Sneak peek: Charlie Sheen roast is done, ready to be served
Like one of his own torpedoes of truth, Charlie Sheen is barreling down the promotional pike for his upcoming Comedy Central roast.
Taken to task by the likes of Kate Walsh, roastmaster general Jeff Ross and newcomers including Anthony Jeselnik, Sheen was a good sport at the taping Saturday at the Sony Pictures lot in Los Angeles.
"How much blow can Charlie Sheen do? Enough to kill two and a half men," cracked Jon Lovitz, his being among the mildest of countless references to Sheen's drug use, his predilection for escorts and his history of violence.
In first-look video from the special, to air Sept. 19 on Comedy Central immediately after CBS' reboot of "Two and A Half Men" starring Ashton Kutcher, Ross takes a jab at Charlie's family.
"You make your own father ashamed that he shares the same fake name as you," he said.
