Charlie Sheen to be Roasted on Comedy Central-Are You Serious?

leave a comment »

Tragedy has never before begged so loudly to overtake an individual as it apparantly is pursuing Charlie Sheen. Actually, henceforth I will refer to ‘him’ as ‘Chuckles.’ My reasons are personal, but suffice it to say that I have a no ‘Charlie Sheen’ policy. It is pretty strict too. I had to bend the rules just to write this.

I’m not sure when Comedy Central announced this, but I just heard on WLNK 107.9FM in Charlotte that Comedy Central will present the ‘Chuckles’ Celebrity Roast on September 19th.

I’m having a few problems with this. First, I think that the comics presenting that night ought to be donating their time, as they won’t have to actually do anything but deliver the punchlines. I mean to say, with ‘Chuckles’ the comedy pretty much writes itself. Seriously, could the last few months have been any more comical then his wacko tirades. In addition to the fact that the comics won’t actually have to do much, I have a problem with the $2 Million payday ole ‘Chuckles’ will be taking home. In my never-to-be-humble opinion he should donate the money to a worthwhile charity. Perhaps something along the lines of “Free HIV testing for wayward ex-porn stars.” Maybe even give to the fund for ‘The Society for Rescuing Poor Innocent Children from the Clutches of Obviously Insane Hollywood Parents.” (a personal favorite of mine). Look, I know a lot of people dig the ‘Chuckler’…but, I ain’t buying the load Mr. Torpedo of Truth is Selling. Not sure who I feel worse for, the little ‘Chucklets’ or Martin Sheen. Which is worse, being dragged into the twisted world of an insane man, whose rants make Manson (oddly enough, another ‘Chuck’) look like an intelligent choir boy.

Don’t get me wrong, I will again bend the rules I have imposed upon myself and tune in to the Comedy Central Roast of ‘Chuckles.’ Maybe, just maybe, the likes of Jeff Ross, Lisa Lampanelli, Gi8lbert Godfried and that anorexic Whitney Chick won’t disappoint me. Maybe they won’t go for the usual, obvious gags about his sex life, drug abuse, womanizing, insane tirades, shouting from rooftops……wait, what I talking about? What am I saying, it’s the same old same old.

Hey Comedy Central, why don’t you get some good comics to roast for you? How about people like, Brian Regan, Kathleen Madigan, Steven Wright…shoot, even Snoop Dogg did a better job on the Donald Trump Roast then those other clowns.

At any rate, look for my post the day after that one for sure.
