Charlie Sheen brings his bizarre act to Toronto

Actor toasts dead man’s ashes during raucous performance

by

Human wrecking-ball Charlie Sheen brought his sold-out My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is not an Option act to Toronto’s Massey Hall on Thursday night, closing the night by toasting the ashes of widow Wendy Newman’s deceased husband. Toronto comedian Russell Peters introduced Sheen to the raucous audience and conversed with the troubled actor and web phenomenon for an hour, until Sheen invited Newman onstage. Newman told the audience that her husband, Paul, died of a heart attack and that she coped with the loss by watching DVD’s of Two and a Half Men. Sheen and Newman then toasted Paul’s ashes. The show then ended abruptly as a video of Snoop Dogg played. Many show-goers were left confused and annoyed. “What the hell was that,” said one audience member. “I don’t know what was going on during that whole show and then it just ends like that?” Sheen will continue his Canadian tour with a show in Vancouver, B.C., on Friday night.
