Charlie Sheen’s ‘Torpedo of Truth’ booed by crowd
By Pat Ryder
HollywoodNews.com: Charlie Sheen took his show on the road, appearing at Detroit’s Fox Theater last night to perform in front of a sold out crowd. But his routine (named “My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not An Option”) seemed to sink like a lead balloon according to those in attendance.
The first reports of Sheen being booed came over Twitter during the actual show on Saturday, Apr. 2. Then, E!News reported that around the mid-point of Sheen’s routine, the crowd began hurling insults and a “steady chorus of boos.”
“Violent Torpedo” started with a warm-up act by comedian Kirk Fox followed by Sheen and his two “goddesses” Nat and Bree, but from that point on, the show seemingly devolved into poorly delivered skits and videos. The former “Two and a half Men” star even squeezed in poetry and rap during the 70 minute act.
Some fans reportedly walked out mid-show.
Tonight’s Sheen show in Chicago is still on, according to the latest news from TMZ. The real question is, why pay money to see something that was only marginally funny when it was free via web cam?
