Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen Reviews
October 26, 2011
Charlie sure is winning in this one. But damn has he aged a lot in the past few years. He looks like he could be the twin brother of Sweden's most famous criminal/drug abuser Christer Pettersson. In any case, this was a hilariously funny roast and one of the best I've ever had the pleasure to watch. Just seeing Mike Tyson doing comedy (or what you wanna call it), was absolutely priceless. And after many a merciless insults and spot-on punch lines, it all wraps up on a high-as-a-kite note - as in Steve-O throwing himself into Mike Tyson's fist, resulting in a broken nose and William Shatner letting out a "WTF?". It just doesn't get much better than that.

I don't care too much for Charlie Sheen so this didn't interest me. Mike Tyson looked and sounded like he was on something. Definitely needed some Lisa Lampanelli humor.

Well... I got exactly what I expected from it. I'm so glad Seth McFarlane got more screen time than it seemed he would have gotten. I find him to be one of the few funny 2011 comics out there. Thank god for William Shatner as well. Even though near the middle it just seemed like all the Roasters started to forget Sheen was there and started making fun of each other, this was a very entertaining hour and a half. Charlie Sheen may be a dumb man, but he can make a pretty memorable and funny speech.
Remember, it's not MTV. It's Comedy Central!

Now Boarding the Charlie Sheen Crazy Train.
Comedy Central consistently delivers great quality shows with their Roasts. Everybody was super funny and who knew that Mike Tyson could deliver good humor as well. One special thanks goes to Jon Lovitz for the joke of 2011 that has gotten me consistent laughs with everyone I meet and "shoehorn" Charlie Sheen into the conversation. It goes: "And now a joke . . . how much cocaine can Charlie Sheen do? . . . Enough to kill 2 1/2 men." If Mr. Lovitz knew how many laughs I get repeating his joke, he'd charge me royalties. William Shatner made a few cranks to the Sheen rotisserie without hamming it up too much. Jeff Ross who's such a regular to these events that his peers love to note that this is the only job he can get. He also adds the right amount of seasoning to the roistering Warlock. The late Patrice O'Neal is an excellent roaster as well and has a funny exchange with William Shatner that doesn't go off-topic too much.
The only person who either didn't understand who the Roast was about, or was incredibly ill prepared, was Jackass's Steve O. Still anybody willing to run into a reluctant Mike Tyson's fist has my vote for a future invite. And speaking of future invites, thank you very Comedy Central for not having that, annoying, face-licking, attention grabbing, Andy Dick (head) whose only goal in life now seems to be in seeing how many people he can make cringe till their necks snap with his inappropriate distractions. And of course I can mention all the other roasters and the excellent job they did, but I'm getting a little lazy at this point.
Seth McFarlane is the perfect Roast Master in my opinion who perfectly keeps the flow going between Comedy Chefs taking their turn at the Rack-Of-Sheen. He has a mastery of being incredibly funny without stealing attention.
Lastly, no matter what a person does, I have a certain amount of respect for some one that tells a boss to (FOAD) and still gets another job. Way to go Charlie.
