Dennis Miller Praises New Rant King Charlie Sheen

Leave it to comedian-turned-radio-pundit Dennis Miller to fire back at Charlie Sheen with a reference as esoteric as many of those spewed by the embattled actor.

Appearing last night as he occasionally does on The O’Reilly Factor, the Santa Barbara resident revealed that he has been thoroughly enjoying the new king of going off on a rant, and compared Sheen to a deceased French playwright. “I find Sheen uproariously funny,” Miller raved. “I think he’s an absurdist supreme. I don’t think I’ve seen a farceur like this since Georges Feydeau at the turn of the 20th century with his plays…”


“Georges who?” replied O’Reilly. Born in 1862, Feydeau became the talk of Paris for his 60 odd farces, many of which mocked the city’s “demi-monde.” His first acclaimed production, 1892′s Champignol in Spite of Himself, could just as easily be swapped out for Sheen. Because the actor is, ultimately, “Charlie in Spite of Himself.”
