Charlie Sheen: What Is Really Funny About Watching Charlie Sheen Implode?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Perhaps I just don’t get it. I don’t understand why people would pay good money to watch Charlie Sheen on stage. Yes I know he’s famous (or should that be notorious). I know he commands a great many column inches in the newspapers, in celebrity magazines and in numerous blogs and articles on the internet. One look at Google News told me that there 2323 news articles on Charlie Sheen. I also know he’s been married twice, had 5 children, seems to have an enormous appetite for a variety of substances and spends most of the time pleasing himself. I'm aware he's recently been sacked from his obscenely well paid television role for insulting his paymasters, director, co-star and almost anyone else. I also believe at one time. before his adventurous lifestyle seemed to take over he was also a rather good actor.

So what is his most recent adventure. It’s to perform a one man show about his favourite subject. Yes you guessed it. Charlie Sheen. And why not. It's a subject he appears to find endlessly fascinating and he has a lot to say fo about himself. So that makes it interesting doesn't it?. Well actually no it doesn't.

According to some of the punters who attended his first show in Detroit it was a shambles and the crowd felt cheated. Apparently he was booed, yelled at and some people walked out.. Well c’mon. What did they expect? Was it because he told awful jokes or swore at the crowd? It doesn’t seem so. From the few people who were interviewed after the show, their main complaint appeared to be that he just hadn’t made enough of a fool of himself and been completely mad.

Now it’s me who’s disappointed. Somehow I thought we were supposed to be more civilised than that. Their complaints sound like Roman citizens upset because they didn’t get to see a person ripped to shreds by a hungry lion. What is wrong with people. I’ve watched a couple of clips from the Detroit event and I would probably have walked out if I had attended, but then I wouldn't have wanted to go in the first place. On any kind of level I don't currently find Charlie Sheen very funny.Clearly I’m missing something.

However, why should I worry about Charlie Sheen? Apparently the man then redeemed himself (slightly) at his next show in Chicago, in which he included a poem in his ‘act’ about how much he hated Detroit. You have to hand it to the man, he really doesn’t care whether he insults people tongue in cheek or with deliberate maliciousness. After all this is what passes for entertainment.

The saddest thing about the Charlie Sheen ‘story’ for me, is he’s the father of five kids and however protective their mothers are even when newspapers have been recycled, clips of his wayward behaviour will be on the internet forever. His four youngest children are going to take a lot of flak in future.

Martin Sheen, his erstwhile father has said that Charlie’s addictions are “as dangerous as cancer”. I know what he means, but of all the addictions Charlie Sheen has, or is reputed to have, I think the most worrying one is his apparent addiction to fame. If he had any sense he wouldn’t go round the theatres of America spouting rubbish and trying to make a point and cash in on his notoriety. He’d put all that pent up energy into sorting himself out. Will he do it? Not a chance.

And as for the people who want to buy his tickets? I’d say there are far better things to do with your money. But hey, I’m the first one to admit. I just don’t get the appeal of watching Charlie Sheen implode.
