    Charlie Sheen, poor guy, recently lost his multimillion-dollar gig portraying pretty much himself on TV’s top-rated sitcom.

    What’s an out-of-work actor to do to make money but take his show on the road? Worked for Conan O’Brien.

    Sheen just announced that his comedy tour — “My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not An Option,” and is there any other type of torpedo than violent? — plays a Dallas date April 27, and tickets go on sale Saturday.

    Gotta hand it to Sheen, through, to keep working at working after getting fired. Think of it as his attempt to stay off the unemployment dole.

    The live tour might do boffo box office or it might bleed red tiger’s blood, but Sheen’s near-nonstop barrage of interviews and Tweets is either the symptom of a massive mental meltdown or signs that he’s the smartest self-promoter on the planet.

    The Violent Torpedo show might indicate which the case may be.
