London: Charlie Sheen, who was sacked from his former show ‘Two and a Half Men’ has signed up for Comedy Central’s renowned ‘roast’.

The actor is set to be the star of the next edition of the Comedy Central show where a celebrity gets “honoured” with merciless crude ribbings from various comedians and friends in front of a live audience.

Sheen who was replaced by Ashton Kutcher in the ‘Two and a Half Men’, said he is looking forward to the “roasting”.

“You could say that I’ve been providing the kindling for a roast for a while. It’s time to light it up. It’s going to be epic,” the Daily Mail quoted Sheen as saying.

The show will air on September 19, the same night Two and a Half Men kick off the new season with Kutcher’s first appearance.
