Boo Charlie Sheen off stage once and he listens. The 45-year-old former Two and a Half Men star took the stage Sunday night in Chicago for the second stop on his “My Violent Torpedo of Truth/ Defeat Is Not an Option Tour” and after being booed off stage in Detroit with a less than “winning” reaction from the audience, the unemployed actor changed up the format of his live show.
According to ABC News, Charlie dropped the comedic opening act and the rambling multimedia presentation that he debuted with in Detroit and switched to an interview-style format in Chicago, with an MC asking him questions about his life and career for 90 minutes.
Charlie talked about living with his “goddesses” and redeemed his “troll” comment by calling his Two and a Half Men co-star Jon Cryer a “rock star.”
The actor also got a great reception from the crowd in Chicago, who heckled Detroit for not welcoming the “winning” actor, shouting “Detroit sucks!” as they waited for the warlock to take the stage.
Charlie shared the story of the first time he tried drugs and also opened up about his marriages and his legal problems.
He also explained why he prefers to pay for sex.
“I have millions to blow, and I ran out of stuff to buy,” he said, smoking throughout the show.
Charlie reportedly stayed up all night on the bus ride from Detroit to Chicago reworking his show.
He ended last night’s Chicago leg with a poem, which read, “I stand before you oh captain oh captain to most humbly praise you for this radical ripple this single cast stone in the stagnant puddle that is the known universe. Your weapon of choice is wordplay via Dr. Seuss play.”
Lets hope his new format works. Now, reports are suggesting that ticket sales for the 20-city tour are suffering in light of the bad reviews of the Detroit appearance.
