'The Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber' has officially named its roast master: Kevin Hart!

"I don't normally do roasts, but I had to step out for my guy Biebs…It's his big 21," the comedian said in a statement (quote via E! News). "It's about to be operation roast everyone's ass."

Added Comedy Central exec Kent Alterman: "They say only a good friend would verbally eviscerate another good friend for all his vulnerabilities. Kevin Hart is a very good friend."

As for Justin -- who came up with the idea to roast himself in the first place -- well, he's pretty psyched for the whole thing to go down.

“I think it’s just cool to be able to laugh at yourself,” he explained on 'Ellen.' “I’ve done some things that may not be the greatest. I just want to be able to laugh about it and just own up to some of these things."

The roast of the Biebs is set to be filmed on March 14 and air on Comedy Central on March 30. We cannot wait.
