NEW YORK, December 16, 2010 – Things are going to become harried for COMEDY CENTRAL’s newest Roastee, real estate mogul and the most

recognized businessman in the world, Donald Trump. With no boardroom in sight, the only firing happening

that evening will be the quick-witted jabs directed at the world renowned Trump. The show is scheduled to

tape on March 9, 2011 in New York City. The “COMEDY CENTRAL Roast Of Donald Trump” will air in the Spring of

2011.

“I’ll show up to the Roast because COMEDY CENTRAL is paying me a lot of money, but I’m confused

as to how anybody could make fun of me,” said Trump
“Donald Trump is a brilliant business man, who has made the Trump name a worldwide brand,” said Elizabeth

Porter, SVP, specials and talent, COMEDY CENTRAL. ” We are so glad he agreed to be Roasted. I’m hoping he

buys me a plane.”

first time since 2005. The previous Roasts taped in NYC were “The COMEDY CENTRAL Roast Of Denis Leary” and

the top-rated Roast of all-time, “The COMEDY CENTRAL Roast Of Jeff Foxworthy.”
