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."
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
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.
