    Oh, man. Looks like it was just as bad as we were afraid it might be.

    Lest you think this is merely EW taking a dump on Charlie, TMZ and MSNBC are filing similar reports.

    The idea that he is humiliating himself in front of people like this is really quite sad.

    I do like the part where he mocked the "audience" of celebrity self-destruction rubberneckers for buying a ticket.

    Well, there is a surprise, the fact that people will pay $75 not even knowing what they were going to see for 2 hours. I bet the other venues cancel and refund peoples money.

    This guy comes all the way from Toronto to see that trainwreck, and he's calling Charlie Sheen a loser? Pot meet kettle.

    Ha. I think it is funny actually. This guy is losing it if he hasnt lost it already! 75 bucks a ticket. I think Charlie is laughing all the way to the bank!

    I really like Charlie Sheen for some extremely strange reason. Even though I had never known about him until he got fired from his TV show. Am I strange? :rolleyes:

    Charlie is mess, and someone needs to do something about it before he becomes the next Chris Farley. I'm serious.

    At least Chris Farley was funny until the end. Not sure Sheen can even be saved at this point. At a certain point the brain just turns to moosh and I think that has happened to Charlie. He will never work in Hollywood again if this show keeps going.

    No, Chris Farley wasn't funny until the end. You didn't know him. I was acquainted with him. He was quite the *******. He had serious problems.

    I agree on both points. Who on Earth would hire him after this?

    If you can't make it in Detroit, you can't make it anywhere.

    Very sad but there is nobody else to blame but Charlie Sheen himself for this disaster. Well and the audience to some extent. If you spend $75 for something that will fail with a 90% chance then you shouldn't be surprised if it fails. I hope people can return their tickets for the future shows....

    Edit:

    just checked: he will be in Boston on April 12th and there are still plenty of tickets from $48 to $232 available.

    Agreed, I can't believe people actually paid to see him.

    Holy Cow man he's going to be playing in Everett WA

    Tickets are priced at:
    $49.50, $69.50, $89.50, $250, $575 (this price gets you a personal meet&greet w/signed photo and other junk)

    Only idiots pay these prices to see a jerk.

    Fortunately for Sheen and his promoters, there is no shortage of idiots.

    He's not a mess - not how you put it or many are thinking. he's completely done with the industry, the bull, the cheerleading & the insults - kiss-assing was long done by this guy.

    I think this is ALL intentional by Sheen. The first quote says it all - yet he asks the audience if their confused by it. It was intended this way. In about 60/90days we won't hear ANYTHING about Charlie ... then some 3yrs down the road we will and it will be a "ho-hum" moment that'll blow us away with a star performance.

    Artists do this all the time, but less subtle. To mind Joachim has done this recently. Self-destruction the only way to reach top is to reach rock-bottom.

    you meant joaquin (phoenix)? yeah, it would not surprise me, if there is a tigerbloodumentary about all this in a year or two.

    The difference was, Joaqin Phoenix's "breakdown" was actually just him remaining in-character for a mockumentary. I don't think Sheen's self-immolation is a joke. At least not of the jocular and light-hearted kind.
