There was one thing that all of the comedians at the Comedy Central Justin Bieber Roast could all agree on — it was pretty brave of the “Baby” singer to volunteer to be skewered for hours just in the name of comedy.
Eight celebrities were in attendance to not just make fun of Bieber, but also take some digs at each other. The roasters included host Kevin Hart, rappers Snoop Dogg and Ludacris (who collaborated with Bieber on his first smash hit “Baby,”), comedians Chris D’Elia (Bieber’s favorite), Natasha Leggero, Jeffrey Ross, and Hannibal Buress, Hall of Fame basketball player Shaquille O’Neil, lifestyle guru Martha Stewart, and Saturday Night Live cast member Pete Davidson.
Plus, Justin and the rest of the panel got a surprise when Will Ferrell appeared as his Anchorman character, Ron Burgandy, scotch and cigarette in hand.
The night was full of laughs at the expense of Bieber, the panel, and even those in attendance, which included Kendall Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian, Dave Chappelle, and Justin’s manager, Scooter Braun.
