Justin Bieber’s Comedy Central Roast: Comedians He Picked To Skewer Him
An eyewitness at the Laugh Factory tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY, “Justin was here last night [Jan. 26] to see Erik Griffin. He saw Erik here a couple of weeks ago when he came with Kendall [Jenner]and Hailey [Baldwin]. Justin is also really good friends with Chris D’Elia, who is hysterical. Both Chris and Erik are so talented and genuinely great people. It would be awesome if Justin invited both of them on his Comedy Central Roast.”
Another source confirms to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY, “Justin wants a few friends to be a part of his night so he doesn’t get totally annihilated. He wants Chris D’Elia to be on the dais, this is the one lock for the show so far.”
Justin is so fond of these jokesters that he and “his boys” go to the Laugh Factory to see them all the time. If you’re ever there, keep an eye out for JB in the VIP balcony section!
“Justin’s been at the Laugh Factory many times and once had a mini-roast on stage here,” our first source reveals. “What’s great is that Justin can really take a joke. It’s quite endearing.”
