Mr. Tiger Blood appeared at Radio City Music Hall on Friday night. He was half an hour late. Frankly, I'm shocked he wasn't tardier. According to Roger Friedman, who was there, the theater was empty enough that he could move down from Row T to Row RR, to seats on the aisle with plenty available around him.
Apparently patrons began booing Charlie from the beginning. The "show" consisted of an interview with a friend and some rerecorded answers to Sheen's previous interview with ABC's Andrea Canning. I smell a threat of a lawsuit in 3 . . . 2 . . .
According to Friedman, despite the prodding from his "friend", Charlie couldn't come up with any gossipy stories and appeared listless and uninterested. When the audience heckled him, he cursed at them.
He did inform the audience that he's had lots of sex with lots of hookers and has taken lots of drugs. All old news. Certainly not worth the price of admission.
He admitted that he wanted his job with Two and A Half Men back and even invited Chuck Lorre to come hash out the details with him today (Sunday). Yes, this is the same Chuck Lorre that Sheen was so disdainful of last month
He also took potshots at Oliver Stone and his own brother, Emilio. Nevermind that thanks to Stone, he got his big break in Platoon or that his brother has never said an ill word about him and has actually appeared with their father, Martin Sheen, to beg Charlie to get help. I think the lashing out at his brother bothers me most about this.
I am amazed that people are paying $70+ for tickets to watch this crap. Are they paying because they are expecting Sheen to OD on the stage? Because honestly, is he really saying or doing anything noteworthy enough to take time out of your schedule to go see him, much less pay to do so?
And I hope that Chuck Lorre doesn't even think about meeting with Sheen and taking him back. Sheen has royally screwed his career and after his disgraceful behavior and comments, he doesn't deserve another chance. At least not with Lorre and Warner Bros. Welcome to the real world, Chuck.
