The Winning Ends for Charlie Sheen as Live Show Bombs

It seems defeat is an option. Hot on the heels of Charlie Sheen’s widely panned live stage show, My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not an Option, the actor has conceded he would return to Two and a Half Men if asked.

Charlie Sheen’s foray into live entertainment didn’t go exactly to plan. The actor was booed on the opening night of his new stage show in Detroit. The booing followed audience members demanding a refund and people walking out mid-show. Sheen did not seem perturbed by the underwhelming reaction, saying, “I already got your money, dude.” Classy.

Sheen admitted the show is a work-in-progress and needs tweaking. He told E! News, “There's a couple things here I've got to f--king work out I don't know if I start the show alone and it turns into this [a Q&A format] or I just say with this 'cause it's f--king working and we'll f--king return to it if I don't.” By the time the troubled actor hit Chicago for his second performance the show had been thoroughly changed. Gone was the opening stand-up act, YouTube clips, and rap bits. Instead the show focused on the Q&A format, much to the delight of fans. Chicago actually gave Sheen a standing ovation.

As ticket sales for future dates drop off, Sheen has admitted he’d be back on Two and a Half Men if asked. He said, “If they say, 'Hey, here's your job back,' I'll go back to work. I signed a f***ing contract. I'm a man of my word, unlike those f***ing trolls.”

Winning? Maybe not.
