Charlie Sheen's Bizarre Invitation to Chuck Lorre to Join Him Onstage
At his first Radio City Music Hall show Friday, Charlie Sheen invited Two and a Half Men co-creator Chuck Lorre to join him on stage for his next NYC show Sunday night.
"Of course, I want my job back so you guys can keep watching the best f**king sitcom in the world,” said Sheen, who was fired from CBS' Two and a Half Men earlier this year (he is suing CBS and Warner Bros. for $100 million).
Sheen started the show about 30 minutes late.
Like he’s done in previous shows, he told the audience about his early showbiz memories and a coke-fueled flight to San Francisco with actor Nic Cage.
He also shared his version of what happened at the Plaza Hotel in NYC last fall (he was accused of trashing his suite with an adult film star).
At one point, he took aim at ex Denise Richards, telling the audience that he was threatened with legal action if he trashed her on stage, reports TMZ.
Among the audience members: The Real Housewives of New York star Kelly Bensimon, who told THR: "It's obviously a publicity tour because he wants his show back, but I'm confused. I'm not a doctor, but I think he's playing us."
At one point during the show, a shirtless guy and a wannabe “goddess” raced down the aisle and got hauled off by bouncers. Radio City show organizers had posted a sign at the venue stating that all hecklers will be removed.
During the show, there was tepid applause and some boos, but Sheen's latest on-stage stint ended quietly.
Before leaving the show, Sheen told the crowd, "I love you New York ... you're the best crowd ever. Well, some of you," according to TMZ.
Interestingly, Sheen's former Men costar, Jon Cryer, has his own production going on across town: He is appearing in a staged concert performance of the 1970 Stephen Sondheim-George Furth musical Company.
