The Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber will air on the Comedy Network in Canada on March 30 (at 10 p.m. ET/PT).

The annual televised roast sees panellists skewering a featured celebrity with biting remarks.

In a posting on his Twitter account last month, Bieber said he's long wanted Comedy Central to roast him.

He said the channel told him he needed to provide more material — and he "worked hard" to provide it for the past year.

In his tweet about the Hart news on Monday, Bieber used the hashtags "#neverscared" and "#kindascared."
