Comedy Central Will Roast Justin Bieber

Big boy Justin Bieber will get his very own Comedy Central roast in March. Ryan Seacrest was the first to tweet the news on Tuesday, and Comedy Central confirmed.

The “Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber” will tape in Los Angeles, though a specific date has yet to be announced. “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,” Kent Alterman, the network's President of Content Development & Original Programming, said in a statement.

We're guessing his recent Calvin Klein underwear ad controversy and the subsequent "SNL" parody -- "my peepee's in there" -- gave the network some more incentive to skewer le petit Canadien.
