On Saturday night, Charlie Sheen bombed out at his debut show of his “My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Death is Not an Option” Tour. But as if to prove he could land in any much and eventually come up smelling of roses, Sheen skilfully won over an audience in Chicago last night.
Just the previous night, Sheen had been booed off stage as his tour started out in Detroit, Michigan. But, moving on to Chicago, Illinois, a hastily revamped show impressed the audience. Perhaps because it gave show-goers what they had hoped to see originally.
In Chicago, Sheen dropped his disastrous attempts at comedy. Instead, he did a Q&A session with an interviewer on stage and swapped banter with those who had paid to see the show. His stories covered his personal life and career and gave a real insight into the real (still wacky) Charlie Sheen.
In part of the Chicago show, Sheen admitted he would return to “Two and a Half Men”, even though he was fired last month.
“If they say, ‘Here’s your job back,’ I’ll go back to work. I think it’s a great f-ing show,” he said, before going on to rant about how the producers mistreated him. Well, it wouldn’t be a Charlie Sheen show without some ranting now, would it?
But his performance this time went down well and he received a standing ovation. He took that humbly and thanked the audience for attending despite getting hammered in the reviews for his Detroit show. He said, “I had the best f-ing time of my life, unlike that death sentence that was Detroit.”
Maybe Charlie Sheen is back to winning ways.
