COMEDY CENTRAL is raising the stakes and taking bets that the “COMEDY CENTRAL Roast of Donald Trump” will be the network’s most extravagant, most elite and most explosive Roast yet. The network announced today that Emmy Award(R)-winning “Family Guy” creator, writer, voice-over actor and director Seth MacFarlane will regain his throne as COMEDY CENTRAL Roast Master as he takes on hosting duties for the “COMEDY CENTRAL Roast of Donald Trump.” MacFarlane will become the first member of the creme-de-la-creme circle of COMEDY CENTRAL Roast Masters to emcee back-to-back network Roasts. His previous reign as Roast Master for the “COMEDY CENTRAL Roast Of David Hassellhoff” scored big with viewers – the special was the number one show in all of television with men 18-34.
The “COMEDY CENTRAL Roast of Donald Trump” tapes at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City on Wednesday, March 9 and airs in late March on COMEDY CENTRAL.
Roasters and attending talent will be announced shortly.
