They should have called Charlie Sheen’s tour “Two and a Half Men,” because it sounds like that’s how many people will be left in the seats by the time each show is over.
Here’s all I know about it: People invested in something based purely on hype, empty slogans, pop-culture buzz and magical sounding promises in spite of being unsure about exactly what would happen once the curtain went up, and were horribly disappointed once reality struck. Sure, we’ve seen this movie before except on a bigger screen, but Charlie Sheen’s little contribution was last night.
What was the point of Sheen’s show (Chicago will have a chance to boo and walk out tonight)? I don’t know, but Sheen did prove that he can appeal to those afflicted with PDS every bit as well as Bill Maher:
9:18 â€“ â€œNothing terrifies a troll more than its own reflection,â€ Sheen continues, before shifting gears into politics. â€œIn a recent poll, they told me Iâ€™d bring down that whore [Sarah] Palin. I donâ€™t have time for that nonsense.â€
If anything, Maher might sue Sheen for plagiarizing his act.
In any case, it sounds like a good portion of the crowd walked out on Sheen — not because the audience was disappointed as much as they had to get over to Rutgers in time for Snooki’s speech.
Update: My God… if I’d have paid to see this, I wouldn’t have been booing Sheen — I’d be out slashing my own tires. And keep in mind, this is before it all went bad:
