Charlie Sheen takes stage in Detroit: 'I'm a giant and leaky bag of mayhem' (Opening Night Meltdown)
Entertainment Weekly ^ | 4/2/11 | James Hibberd

Posted on 04/02/2011 7:36:25 PM PDT by jimbo123

First the U.S. automaker recession, and now this. Charlie Sheen unleashed his Violent Torpedo of Truth Tour on the Motor City on Saturday night. We’re on the scene now — refresh for updates.

10:03 — The show is now an unmitigated disaster. People are leaving early. Attendee Chris Acchione, who came all the way from Toronto for the show, says, “He’s making a fool of himself. Is there a bigger loser in the world?”

9:20 — People start booing. Sheen yells, “I already got your money, dude!”

9:18 – “Nothing terrifies a troll more than its own reflection,” Sheen continues, before shifting gears into politics. “In a recent poll, they told me I’d bring down that whore Palin. I don’t have time for that nonsense.”

9:15 — Nobody understands a word Sheen is saying. “”Is anybody else as confused by this s— as I am?” he finally asks. There are roars from the crowd. “I wrote every word!”

What did they expect? It might be popular with masochists though.

Well, he's got a point there... He's either insane or the biggest marketing genius since PT Barnum.

I have more respect for Sheen saying that...who are the biggest morons: the idiots who actually paid to see this crap or Sheen who was honest about it?

Now what did the ticket holders expect: poetry reading?

I said all along that he’d better sell out all of the shows before he takes the stage for the first one. Once you’ve read the description and the suspense is gone, what’s the point of sitting through the trainwreck?

Yes. The guy who paid for a ticket.

Of course it’s buyer beware but people might have expected a professional performance from him. Stating he has their money is just crass and boorish. If he had any respect for the people who shelled out that much money for his tix he might offer a refund.

Calls Palin a “whore.”

I disagree. Those people expect a Bush-bash type of a meltdown and they didn’t get it. Sheen also side-stepped Palin (even though he called her a whore’), and the crowd didn’t get that either.

Sheen has no respect for himself why would you think he would have any for anyone else.

On his best day he was an idiot.

Chicago’s biggest talk radio guy has been trying to talk people into going with free tickets and has had little luck. The word is the ticket brokers are taking a bath on these tickets having gone long in them. The public is not buying.

Not sure who is more dumb: Sheen or the people who actually spent money to listen to that fool say basically nothing. Pitiful.

It’s hard to argue w either of those comments but I think the majority of people expect to see what they see on his tv show and a minority percentage of them follow what they see on ET. I hardly think any of those people read FreeRepublic.com, where the truth resides.

I hope all of his shows crash and burn so he will go away in shame. Or just go away.

9:40 — Sheen says he’s going to “Tell some stories about crack. I figured Detroit was a good place to tell some crack stories.” This comment, not surprisingly, does not go over well. “Show of hands who here has tried crack?” Very few people raise their hands. “I don’t do crack anymore, but this is a good f—ing night to do some crack.” The audience boos.

Surreal.

The advance said his appearances were sold out in advance. True, if you count the idiot ticket brokers who took a bunch at cut rate cost. He is scheduled to appear in Cleveland soon but few actual seats will be filled. Nobody cares. His fifteen minutes expired a couple weeks ago.

Ditto. I thought he was crazy like a fox too, but now it looks like he’s just plain ol’ french fried. Too bad. I was hoping the whole crazy thing was a brilliant act. Guess not.

How in the hell did Sarah Palin get into this? Good Grief.

It's the only way losers can get any press.

Even if they said nothing ABOUT her but just said her name, it would get them in the news.

Truly a phenomenon

The reason to go see Sheen is the same reason some people go to a car race - the opportunity to see a wreck.

You just wonder what dad Martin is feeling at this moment. Regret would be my first guess, followed by profound sadness.

Charlie, however bad a dad Martin was, try not to be an even worse son. Maybe something can be salvaged for both of you, even at this late hour.

Your right . I’ve noticed so many comics , actors , political hacks and so on have to send out the Palin insult before speaking . These dopes are so out of touch they think this is cool and helps their street cred. It's now fun to watch and hear . If we needed more proof that the lefties are the slow ones in our mist , this is it . Liberalism is a mental disorder .

I think maybe Charlie is getting his group therapy from the public and getting paid for it. Not a bad idea.
