Charlie Sheen’s publicist deserves a raise. The Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen looked to be just another exploitation of Sheen’s mental and physical unraveling. But, surprisingly, he comes across as serene and normal in comparison to some of the trainwrecks featured on the program, which premiered last night but will be re-broadcast numerous times.

I can only hope Mike Tyson was drunk. Otherwise he’s more pitiful than previously imagined.

Don’t get me wrong, this wreck of a roast was funny. Comedy Central roasts are typically hilarious. Last night’s wasn’t among the funniest but it includes numerous laugh-out-loud moments. Whether you think this is funny or crass depends on how you feel about seeing people figuratively disemboweled.

Personally, I love watching B-list celebrities slice and dice.

Where else are you going to see William Shatner giving career advice to Sheen by saying, “Don’t stick yourself in some unfunny piece of shit that’s never going to amount to anything. I am, of course, talking about Amy Shumer [another presenter].”

Shumer had plenty of her own zingers.

Comedian Jeffrey Ross stole the show with his piercing jokes, and said afterward that the Sheen roast differs from previous episodes because “this one was real — very, very honest, brutally honest.”

Comedian Patrice O’Neal seemed stunned during the program, and shell-shocked afterward, telling the Huffington Post: “I just didn’t expect how mean everybody was.”

That’s entertainment!
