Charlie Sheen‘s first “Torpedo of Truth” show is probably one that he’s like to forget. Last night, the troubled actor’s “Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not and Option Show” tour made its first of 20 stops in Detroit, MI.
It had a few good moments here and there, but several members of the audience walked out, while other demanded refunds and called out “you suck!”
At one point, Sheen responded, “You gave your hard money and you didn’t know what this was even about and I am f–king here.”
The Detroit show was ill-fated from the get-go after audience members booed the warm-up comic off the stage. Things improved slightly when Charlie Sheen his the stage, eliciting thunderous applause as a high-tech multimedia show played.
Highlights of the show included the national anthem (after which two women began kissing on-stage), Sheen eating Twizzlers, and burning a shirt that he wore on Two and a Half Men.
Later, he would present the crowd with a horrendous “Presidential Speech”, featuring clips from his various movies mixed in for “good measure” as he ranted endlessly with no real focus while the crowd booed.
The next piece put up on the big video screen was “Stalker Vids”, a collection of random news clips, fan-generated videos referencing drugs, and an animation of the Call of Duty video game being played to Sheen voiceovers.
The show’s big moment seemed to come during the display of a film clip, “RPG”, which stands for Rocket Propelled Grenade, and featured actor Johnny Depp.
Sheen, who directed the film said it was about “redemption.” The audience appeared to turn restless in response to it so he abruptly turned it off.
Sheen then launched into a question-and-answer-type session with the crowd. One audience member asked, “if you could be anywhere but here right now, where you would be right now?”
Sheen answered, “Nowhere. I’m having a great f–king time.”
After the whole mess was over, Charlie Sheen came out to meet his fans, about 500 of whom had stayed behind to meet him, but the staff at the Theater had already started vacuuming the room.
At least fans in the other 19 cities now know what to expect when Charlie Sheen’s brand of humor blows into town. More below.
