“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 Kent Alterman, President, Content Development & Original Programming, Comedy Central.

This announcement comes on the heels of the Biebs being the butt of the joke on a popular SNL sketch this past weekend. In that sketch cast member, Kate McKinnon poked fun at his widely talked about recent Calvin Klein ads. Apparently JB can take a joke too!  He took to Twitter to express his excitement about being the target of the latest roast while also poking fun at himself.
