Charlie Sheen Cheats Smoking Law in Toronto

4/14/2011 9:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen just found a way to skirt Toronto's strict anti-smoking laws during his show there -- lighting up an electronic cigarette.


Shortly after Charlie hit the stage in Toronto's Massey Hall ... our spies say he bragged about not having an ashtray and said he didn't need any cigs. However, a few minutes later he sparked up one of those electronic cigarettes.

Massey Hall management told TMZ they might shut down the show if Charlie lit up on stage because they could face up to $100,000 in fines from the city.

Charlie's been smoking almost non-stop during every other stop on the tour.

We're told he did light up some real tobacco though ... in front of fans who gathered outside the theater right before the show. 


By the way, so far so good ... the crowd inside is loving Sheen's act.

UPDATE 6:07PM PDT: Charlie just thumbed his nose at that letter from WB ... telling the crowd, "Negotiations with 'Two and a Half Men' are moving forward. We need to get in a room and fix this thing ... give the people what they want."

Stay tuned ...

Sheen Returns to State, Minus Goddess, Plus Comic
By Roger Catlin on April 17, 2011 10:27 PM | Permalink | Comments (0)

Charlie Sheen's "Violent Torpedo of Truth" landed a second time in Connecticut Sunday, this time with less of a thud than before.

The tour by the outspoken TV star who was fired from his sitcom has done but nothing but change in the little more than two weeks it's been on the road. It's less of a show, though, than an appearance, where paying fans can see him in person and many of them can spend their time drunkenly heckling him nonstop.

"People come to these shows expecting something," Sheen marveled out loud soon after he wandered out on stage a half hour late, wearing a T shirt with a dollar sign on it and a backwards baseball cap. "But I never promised anything."

And so far, he's largely delivered nothing. People ask questions, he rants about the ex wife like a crank you'd avoid in a bar. And his "goddesses" prance out to toss some free merchandise to the bewildered crowd.

Sunday, though, there was just one goddess, though and this may be the tabloid headline from the appearance. While Natalie Kenly was still around to make her appearance, Sheen said Rachel Oberlin had fled the tour in the middle of the night, pleading homesickness.

But, Sheen added, "when she comes back is up to me not her. How about that?"

The important thing for the "show," was that Jeffrey Ross, who had been special guest at Saturday's show in Atlantic City, also came to the Connecticut casino to considerably enliven the show, give it some shape, and to rip Sheen more mercilessly than critics have been.

"I heard there was a bomb scare - I came as quick as I could," Ross said. "This is like a comedy intervention, Charlie."

Addressing the crowd from a podium not unlike the one he uses as a Comedy Central roastmaster, Ross said, "Greetings enablers!" to those attending what he called the "Apparently the Novelty Hasn't Worn Off Yet Tour."

And to Sheen: "If you're winning, something is wrong with the scoreboard."

He had his work cut out for him. "How do you roast a meltdown?" he wondered aloud.

"Two and a half men?" he said, referencing Sheen's former show. "That's how many people are left in the theater after your show is over."

Though Sheen said later "I fully intend on going back to that show," Ross let him know: "Mubarak has a better chance of getting his job back."

Some yelled that they wanted to hear more from Sheen, but those who have seen the show know that Sheen doesn't have all that much to say. And Ross at least knew how to put a halfway entertaining show together.

It was his idea to bring up 10 people from the audience to face both his insult humor and to ask a question to Sheen. Leave it to people to entertain themselves: One woman of a certain age kept doing cartwheels.

"You're a cougar!" Ross told her. "Freddie Cougar!"

A younger woman flashed her breasts in hopes of getting them autographed (she succeeded).

Then Ross took the role of talk show host, reading a long email from Michael Moore cheering Sheen as the last man to do what the hell he likes, and asking about some of Sheen's past movies, from "Wall Street" and "Platoon" to "Grizzly 2," a film he did instead of "Karate Kid."

Minus the YouTube videos that had been much of the entertainment in past shows, it was a more balanced and satisfying evening than before. But I can't imagine anyone going to see it again.
