Jeffrey Ross Says Charlie Sheen Roast Will Be An Intervention, With brother Emilio Estevez saying that Charlie Sheen has turned a corner, and now comedian Jeffrey Ross offering that the upcoming roast of the actor will be as therapeutic as it is funny.
In years past, Comedy Central has roasted comedians, musicians, billionaires and David Hasselhoffs…lol, but this September they’ll be taking on their first warlock. It has just been announced that the next Comedy Central Roastee is Charlie Sheen!
Ross gave Entertainment Weekly more insight into what he expects from Sheen’s moment in the comedy crosshairs in September: “These roasts are often therapeutic for a person. These are things he needs to hear. No one deserves to be roasted more than the warlock. I see this as a comedy intervention
The Two and a Half Men zings and tiger-blood barbs will be flying when the Roast tapes in Los Angeles on Saturday, September 10. Then your face will melt off and your children will weep over your exploded body when the big show premieres on Comedy Central on Monday, September 19 at 10/9c.
Here’s what the man himself had to say about the announcement:
“You could say I’ve been providing kindling for this Roast for a while,” said Sheen. “It’s time to light it up. It’s going to be epic.”
Of course, many also want to know how far Sheen’s roast will go in the name of healing. Both the actor and Comedy Central have assured viewers that “nothing will be off limits,” but there is much speculation on if that will also apply to who gets to roast Sheen.
Comedy Central’s head of original programming and production Kent Alterman added:
“Charlie has assured us that nothing will be off limits in this Roast… which scares even us.”
