The Hollywood Reporter

Charlie Sheen faced the music on Saturday, allowing himself to be the subject of a Comedy Central roast in his honor. While the special is set to air on Monday, Aug. 19, the network has released a first look at Seth MacFarlane and Jeff Ross’ wickedly funny performances.

“And now, ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to bring out the man of the hour,” said Roastmaster MacFarlane while introducing Sheen. “He went from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off to having every day off, please welcome the rock star from Mars, Charlie Sheen.”

The introductory clip also features Slash, who rides to the stage on a “crazy train” alongside Sheen.

Once the former Two and a Half Men actor takes his seat on a throne, MacFarlane launches into his highly publicized battle with drugs and alcohol by reading a fake obituary.

“We all know there’s a good chance Charlie will be dead soon so I wrote an obituary,” MacFarlane jokes. “Charlie Sheen, who became a tabloid fixture due to his problems with drugs and alcohol, was found dead in his apartment – actually, you know what, I kind of actually just copied Amy Winehouse’s obituary. I only had to change three things, though: The sex of the deceased, the location of the body and part that says, ‘a talent that will be missed.’”

Easily providing some of the best jokes of the night, Ross took the podium dressed as Moammar Gaddafi to say a few words about the troubled actor and his famous family members.S

“You’re the black sheep of a family responsible for three Mighty Ducks movies,” he zinged. “You make your own father ashamed that he shares the same fake name as you. Charlie you should be a-sheen-ed of yourself.”

Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez said they would have been here tonight, but they had a family obligation,” Ross went on to quip -- a joke that Sheen would later acknowledge during his last word.
