A roast master has been selected for Justin Bieber’s upcoming Comedy Central ambush, a position for which there was apparently no height requirement.
Kevin Hart (Real Husbands of Hollywood) will lead the charge during the Biebs’ roast (March 30, 10/9c), the network announced Monday.
“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.”
