Charlie Sheen signs on for 'Comedy Central Roast'

For the kind of skewering that's more recently been saved for the likes of Donald Trump, Joan Rivers and David Hasselhoff, Charlie Sheen is officially set to be the next roastee in a new special, the network announced Tuesday.

"The Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen," taping on Saturday, Sept. 10, in Los Angeles, will feature the nation's top comedians taking aim at the major headline-making star.

"You could say I've been providing kindling for this Roast for a while," said Charlie Sheen. "It's time to light it up. It's going to be epic."

"Charlie has assured us that nothing will be off limits in this Roast... which scares even us," said Comedy Central original programming head Kent Alterman.

The only thing scarier would have been if they tried to pass off his "Violent Torpedo of Truth" as a stand-up comedy special.

"The Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen" will air on Monday, Sept. 19, at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
