Charlie Sheen's roast

hjtee hjtee
Did you watch Charlie Sheen's roast last night on Comedy Central? If so, what did you think of it?

Some of the daytime talk shows are now saying that the bits referring to domestic violence were taking it too far, what do you think? Was it funny, or insensitive? How did you feel when you seen his ex wife giggling at those jokes?

(Overall, I thought it was funny, and everything was said with humor, and you have to remember, it's comedy and not how those people feel personally.)

I thought it was funny. It was a roast, they all knew what was going to be talked about.

I watched it. Lots of the jokes were funny, but some went a little too far IMO. But he and his ex wife chose to attend, and should have known what they were in for, so I didn't feel bad for them.

It was uproarious. Going too far and beyond is the point of these roasts. The more offensive, the better. Comedy is one of the greatest forms of free speech.

I didn't watch it, but that's because as Kristi said the point of a roast is to be above and beyond. I just didn't tune in because I loathe Charlie Sheen and generally those roasts are not to my taste. One of those "don't like it, don't watch it" kinds of things.

Additionally, the subjects of the roast do actually negotiate what can and cannot be spoken about - and the roasters are given those parameters as well. This stuff is all regulated very tightly and most people in the room that night are for the most part briefed on what will be going on. So I don't usually "feel bad" for anyone involved because they are briefed before hand. Network television is not a very spontaneous thing - it takes a LOT of long contracts to get all those celebrities up on that stage!

I have not seen or heard one single funny joke. I wrote over ten pages of jokes, contacted comedy central and they never followed up. I will get my stuff on youtube and let America Decide.

samples: You know it is going to be a party when a Dr. is giving shots at the door and the favors are from KY and Trojan.

Charlie love breakfast. In fact he stays up all night, every night so he can have it before he goes to bed. Charlie is the only guy I know that gets his jelly delivered fresh from Kentucky. If 50 gallon drums. And they are'nt bongos!

Charlie is helping the airlines save in these economically strapped times. When in they fly to LAX a coach drops the Female Flight attendants from AA, UA and Delta directly at Charlies house, the guys go to a motel six in pamona. Charlie has also earned his wings; he has part taken in the 30,000 ft club more than any frequent fucker alive.

There is always something to lib ate at Charlies, he lives between a Winery and several Bud plants.

Charlies motto, "a Stud in a Lumber Yard, Never gets Nailed".

Charlie; When in Kentucky You are a Thoroughbred,
When in your house, You are throw in bed
When in a Lumber yard, your are a sire among Studs
and when in Rome; you are to be claimed "Caesar"

I missed it! Generally it#s not my thing, as I don't like that sort of put-down humour, but I was interested in seeing this!

There were definitely gems in there, plus it was hosted by Seth McFarlane and he's a hottie. Yum!

However the only thing that I really found in poor taste was Amy (whatever-her-last-nam e-is)'s joke towards Steve-O regarding Ryan Dunn. I mean, I know that everyone there is signing up with the full knowledge that they will be made fun of, but that took it too far. I didn't think it was funny or called for. In very poor taste.

When it comes to comedians, I think anything they say for shock value shouldn't be taken too seriously. I watch all the roasts and find them entertaining.

I don't go out of my way to watch the roasts. They typically feature decent jokes, but they also typically feature second-rate comedians. There are, of course, exceptions to this, but not many.
