Bieber fever is rampant in the comedy world. First Saturday Night Live brilliantly spoofs Justin Bieber's Calvin Klein ads, and now Comedy Central has made him their next Roastee.

The Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber will be taped in Los Angeles and Kent Alterman, President of Content Development & Original Programming at Comedy Central, says the "Baby" singer was asking for it.

"Justin has been asking us for a few years to roast him," Altman reveals of the 20-year-old pop star, "and we just kept telling him to go create more source material first. We’re thrilled he listened."

Bieber -- who turns 21 on March 1 -- echoed those same sentiments on Twitter, writing: "Finally after all that hard work for my 21st bday it's happening."

The cable network's last roast was for James Franco and was headed up by his pal and co-star of The Interview, Seth Rogen. Jonah Hill, Bill Hader, Nick Kroll and Sarah Silverman were also among the stars to make jokes at the eccentric actor's expense.
