Charlie Sheen is by no means a dumb guy. He has made millions on dick and fart jokes. From Spin City to Two and a Half Men – Young Guns to Major League he has made a fortune playing pretty much himself in different settings. Now Charlie Sheen or should I say Carlos Irwin Estévez is finally shedding the Cowboy hat and the Cleveland Indians cap and talking his show on the road -as himself. He has announced Charlie Sheen LIVE: My Violent Torpedo of Truth.
The first couple of shows announced for Charlie Sheen LIVE: My Violent Torpedo of Truth sold out in record time. What Charlie did wrong after that was twofold. He didn’t not quit while he was ahead. Secondly he decided to bring his show to the state most recently named most intelligent state in the US.
No one knows the format of Charlie’s Show yet. I hope you are not expecting something along the lines of “A Evening With Kim Ung-Yong”. Cuz brother you anit gettin it. One can guess it will be a one man bitchfest about the Networks, Jon Cryer and his ex-wives. I am sure there will be plenty of porn stars and strippers on stage and in the audience…it will be a ho fest.
Another thing I am sure of is My Violent Torpedo of Truth will make its way to Showtime or maybe in a longshot to HBO in a few months. It will eventually find itself in the reduced price DVD pile where I will most likely finally pick it up for 3 dollars.
While Detroit and Chicago are clamoring for hundred dollar tickets to this borefest. I guess Bostonians are too smart to drop cold cash on this direct to DVD garbage. 1688 tickets remain unsold of the 7200 tickets available for the Charlie Sheen LIVE: My Violent Torpedo of Truth Boston show. I am sure that same night the Boston Symphony Orchestra will sell out; as will The Red Sox against the Tampa Bay Rays and hopefully the Bruins Playoff game.
Carlos Irwin Estévez will have to funnel hundreds of the tickets to his show to radio stations and giveaways to claim a victory at Boston University’s Arena. Why they booked this show at Boston University is a mystery to me anyway. I am guessing Harvard and MIT were unavailable that night.
WINNING?…not so much anymore.
