Well, this should be entertaining.

Justin Bieber has agreed to be the next celebrity to be skewered in a Comedy Central special.

The Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber will tape in Los Angeles later this year and an airdate will be announced shortly.

Bieber is a very easy target. From his recent Calvin Klein ads and 2014 DUI arrest to his scuffle with Orlando Bloom last July, the roasters will have plenty of fodder.

Kent Alterman, Comedy Central’s President of Content Development and Original Programming, thinks that Bieber is the perfect star to be lambasted. “Justin has been asking us for a few years to roast him,” he said in a statement. “We just kept telling him to go create more source material first. We’re thrilled he listened.”

Bieber will be in good company. In previous years, the network has roasted Charlie Sheen, James Franco and William Shatner.
