Justin Bieber Soon to Be ‘Roasted’ in ‘Comedy Central’ Special
After leading a rather controversial year last 2014, Justin Bieber will soon be joining those who have been “roasted” by “Comedy Central,” as per an announcement released via Twitter on Tuesday, Jan. 21, 2015.
On Tuesday, Ryan Seacrest posted on Twitter the news of Bieber soon to be having his “roasting” special in Comedy Central. According to his tweet, Bieber’s special is scheduled on an unmentioned date sometime in March 2015, perhaps just in time for Bieber’s 21st birthday.
In a statement released by Kent Alterman, President of Comedy Central’s Content Development & Original Programming, Bieber has been asking them for years now to “roast” him, and they just told him off by saying that he needs to give them more source material first to use for the show. And apparently, Bieber took their words to heart and has certainly been doing just that.
Even though it hasn’t been determined yet as to what will Bieber’s special be veering on soon, there’s hardly any question that Bieber has been giving them rather interesting source material as of late. There’s news of him being arrested and his skateboarding in Times Square. And let’s not forget his most recent controversies like his Calvin Klein photos that were initially rumored to be edited, and of course, his current love life in connection to Selena Gomez and Hailey Baldwin.
Bieber, on the other hand, tweeted, “For years I have wanted Comedy Central to roast me. They said only if I provided them w/ more material so for a year now I have worked hard.” In another tweet, Bieber thanked Seacrest and “Comedy Central” for the announcement of his upcoming special.
Entitled “Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber,” the special will be taped in Los Angeles. As of the moment, the airdate and time are still undetermined.
