The Donald To Get Roasted In NYC

Worldwide business magnate, socialite, author, television personality, Wrestlemania 23 participant, and now Comedy Central’s newest roastee.  Yes, real estate mogul Donald Trump just added another title to his resume as he will be at the mercy of some of comedy’s most ruthless critics at the first Comedy Central roast to take place in New York City since 2005.  Trump is set to be roasted on March 9, 2011 with the special airing on Comedy Central sometime next spring.  Trump addressed the news in a way that only the Donald could:

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.

The only other celebs to be roasted in NYC were Denis Leary and Jeff Foxworthy.  Foxworthy’s special was the highest-rated Comedy Central roast of all-time.
