Charlie Sheen’s “improv” experience with Drew Carey and friends should have warned live audiences

So that Charlie Sheen clip on GSN's Drew Carey's Improv-A-Ganza aired last night.

I wish this had aired months ago. Because then, anyone who wondered about Charlie Sheen's live comedy skills could have seen that he had none. And anyone who wanted to help Charlie Sheen mount a live comedy tour could have seen this and realized he had no skills to sustain a paid audience of thousands. It's that bad. And this is an easy improv game.

Look. I listened to Charlie Sheen talk live on the radio overnight with Boston DJs Toucher and Rich, and he sounded downright friendly. Sane. Even slightly amusing. But if he wants people to pay money to see him, he should at least be professional enough to try to mount a professional show. Because this is not that.

Roll the clip!
