Charlie Sheen critiques shows: 'Maybe I just needed a bigger challenge'

In an exclusive interview with E! News, Charlie Sheen has offered a critique of his first two stand-up shows. And taken a few shots at Michigan. God love him.

"There's a couple things here I've got to f---ing work out," Sheen said. "I don't know if I start the show alone and it turns into this [a Q&A format] or I just say with this 'cause it's f---ing working and we'll f---ing return to it if I don't."

The star of Wall Street, Major League and Platoon said he reworked his show entirely after he booed in Detroit.

"Yeah, we talked about it on the bus coming back, tons of input, then when I got back to the hotel and I wrote, we started writing, just to get some thoughts out, some feelings out, just some stuff that would be interesting, just stories, you know, themes, whatever, just bullet points," said Sheen. "Maybe I just, you know, needed a bigger challenge."

What can fans expect? A lot more Q&A.

"We've already got [questions] submitted and we say, you know, so-and-so from f---ing Bakersfield or Loserville, f---ing Michigan, wants to know," he said.

Chicago fans lustily cheered "Detroit sucks!" before Sheen's appearance. And Charlie was more than happy to embrace the mitten-state bashing, telling one disruptive fan to "Go back to Detroit, dude" during the show. Sheen's next tour stop is Tuesday night in Cleveland. He's scheduled to perform in Tampa at the St. Pete Times Forum on April 22.
