby,” I’ll go that one. The other one, he has another one that’s not appropriate. Yeah, it’s “Hold On Tight.”

Kyle Kinane, comic: “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” is a good one. I mean, “Sympathy for the Devil” is good: It starts off with the bongos, you don’t know where it’s going, it gets dark. We’re still talking about Rolling Stones, right?

What’s the best/funniest insult someone’s said to you?

Ricky Velez, The Nightly Show: I got told today I look like a villain [James] Bond would have to kill.

Did you know Bieber was arrested for reportedly crashing his ATV into a minivan?

Kinane [wearing a “Belieber” shirt with cutoff sleeves]: He crashed into a minivan? Kids are in those! I don’t think I support being here now.
