The first couple of clips from the upcoming Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen have hit the internet, and it looks like they are batting .500.

The show actually filmed last weekend, but won't hit the air until next Monday, September 19th, at 10 pm EST. With this roast, Charlie Sheen becomes one in a long line of people given the "honor" by Comedy Central, including William Shatner, Bob Saget, Joan Rivers and Pamela Anderson.

In the first clip from the upcoming show, roastmaster Seth MacFarlane (of Family Guy fame) reads Charlie Sheen's obituary. Yes, Sheen is still alive, but MacFarlane says that he has a copy ready, since his death is imminent. This clip is the "hit" of the two - check it out below:

The next preview clip to be released shows roaster Jeffeyy Ross discussing Sheen's penchant for (paid) company. Usually, Ross is one of the funniest people at these roasts, but his jokes about "whoreclosing" fall flat. I'm sure it's just a weak part in his routine - it'll get better. And I think he's dressed as Gaddafi, so that's a plus:

It looks like Comedy Central and Sheen himself are going to be riding the social media promotion pretty hard in the week leading up to the premiere. Both have already started tweeting with the hashtag #SheenRoast -

Another odd item from the Sheen Roast: Apparently Steve-O of Jackass fame was in attendance and decided that it would be a good idea to run his face into Mike Tyson's fist. He tweeted about it later -

Tonight I asked Mike Tyson for a black eye and I wound up with two black eyes and a broken nose. Thanks so much, Brother! @MikeTyson 2 days ago via WhoSay · powered by @socialditto

He provided this explanation is a blog post -

I should explain how this happened. I told Charlie Sheen that I was so grateful to be a part of his roast that I was going to attempt to get a black I from Mike Tyson. I dove face-first into Mike Tyson's fist, although it was my forehead that landed on it that first time. It wasn't until the end of the show that I was allowed to give it another proper try. It took two more tries at the end of the show, but I ended up getting it done. As a matter of fact, I broke my nose badly in the process...

And this picture says it all -

If these clips and Jackass activity say anything about the roast, it's bound to be an interesting show to say the least.
