Justin Bieber To Be Roasted On Comedy Central; We Hope Jim Norton Is There


Yes! It’s true! The Biebs will be officially featured as the next guest on a Comedy Central Roast. As strange as it is, the newest Calvin Klein model will now be joining the ranks amongst some iconic members of pop culture, including Bob Saget, Pamela Anderson, William Shatner, Flavor Flav, Joan Rivers, Charlie Sheen, Donald Trump and David Hasselhoff.

But what did Justin Bieber do exactly to be worthy of being made fun of and degraded on national television? Is it getting caught for speeding in luxury cars? His dating antics? His controversial photoshopping debacle? And who will be the ones to administer the punishment? After UTG editor James Shotwell and I got to see Little Jimmy Norton record his newest stand-up special this weekend in Boston, there’s no one more that I’d like to see do it than him. Being fair, who’s better for roasting the Biebs than a creepy guy in his 40s whose act revolves around his own sexual deviances? Exactly!

In a recent post to Facebook, Justin Bieber wrote:

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. Finally after all that hard work for my 21st bday it’s happening. Thanks On Air with Ryan Seacrest & Comedy Central for the announcement. Let’s do it smile emoticon lol ‪#‎BieberRoast‬
