Comedy Central to Roast Donald Trump

Real estate mogul Donald Trump will move from the boardroom to the hot
seat as Comedy Central has sealed a deal to roast the famous businessman.

The
Comedy Central Roast of Donald Trump
will film on Mar. 9 in New
York City and air in spring 2011.

"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."

"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," added Trump.

The
show will be executive produced by Joel Gallen from Tenth Planet Productions.
