Charlie Sheen Roast Preview: Sheen Makes His Entrance, Ross & MacFarlane Bring It (VIDEO)
The Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen was taped Sunday night in LA, and all early indications are that it was a rip-roaring, hilariously mean affair that should finally let America feel less guilty about its unhealthy obsession with a self-destructive, past-his-prime TV star.
While live blogs of the event are already available on the Web from those who were able to attend the taping, the rest of us will have to wait a week until it airs on Mon., Sept. 19 at 10PM ET.
But we can look at at a few clips Comedy Central released today as a mini-preview. RoastMaster Seth MacFarlane introduces Sheen to the stage with a relatively tame one-liner, considering what's to come: "He went from 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off' to having every day off ... please welcome Charlie Sheen!"
In another preview clip, RoastMaster General Jeffrey Ross takes the stage in a Colonel Ghaddafi costume and hits Sheen with a few barbs. "You're the black sheep of a family responsible for three 'Might Ducks' movies!" Later, MacFarlane reads Sheen his obituary.
We're pretty psyched to see where the proceedings go from here. Check out the preview clips after the jump.
