Lord, Save Us: The Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen Is Coming

By

Comedy Central recently cancelled their planned roast of Kid Rock, but it looks like they’ve landed a bigger, sadder fish to replace him: Charlie Sheen. The network just announced that they’ll be taping the roast of Sheen in LA on September 10th and will then air it at 10pm on September 19th. As Sheen says in the press release, “You could say I’ve been providing kindling for this Roast for a while. It’s time to light it up. It’s going to be epic.” This kills off the rule that they “only roast the ones they love” once and for all, right? It also is going to be a real comedic test for whoever ends up on the panel. After all, how do you make “winning,” “tiger blood,” and “megalomania and chemical dependency” funny? It’s gonna be a dark one, guys.
