Kevin Hart will soon give it to Justin Bieber. Hard.
The comedian has been tapped to host the upcoming Comedy Central roast aimed at the singer, who is on a mission to turn his reputation around.
“I don’t normally do roasts, but I had to step out for my guy Biebs,” Hart said in a statement. “It’s his big 21. It’s about to be Operation: Roast Everyone’s Ass.”
Last month, the cable network announced Bieber would be the target of its next roast, with the singer playing along excitedly via a pretty funny Tweet:
“For years I have wanted Comedy Central to roast me,” he wrote. “They said only if I provided them w/ more material so for a year now I have worked hard.”
That's for sure!
Bieber was arrested multiple times in 2014, for charges ranging from vandalism to assault. From a comedic standpoint, he peaked in a deposition that was released in March.
It's worth revisiting that low point in order to see just how far Justin Bieber fell last year:
Recently, however, Justin has been on a mission to improve.
Bieber, meanwhile, joins a long list of celebrities who have been roasted on Comedy Central, including James Franco, Charlie Sheen and Donald Trump.
