Charlie Sheen Roast: Exclusive Interviews With Steve-O, William Shatner, Mike Tyson & More (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

The Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen was, in a word, winning. But don't just take our word for it.

You'll have to wait until September 19 -- coincidentally, the same night as Charlie's funeral on "Two And A Half Men" -- to see the roast in its entirety, but we've got some exclusive red carpet interviews to tide you over.

We talked to roasters Mike Tyson, William Shatner, Steve-O, Amy Schumer, Patrick Warburton and more before and after the show and got the scoop on their preparations and predictions for the highly anticipated night of comedy.

Of course we had to ask Tyson how Sheen would fare in the ring, hear which roaster Warburton thinks has the most bravado, and ask Schumer how she prepared for her first roast. We talked to former Sheen co-stars Kristi Swanson and Michael Boatman about his resilient nature and even chatted with the "Workaholics" guys about meeting Charlie "Tigerblood" Sheen for the first time (hint: he demanded they call him "The Charlie").

Watch a cut of all the red carpet action above and check out our live blog from the night for more interviews and teasers. The roast airs on Comedy Central on Sept. 19 at 10:00 p.m. EST.
