NEW YORK, March 2, 2011 -- Donald Trump has got a "situation" and all the money in the world can't fix it. COMEDY CENTRAL announced today an all-star roster of Roasters, who will be joining Roast Master Seth MacFarlane to ensure the night is filled with jabs that are fast, hard and on the money. The "COMEDY CENTRAL Roast of Donald Trump" will tape at The Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City on Wednesday, March 9 and will premiere on Tuesday, March 15 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT on COMEDY CENTRAL.

Celebrity Roasters to man the notoriously take-no-prisoners dais will include legendary television personality and suspender connoisseur, Larry King, current "Celebrity Apprentice" contestant and Academy Award(R)-winner Marlee Matlin, the chronically blunt rapper Snoop Dogg and "Jersey Shore's" finest, the abulous Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino. Joining them on the stage will be a crew of the most merciless comedians ever assembled. This year's Roasters include comedians Whitney Cummings, Anthony Jeselnik, Lisa Lampanelli, and Jeffrey Ross. Additional Roasters and talent to be in attendance will be announced shortly.

The Emmy(R) Award-nominated COMEDY CENTRAL Roast franchise returns to New York City for the 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."

The "COMEDY CENTRAL Roast of Donald Trump" will be executive produced by Joel Gallen from Tenth Planet Productions, who was also executive producer and director of the following "COMEDY CENTRAL Roasts:" David Hasselhoff, Joan Rivers, Larry The Cable Guy, Bob Saget, Flavor-Flav, William Shatner (Emmy(R)-nominated) and Pamela Anderson. Elizabeth Porter is the executive in charge for the network. Andy Litinsky from Trump Productions LLC is a Producer on the project.
