Charlie Sheen offers cash incentives for applause

It seems like Charlie Sheen‘s old habit of paying people to love him extends far beyond the context of prostitutes – now he’s paying his audience to applaud.  Charlie had a rough night on Friday during his first show in New York, where the audience was back to their old heckling and booing routine.  As a result, ticket prices for the second show plummeted, and Charlie decided to improvise with the audience instead of sticking to his script.

Audience members at the second show started out hostile, but when one man asked Charlie for money, he reached into a bag, pulled out a wad of cash, and gave the man $100, asking, “will you applaud for me now?”  The crowd erupted in cheers, and Sheen was given a standing ovation at the end.
