Charlie Sheen’s first stop of his sold-out 20 city “comedy tour” called My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not an Option Show apparently bombed, big time earlier tonight in Detroit.
According to numerous reports and live blogs, Charlie’s show went something like this:
At 8:35 pm, a stand-up comic, Kirk Fox opened the show and got booed — a lot. Sheen came out on stage to Fox’s rescue and told the crowd that the man was “here to help, let him do so.” Then Sheen said: “I gotta change and do my hair. I’ll be right back.”
Hmm…“Do my hair” must be the new street slang for “Do some drugs.” Very creative.Sheen went backstage, did 100 lines and prayed to the cocaine God that his show go well tonight.
While Charlie was backstage, the opener kept getting booed and left the stage before finishing.
At 8:47 pm, the theatre was filled with anticipation from the crowd for Charlie’s return to the stage.
At 9:09 pm, Charlie took the stage wearing a Tigers jersey & tweeted the following picture of the crowd from inside the Fox theatre:
According to TMZ, Charlie started the show with a Q&A session — answering audience questions about everything from favorite porn stars to crack cocaine. Then Charlie played clips from a network interview he did and ripped it apart.
At 9:35 pm, the crowd began to turn on Sheen. Some began to leave the theatre while others booed as Sheen played videos of old films he directed, which starred a young Johnny Depp.
At 9:45 pm, Sheen made another joke about crack. Apparently the crowd was so fed up with him at this point that Charlie couldn’t get a word in as the crowd yelled over him.At 10 pm, the Fox theatre hasn’t cleared out but the crowd has definitely thinned as Sheen failed to impress. At least one row only had five people in it as Charlie continued to play videos on the big screen rather than speaking himself.
At 10:08 pm, Charlie surprised his fans with a song called “Winning” (duh! what else what he title it) he recorded with Snoop however Snoop was a no-show. Charlie “world-premiered” the video for the remaining crowd.
At 10:12 pm, Sheen began to respond to some unpleased fans. “Sorry dude, already got your money,” Sheen told a booing fan.
At 10:22 pm, some fans who have bought the tickets and left the show early are said to be shouting on the streets: “Charlie Sheen stole my money!” (umm…what did you think was going to happen, you fucking idiot?)
As the fans walked out, the house lights were turned on and Sheen went backstage. He apparently did come back on stage briefly and invited the people who stayed to move up closer to the stage … but then he started complaining about his audio and walked off the stage.
Real comedians, have no fear, Charlie Sheen will not be taking your job anytime soon. My prediction is that after a few more bombing shows, Charlie’s team will cancel the tour and return $$ to those idiots who bought tickets. Expect a refund shortly.
