This Ain’t Winning: Detroit Finds Out The Hard Way That Charlie Sheen Is Not Funny… At All

- By Bossip Staff

We’re not quite sure why anyone is surprised by this. But the people who made Charlie Sheen’s first “comedy” show sell out in record time are definitely regretting spending that money this morning.

A sold-out crowd of more than 4,500 packed into the Fox Theater in Detroit on Saturday, curious to lay eyes on the media spectacle that has become Charlie Sheen. But from all reports, it was a thoroughly disastrous night for the “warlock.”

First, audience members heckled the warm-up comedian so badly, according to, Sheen had to step onstage and intervene — to no avail. The comic was booed off the stage, and house lights soon came up, causing the impatient masses to grow even more restless.

When the headliner himself launched into his first ‘Violent Torpedo of Truth’ performance, an hour after the disjointed show first started, reports that a standing ovation for the former ‘Two and a Half Men’ star soon gave way to boos, jeers and walk-outs. Sources say many asked for their money back.

The concert is promoted by LiveNation as the launch of a 20-city tour with dates throughout the month of April. Inside, souvenirs were hawked to fans, such as $20 programs and $30 T-shirts (“F—ing Brilliant!” and “I’m on a drug. It’s called Charlie Sheen”).

The flailing show featured scores of video clips, including fan tributes from YouTube, violent film excerpts and one of Sheen just playing Call of Duty. At one point, the TV actor reportedly shrugged off his poor reception with the comeback, “I’ve already got your money!”

How bad was it? Here’s a sample:

“Tonight is an experiment”….”I am finally here to identify and train the Vatican assassin locked inside each and every one of you”….”Show of hands here who has tried crack? (Crickets) I don’t do crack anymore, but this is a good f—ing night to do some crack”….”Is anybody else as confused by this s–t as I am? I wrote every word!”

Yikes. It wasn’t all bad for Sheen though. At $20 and $30 a pop, we’re sure he made a killing off of t-shirts. And like he told the audience: he and Live Nation already got their money.

    Serves those sheeple right for buying into the hype, and the ones who want a refund are fuqed. Crack heads don’t have a return policy, you’ve been served.

    • Shelly

      So true.

      It’s funny but before the first show even kicked off TMZ had a pic of the refund policy highlighted on their site. NO REFUNDS OF ANY KIND EVEN IF CHARLIE CANCELED THE SHOW. That should have been a tip off right there. lol

  • Bopa

    They shouldn’t get their money back if they were stupid enough to buy tickets for a show featuring a person they’ve never seen do stand up.

    If i wana laff at a junky i cud drive to the hood for free

    • SMH

      You is right… The junkies in the hood are the funniest!

  • JustAshley

    Thats what they get. Those blood s.u.c.king, souless freaks bought those tickets with the hope they’d see a crack addict self-destruct before there very eyes. SMH.


    If Charlie had any common sense he would get one someone like a Chris Brown, a good band, or a few really good comedians to make this show work. He’s collecting a lot of money. Shoot, I’m surprised that he actually showed up. I respect his hustle, most celebrities can’t do what he’s done. The drugs need to go though.


    Detroit is one of the POOREST cities in the country. One of the highest in foreclosures, unemployment and not to mention crime. Still these FOOLS paid $150.00 per ticket to see him. I say Charlie and his crack-head goddesses are WINNING

  • Tm30

    What did they really expect? Just take it as a lesson learned and go sit down somewhere.

  • Zia



      @Zia, I’ve been to Detroit & I’ve seen blocks of empty houses and I’ve seen the poverty there. I have friends from Detroit who live here in DC now and they swear they are NEVER going back there. Your comment that Detroit has one of the highest unemployment rates there means what? POVERTY stupid B!TCH. $hit is so f*cked up there, the asians were buying the houses there for $1. I can see you are in your feelings but it is what it is.

    • I'm Just Me...Keeping It Real Since: 1983...Bossip is f*cking with me today :( :(

      According to the stats Detroit is the poorest in the nation with Buffalo, NY (where I live) not far behind. DC wasn’t being rude, just stating facts. Maybe you should pull your head out of your azz and understand the reality instead of living in denial. Also learn to use some punctuation in your statement. Zia = #epicfail

  • likeomg

    Americans are so stupid yall think its okay to exploit a mentally handycaped person n then when u find out that he aint all funny you tosh him aside. Selfish greedy people next time you want some entertainment why don’t you run in front of a moving truck.

  • http://PieceofInfo elle

    The people who live in Detroit didn’t go to the show. The show was just held in the city. Its called controversy people catch up. Its just a means to keep negativity flowing.

  • Ridiculous 1

    Charlie’s “winning” streak is over.

  • Booger Bear

    Sounds like the idiots who paid 150.00 to see Charlie are on crack.

    • such and such

      Maybe thats why they got angry when he asked the question. But he stated policy before they bought the tickets…no refunds but it they didn’t even give the opening act a chance it sounds like they got there with an attitude. Hopefully Chicago show will be better for Charlie this time around.

  • okkkkk Formerly Known As ok

    Anyone who really expected a coke head to put together a great show within a matter of weeks got exactly what they deserved. All one had to do was sample the live stream he did on the internet to understand that this dude NEEDS drugs. He is so incredibly boring and disoriented, how one finds him entertaining outside scripted lines is beyond me.
