Who will preside over a must-see evening of Charlie Sheen being skewered on Comedy Central?

None other than Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane.

Comedy Central has tapped the acerbically funny writer-actor-producer to host the ceremonious roasting of the former Two and a Half Men star. To get an idea of what we’re in for, here is MacFarlane on his acceptance of the gig: “I’m very excited to work with Comedy Central again on the roast,” MacFarlane said. “Charlie is a true icon with a talent that is strong and pure and concentrated into small crystals which can be smoked or eaten.”

Yup, the Sheen jokes are sure to crack you up!

Added Comedy Central programming head Kent Alterman on snagging MacFarlane: “In addition to his sharp wit, Seth is way more suave and sophisticated than we are. We continue to try and soil him.”

In fact, this will mark MacFarlane’s third time presiding over a Comedy Central celebrity roast, the only person to ever undertake the role three times.

The special event premieres on Sept. 19 at 10 p.m., the same night as the return of CBS’ Men.

    Well, it’s official: Seth MacFarlane has become the Dean Martin of Comedy Central Roasts.

    • Matt

      What else has he done, roasting-wise?

      • Heather

        He did Trump’s, and did it very well. He’s very funny, biting, and seems to be a little above it all, which adds to the humor considering the people on the dais.

      • Wengal

        He does pretty much all the voices on Family guy as well

      • john

        he also did the David Hasselhoff Roast as well

  • Mick Nolte

    Was Chuck Lorre unavailable? Denise Richards? Brooke Mueller?

    • Mick Nolte is not funny

      who cares about them, Charlie and Seth are the funny ones not these lame folks.

      If I had the choice to do either – Seth or Charlie – it would be a tough choice, but somebody has to win…

  • Marcy

    Can’t wait to watch the Roast. Gonna be interesting.

  • Clete

    “A must-see evening.”? There are a lot of things that I must see, I don’t believe that this I would classify as one of them.

    • Jay

      Are you kidding…? Sheen fans & haters alike would enjoy a good roasting.

  • Um

    Will Emilio be there?

  • Josh

    I would LOVE if this roast thing turned out to be a scam and instead was a giant intervention.

  • BamaPhilip

    Why did people love Charlie Harper and his lifestyle, but demonized Charlie Sheen for the same behavior? Hypocritical much?

    • skinny fat albert

      because one is fictional and one is real. duh

    • This Guy

      It’s called the ability to separate fact from fiction.

    • Seriously?

      Because Charlie Sheen is a real person. He has real children. He held a real knife to a real woman’s throat. He had a real gun that somehow managed to shoot a real person. He takes real drugs and has been rushed to a real hospital for a real overdose. And he has been arrested for hitting a real woman.

      • GET real

        seriously ? You also seriously believe all the press will tell you…sad..Sheen has his problems but 90 percent of what it is said on the medias are not REAL.

      • Shaun

        Seriously, GET real? How do you know that none of that is real? I suppose someone else in the press told YOU that. You seriously believe all the press will tell YOU? Honestly, enough the “don’t believe what the press tells you, do your own research” crap. Unless you were personally there, everything you’ve ever known was told to you by someone else.

      • Seriously?

        Get real…And you know this how? Yes I’m taking the word of the press which got their info from police reports. Where are you getting your “proof”? I assume you weren’t there either to “know” it didn’t happen. You’re taking the word of a drug addcit and his posse?

      • GET real

        Yeah i know better and you…quite pathetic to believe all the tabloids tell you..Such boring lives you should have..almost pity you..almost..haha.

      • Seriously?

        With grammar like that you are in position to be pitying anybody. So the police made up fake incident reports and the papers (not talking about the Enquirer here, though even they have been proven right on a whole lot of stories) used those reports to write fake stories? If all this stuff is untrue, Sheen could make a fortune in lawsuits…

      • obviously and idiot

        wow this seriously get real stuff is confusing are u guys saying the name or saying those words… worst names ever
