Charlie Sheen: Roasted On Comedy Central

I have always been a huge fan of Comedy Central's celebrity roasts. I mean what's not to love? A group a sharp tongued actors and comics poking jest at one another's shortcomings and downfalls that have led to public embarrassment. In fact, I believe that heaven for a comic is a synonymous dais. Which is strange when you add in the 'roasting' aspect. Gives more of a hell feeling. Well, they say all dogs go to heaven... Maybe “All comics go to hell.” just hasn't caught on yet.

Either way, come September 19, you best be locked, ready, and tuned in to watch 46-year old Charlie Sheen get his ass roasted. It almost doesn't seem fair, right? It's kind of like playing dodge ball with a drunk autistic kid. You know he's going down in the first fling. But I digress. There is no room for honest emotion in comedy!

Among the roasters, you will see Mike Tyson, Jackass' Steve-O, TMZ's Harvey Levin, William Shatner, Kate Walsh and comedians Jeffrey Ross, Anthony Jeselnik (former Late Night with Jimmy Fallon writer), Jon Lovitz, Patrice O'Neal (The Office) and Amy Schumer (Red Eye) lambasting Sheen roundly. The show will also feature a special appearance from guitarist Slash with Seth MacFarlane serving as Roast Master.

Recently taped at Sony Studios stage 27, Sheen took his verbal thrashings with a wide smirk on his face while sipping his drink. At the end of the event, according to the Associated Press, “roast master Seth MacFarlane introduced the night's honoree as 'a man with a big heart, because it's been dangerously enlarged by cocaine use.' ” To which Sheen rebutted taking jabs at his own image saying, "It's true I've hung around with a lot of shady people over the years: Losers, drug addicts, dealers, desperate whores... But to have you all here on one night is really special."

The evening of quips and digs victoriously came to a close with our very own Charlie stating, "This roast may be over, but I'm Charlie Sheen, and in here burns an internal fire, (touching his chest). I just have to remember to keep it away from a crack pipe."
