Monday night, Comedy Central presented to the world the Roast of Justin Bieber. For those of you that don’t know what the hell a roast is, it’s where comedians and celebrities come together to make fun of a person all in good fun. And the running joke of pop culture, Justin Bieber, apparently asked this for himself as something he wanted to do. The roast master was Kevin Hart and the Roasters were Hannibal Buress, Jeffrey Ross, Martha Stewart (yes, you read that right), Snoop Dogg, Ludacris, Shaquille O’Neal, Chris D’Elia, Natasha Leggero, Pete Davidson and a special appearance by Will Ferrell as his legendary character Ron Burgundy.
This roast was pretty much balls to wall comedy. It was all the jokes about Bieber but raunchier and better told…I’m very upset that I wasn’t invited to take part in this.
The stand out Roaster had to Martha Stewart. I did not expect her to make the jokes or be as funny as she was. She made references to having Weed Brownies with Snoop Dogg, Shanking Shaq’s mom in prison as she told Justin how to survive in prison. She even positioned to have a weed filled Threesome with Justin, which got her praise from everyone. Who never Martha Stewart was so raunchy? I like raunchy Martha Stewart.Shaq’s jokes were my least favorite because he just looked so awkward and uncomfortable . His jokes would have been funnier if he looked like he was more comfortable.
Now let’s real talk for a moment and talk about the elephant in the room. This was one big publicity stunt to pretty much have “the second coming” of Justin Bieber. It’s a cheap way to get the little douche to have others praise him and for him to say “I’m going to change.” For that, I applaud Team Douche because that is genius.
