Charlie Sheen changes show after being booed

Charlie Sheen‘s My Violent Torpedo of Truth tour debuted in Detroit Saturday night to boos as theater-goers chanted “Refund” before walking out. Sheen changed the format for his second show, which took place last night in Chicago, opening with a poem about how much he hates Detroit. Then instead of being alone, he had an interviewer onstage to ask questions, which apparently kept the crowd entertained. At one point, when someone chanted, “Get naked,” Sheen took off his shirt and traded it for a shirt from a much larger guy in the audience. He then talked about his father’s bad career advice and read a letter from one of his “goddesses.” Richard Roeper of the Chicago Sun-Times wrote that the show was, “Not really a trainwreck, just a little bit sad and more than a little bit tedious,” which seems to have been a huge improvement over his show the night before. The audience afterwards admitted they had low expectations when they arrived for the show after reading the disastrous Detroit reviews.

    He is ‘Winning’ but only is getting poor reviews. Now here’s hoping he wins his way into a proper rehab facility and works on getting better.

    He will be “Winning” as long as people keep giving him the attention he seeks. If we all just stopped for a moment and said “hey lets forget about this guy” then maybe he might just fade into the shadows.

    Thibz,

    I totally agree, but we are both guilty of reading this article….it is a catch 22!

    I think he is becoming famous for nothing. Is his ranting funny? Is it supposed to be eye opening stuff nobody has thought about before? Doubt it. Ignore the issue and it will move on and go away. He shouldn’t put his dad down. His father made some good and bad choices himself, but Charlie is a big boy and has been since Platoon, he should blame only himself and his agent.

    Everytime I read about this guy it galls me .Here’s a guy born with a silver spoon in his mouth who also gets paid to play act in front of a camera. He is paid per episode more money than I will ever see . Yet he pisses and moans , so much so that he gets his sorry butt fired. As I await my duly notified layoff date , I shake my head and wonder how many of us would trade our left nut for his “misfortune?” He needs to hit rock bottom so he can take stock and appreciate his family and his ridiculously overpaid job.

    Anyone who pays money to see him is a loser.
