What’s Worth Watching: Justin Bieber Gets Roasted
The Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber (Monday, March 30, 10/9c, Comedy Central)
They grow up so fast nowadays. A sentiment that even applies to Justin Bieber, the notorious bad-boy imp of pop, who turned 21 earlier this month. He has certainly earned the profanely hilarious rite of passage known as a Comedy Central roast, where nothing and no one is sacred. Kevin Hart is roastmaster for the Bieber-bashing, presiding over a typically eclectic panel that ranges from Martha Stewart to Snoop Dogg (whose special brownie recipe comes in for high praise from the domestic goddess).
Also on hand: cutting-edge comic Hannibal Buress (who’ll soon be getting his own Comedy Central series), Shaquille O’Neal, Ludacris, Natasha Leggero, Chris D’Elia, and the inevitable Jeffrey Ross, who likens Bieber (in suit and slicked-back hair) to “the King Joffrey of pop.” In which case the Bieb had better watch what refreshments they set in front of him.
