Mark your calendars: March 30th will be the day that both Beliebers and haters alike gather round to watch Comedy Central’s #BieberRoast. The best part? Funny man Kevin Hart has just been declared Roast Master. Since 1998, Comedy Central has aired 13 Roasts, with victims as diverse as Hugh Hefner, Pamela Anderson, Flavor Flav, Joan Rivers, Donald Trump, and James Franco. The TV specials bring a unique opportunity to watch some of the day’s greatest comedians make fun of some of entertainment’s most famous (and infamous) stars.

The success of the program depends largely on the Roast Master. In the past, the honorary position has been held by legends like Jimmy Kimmel, Seth MacFarlane, Jane Lynch, and Seth Rogen. This ringleader of sorts has the difficult job of making sure the roast is thoroughly humiliating while still remaining entertaining for fans and haters alike. It’s not clear yet what other comedians and celebrities will join Kevin Hart as he roasts everybody’s favorite delinquent, but we’re sure the event will be star-studded. Ellen DeGeneres was offered a spot on the show, but she turned it down, saying she didn’t want to be mean to the Biebs. Following the announcement, Hart and Bieber took to Twitter to share their emotions:
