Sheen turns show boos to cheers

After being heckled and booed in Detroit, Charlie Sheen made some changes to his road show for Sunday night - and this time, it ended with a standing ovation.

Sheen used a talk show-style format at his Chicago show, with a master of ceremonies asking the actor questions.

The interviewer, who didn't identify himself, kept Sheen on track and gave the actor a chance to make some barbed comments.

Some audience members said the second performance on Sheen's My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not an Option tour wasn't outstanding, but at least it had amusing moments. And Sheen drew cheers throughout the show, which began and ended with a standing ovation.

During the show at the historic 3,600-seat Chicago Theatre, Sheen smoked cigarettes and answered questions about his marriages, his career and his life with the women he calls his "goddesses."

Sheen also had some snappy comebacks for the interviewer.

Asked how many times he had been married, Sheen retorted: "Seven-thousand. That's why I'm broke."

Asked why he's "paid for sex" in the past, Sheen responded: "Because I had millions to blow. I ran out of things to buy."

Sheen also seemed to have a better rapport with the Chicago crowd. As the show began, some in the crowd began chanting "Detroit sucks."

When one audience member asked Sheen to take off his shirt, he swapped his T-shirt for a collared shirt thrown at him by a larger man in the audience. He proceeded to wear the too big shirt for the rest of the show and referred throughout the show to the man who had given it to him.
