Charlie Sheen, Juggalo

After a successful run of his debut “Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not An Option” stand-up tour, “comedian” Charlie Sheen decided to further expand his comedic brand to a whole new market; when contacted by Insane Clown Posse frontman Violent J to “introduce acts and perform his comedy stylings” at the 2011 Gathering of the Juggalos, the actor jumped at the opportunity to finally have his name spread to a mainstream audience. Armed with nothing but the clothes on his back and “courage” (blow) to spare, Sheen headed to the quaint village of Cave-In-Rock, Illinois, where the festivities were to be held.

Who's the bigger clown?

Arriving fashionably late to the grounds Saturday night, Sheen went straight to the main stage to present the next act, rapper Tech N9ne. The attendees took a short break from boasting about who has the best mime paint and fraternizing over Faygo to give the special guest a warm greeting, Juggalo style. We’ve seen how this played out for Tila Tequila and Method Man, both former recipients of their trademark hospitality. Everything began as expected: celebrity takes the stage, Juggalos receive him with woop woop. But lo and behold, in a stunning display of catlike reflexes (undoubtedly fueled by tiger’s blood) and uncharacteristically calm demeanor, Charlie dodges and even manages to catch two of the missiles thrown at him:

We don’t know what surprises us most: Charlie being mentally present, coherent and, as much as it pains us to admit it, humorously witty; Charlie still insisting on wearing a silly baseball cap; or the crowd appreciating/not caring enough of his presence to disregard any further pursuit. Oh wait, we do know: the fact that CHARLIE SHEEN WENT TO THE GATHERING OF THE JUGGALOS. Sheen has been consistently successful at having his face plastered in every single media outlet since his “departure” from Two and a Half Men, and this could easily be just another stoop he’s taken to remain in the spotlight. We don’t know what the “maSheen” will do next, but we predict that this event will be mentioned more than once come the Comedy Central Roast in September.
