Charlie Sheen gets his own Comedy Central roast


LOS ANGELES — Hollywood bad boy Charlie Sheen has gone from “winning” to roasting.

The controversial former star of “Two and a Half Men” will be the next target — er, honoree — of a Comedy Central roast.

The event will be taped in Los Angeles on Sept. 10 and air Sept. 19.

“Charlie has assured us that nothing will be off
limits in this roast,” said Kent Alterman, the network’s head of
programming and production.

Said Sheen in a statement: “You could say I’ve been
providing kindling for this roast for a while. It’s time to light it up.
It’s going to be epic.”
