13 Can't-Miss Moments from Justin Bieber's Roast
BOYS WILL BE BOYS
The man of the hour fraternizes with the enemy – comedians Blake Anderson and Anders Holm – before his merciless skewering in L.A. on Saturday night.
CHURCH & STATE
Meanwhile, comedian Jeff Ross arrives at the roast decked out in pope attire and surrounded by a posse of nuns (however, we're guessing none of them are actually part of the clergy).
Inside, mustachioed Anchorman newscaster Ron Burgundy – played by the ever-straight-faced Will Ferrell – struggles to "keep it classy" as he doles out a series of burns. Of the Biebs' recent friendships, Burgundy asked, "What's more classy than hanging out with Floyd Mayweather?"
Stand-up comic and actor Chris D'Elia – Bieber's favorite comedian – is physically unable to contain himself on stage during the roast (let's hope we feel that way when we watch it on Comedy Central on Monday, March 30).
In an unusual public appearance, comedian Dave Chappelle has a blast in the audience, a safe (and likely strategic) distance away from all the burning action, considering even the roasters were roasted.
JOKES ON JOKES ON JOKES
But pals Kevin Hart and Shaquille O'Neal may be having the best time of everyone. Before the show, Hart promised he wouldn't try to make Bieber cry – though he clearly can't prevent himself from crying (of hilarity).
On stage mid-roast, Bieber shows he can roll with the punches, though he definitely didn't emerge unscathed. "Damn, you guys were brutal," he said after the attacks wound down. "This was supposed to be a birthday present."
The night before the season premiere of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, sisters (and apparently devout Beliebers) Kendall Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian show up to watch their friend get destroyed.
PEAS IN A POD
Our favorite unlikely friendship – between Stewart and Snoop – is on full display as the two giggle uncontrollably. At one point in the show, comedian Natasha Leggero commented, "All these rappers on stage and Martha Stewart has done the most jail time."
Chappelle, John Legend and Chrissy Teigan share a sweet moment (Justin Bieber: Bringing people together for 21 years).
Naturally, the roast after-party heats up with a giant graphic of shirtless Bieber covered in flames (and tattoos, because he's tough now).
