When we’re talking about entertainment, nothing beats a good joke on somebody, especially if the other person is more than willing to take it all in. Take for example, Justin Bieber, who just got his own bout of roasting in Comedy Central’s special, along with a star-studded audience.
On Saturday, March 14, Justin Bieber finally got his birthday wish belatedly granted as he took his seat for the taping of ‘The Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber’. And apparently, the night may have been filled with direct jabs at Bieber, but it was also filled with heartfelt laughs from the roasters and the audience.
All ready to grill him that night was Roast Master Kevin Hart, who started the night off with “Tonight, we are gonna do what parents and the legal system should have done a long time — give the boy an ass-whoopin’ he deserves.”
Joining him to the grill were his fellow roasters: Chris D’Elia, Dave Chappelle, Hannibal Buress, Ludacris, Martha Stewart, Natasha Leggero, Snoop Dogg, and Shaquille O’Neal. Also joining in on the fun was Will Ferrell, who played as the night’s anchor man in his Ron Burgundy outfit. Veteran roaster Jeffrey Ross even disguised himself as the pope.
As if the roaster panel isn’t star-studded enough yet, the audience was also quite a stunning bunch. This included celebrity couple Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, Ashley Benson, Carly Rae Jepsen. Sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner were also among the audience, opting to sit in the front row to show their support to family friend Bieber, though they probably didn’t expect (or maybe they already did) to be included in the roasting as well.
In conclusion of the night, Bieber commented on how brutal the panel were and added, “This was supposed to be a birthday present. When people ask me what I got for my 21st birthday, I’ll tell them I got my d–k kicked in. I should have known.” But on a more serious note, he also apologized of his past behavior and promised to be a better man. He also said, “Someone close to me once said ‘How you rise from a fall is how you are truly defined as a man.’”
