Charlie Sheen absorbed some good ribbing from the Roastmaster General, Jeff Ross, during his recent live tour, but now, the former Two and Half Men actor is prepared for the full roast treatment. Comedy Central announced today that Sheen will be the main course at the Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen. “You could say I’ve been providing kindling for this roast for a while,” said Sheen, in a statement. “It’s time to light it up. It’s going to be epic.”
“Charlie has assured us that nothing will be off limits in this Roast… which scares even us,” said Kent Alterman, Comedy Central’s head of original programming and production.
The Roast will tape in Los Angeles on Sept. 10 and air on Sept. 19. Sept. 19? Sept. 19. Hmm, why Sept. 19? What else premieres on Sept. 19? Would you believe Two and a Half Men? Yup. Nice.
