Justin Bieber’s forthcoming Comedy Central Roast got off to a flying start last week, with a promo of the shirtless singer getting pelted with eggs, in a riff on one of his more infamous 2014 missteps involving ova and a former neighbor’s house.
The second promo clip rolled out on Tuesday. Simply called “Tattoo,” the teaser shows the shirtless singer unwittingly getting inked with a huge, unsightly Bullseye target on his back. The inker is Jeff Ross, one of the comics roasting the 20-year-old next month.
“Uh, how does it look?” inquires the already heavily tattoed Biebs, against the pop strains of his “Boyfriend” hit.
“It’s f—–g perfect,” promises Ross, as he looks up from his ‘bullseye tattoo work’ with a sly smile.
And so the scene for Bieber’s public skewering is set.
As the Inquisitr reported, the roast is set to be taped in Los Angeles on March 14 in front of members of the public and the star’s close friends and colleagues, exactly two weeks after the singer’s milestone 21st birthday.
The throwdown will air on the Comedy Central network on March 30 at 10 p.m.
Comic-actor Kevin Hart is the designated Roast Master. Hannibal Buress and Jeffrey Ross have now also signed on, for what is likely to be the highest viewed roast in recent times, if Internet comment and Ross’ caption to the Instagram below is anything to go by.
Previously, Ross vowed “bloody mayhem” will unfold, while Hart upped the ante with On Air With Ryan Seacrest last week.
“I’m going to smash Bieber,” the Ride Along star said when he called in to the show. He added, “It’s going to be a tough day for Biebs.”
Speaking to press on the red carpet at the recent Oscar’s, Hart again spoke to Seacrest.
“I’m gonna kill Bieber… I’m gonna kill him. It’s friendly, but I’m going to give him a couple shots. I’m gonna give him a couple real shots that he’s not expecting.”
To MTV News at the same event, Hart said he wouldn’t make Bieber cry at the roast, but added, “I just want to see his face shake.”
Watch the brief interview below.
Meanwhile, Buress recently revealed his intent going into the roast to SF Station.
“Yeah, it’s going to be fun,” Bill Cosby’s nemesis declared. “Kevin Hart’s going to be the roast master and it’s going to be one of the most-viewed roasts ever.”
“We film in a little under a month from now, so it’s weird to be in the state of mind where I’m just thinking about horrible things to say to a person.”
“In my spare time I’m just sitting around thinking, “What’s some horrible s*** I can say about Justin Bieber?” That’s something I didn’t think about [when I signed on]. It’s sitting around for a month where your mind’s state is like, ‘I have to think of something horrible to say.'”
“With the roast, you can just tap into that and be loose and horrible for seven or eight minutes. You can just go in expecting it and celebrate it.”
