We can't wait for Comedy Central to roast Justin Bieber!

2015-01-21 13:04

Los Angeles — Comedy Central says Justin Bieber will be the victim of its next roast.

The channel said on Tuesday that the pop star will face the music at a taping in Los Angeles on a still-unannounced air date.

In a posting on his Twitter account, Bieber said he's long wanted to be roasted but was told by Comedy Central that he needed to provide more material — and he's worked hard to do that, he said.

Among events that appear ripe for mockery: the egging of a neighbour’s house and the monkey he left in Germany.

Last weekend, Saturday Night Live took on his new Calvin Klein ad, with SNL cast member Kate McKinnon strutting as the underwear-clad, tattooed Bieber.

James Franco was the subject of the last Comedy Central roast.
