Last night the #BieberRoast flat out lived up to the hype.
Justin Bieber bravely sat through an hour-plus of getting roasted by some of today’s biggest and up and coming comics like Kevin Hart (who played roastmaster) and SNL’s youngest cast member Pete Davidson… as well as Snoop Dogg, Shaq, and Ludacris. No knock on them because all 3 were actually really good, as was… really, everyone.
It’s been awhile since I’ve actually seen a roast and I didn’t remember how much the roasters roasted each other. That was just as enjoyable as when Bieber was the target.
But if I had to hand out the trophy, I’d go with Chicago’s own Hannibal Buress. No hometown bias, but he just kept it 100 and the results were fantastic.
There was one surprise roaster (who I won’t ruin) that was a great addition to the bill and to his credit as well, Justin Bieber actually had a lot of great zingers when he got a chance to say the last word. Finally, throughout you can also catch glimpses of some celebs in the audience like some of the Jenner-Kardashian clan, Chris Paul, Jaden Smith, and John Legend & Chrissy Teigen.
As I said, it really lived up to the hype. Enjoy the full video and some clips if you’re on the go.
