Justin Bieber wanted to get roasted, and now he knows just who will lead the insult assault.
Comedy Central revealed on Twitter on Monday that comedian Kevin Hart would serve as roast master for the event, which is now slated to air on the network on March 30. Bieber was announced as Comedy Central's latest roast target back in January.

"Justin has been asking us for a few years to roast him, and we just kept telling him to go create more source material first," said Kent Alterman, president of Comedy Central's content development and original programming, in a statement in January. "We're thrilled he listened."
Bieber joins a list of other notorious celebs to get the roast treatment from the network, including Donald Trump and Charlie Sheen. The last person to be featured on the recurring special was James Franco in 2013.
