Charlie Sheen's Speaking Tour: Crazy, or Smart Moneymaking?

| by

Okay, so Charlie Sheen lost his job on Two and A Half Men and everyone thinks he is bat s**t crazy, but seriously the guy knows how to make money.  It has me wondering if he is crazy like a fox.   Charlie is taking himself and all is craziness on tour in ”Charlie Sheen LIVE: My Violent Torpedo of Truth and Charlie is set to earn $7 million for one month of 1.5 hours shows where he basically sits in a chair and talks. Ain’t life grand!

Everyone wants to meet Charlie, even I am trying to score tickets to his event in Toronto – cross your fingers for me :-) Now if I wanted to really drop some serious cash I could even get to meet Charlie; apparently for a $750 ticket price, there is a special meet and greet package.  Included is one premium reserved ticket located within the first 10 rows of the theater, an exclusive meet-and-greet with Charlie, a personal photograph with the star, an autographed 8-by-10 photo, a numbered limited-edition tour poster and an official meet-and-greet laminate.

TMZ further reports:

Sources connected with the concert tour tell us … the deal is for Charlie to perform on 21 dates. He’ll get 85% of the profits, with Live Nation getting the remaining 15%. Charlie’s cut is projected to average between $250,000 – $275,000 for each show. And there’s more … Charlie will get additional $$$ for after-parties and merchandising with 200,000 pieces of merchandise already shipped out for the show. In all, we’re told Charlie will pull in $7 million in a month. The show will last 1 hour and 15 minutes. It’s essentially Charlie doing comedy in a chair, so the overhead is minimal.

$7 million in a month; he is winning, duh! I guess it just shows crazy pays off. I have the feeling Charlie might just be crazy like a fox, and this tour will just build him a bigger fan/cult base, and he will return to La La land with lots of offers. What do you think? Am I crazy for wanting to see Charlie?
