Being that I am a huge fan of both inappropriate jokes and mocking Justin Bieber, I've been excited about his roast since the first day those beautiful people at Comedy Central announced the good news. OK, so maybe Bieber does seem to have cleaned up his act in the past several months, but it was still too late to stop the inevitable. Bieber's Roast filmed over the weekend, and from the jokes that have already surfaced, it definitely sounds like the comedians involved weren't holding back. Of course, the special doesn't actually air until March 30, but details from the taping are exploding all over the Internet, and everything I've read has made me even more excited to see it happen. Because when Comedy Central said they were going to roast Bieber, what they really should have said was that they were going to burn him to a crisp.
If you weren't planning on watching, you should probably think about changing your plans. There's a good chance that some of the meanest jokes will probably be edited for content, but everything else? It's made me totally hyped to watch it all go down myself, and here's why.
It featured a star-studded panel of comedians
The jokes were incredibly harsh
Settle down, bring some balance into your life. Find yourself the right gal. She’ll have to be very special. She’ll have to be someone on your level, powerful and famous and rich. Someone you can smoke a joint with or indulge in the occasional three way. I’m talking about a player in the boardroom and a freak in the bedroom. So Justin, call me.
There were a ton of famous audience members
There was a monkey
One more thing. One more thing before I go. There's someone in my life who I owe a special apology to. I'm talking about someone who I really loved and lost because I screwed up. Thankfully, that special someone, the love of my life, is here tonight. I just wanted that second chance, so... you can come on out.
Because if there's one thing TV needs more of, it's adorable monkeys.
Bieber kept his sense of humor
It ended with an apology
[I] turned a lot of people off the past few years … There was no preparing me for this life. I got thrown into this, 12 years old. There are moments I’m proud of and things I've done that don’t define who I am. I look forward to being someone you’re proud of … I’m excited to see what's next. You have my word — I will not end up broken, pathetic, bitter or sitting on someone else's roast. I'm at a moment of change. This is a new day.
Good job, Bieber. Now prove it.
