TORONTO - Fire up the coals — Justin Bieber is going on the spit.

Comedy Central says the Canadian pop sensation will be the focus of its annual televised roast, in which panellists skewer a featured celebrity with biting remarks.

The "Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber" will tape in Los Angeles.

No air date has been set.

Previous roastees have included James Franco, David Hasselhoff and Canadians William Shatner and Pamela Anderson.

In a statement, Comedy Central says the Stratford, Ont., singer has been asking the network "for a few years to roast him."

The station says it "kept telling him to go create more source material first" and it's "thrilled he listened."
