According to a newspaper report, disgruntled actor Charlie Sheen’s “My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not an Option” tour started in Detroit Saturday night with a thud, leaving a dissatisfied audience and an unfulfilled request for a refund.
A Detroit Free Press story described the audience as “often dissatisfied” and added “most of the crowd wasn’t entertained by the loose and disorganized attempt.”
The show consisted of Sheen delivering a monologue, playing videos and chatting with the audience.
Noting that Sheen often appeared worried that he was losing the audience, the story says he told a heckler “Sorry, dude, already got your money.”
Said the event’s host:
“It was bad. People were upset, but I don’t think they knew what to expect. He’s a movie star, not a stand-up comic.”
The tour hit Chicago Sunday night and will move to Cleveland Tuesday.
