Sheen hits Chicago Theatre, Obama declares, Southwest Airlines, Elton on SNL and Chicago summer camps

8:27 p.m.: Show definitely has a different feel than last night. Instead of Charlie on stage by himself, he has an interviewer of sorts asking him questions.
8:33 p.m.: Charlie took off his shirt after someone in the crowd yelled, "Get naked." He traded shirts with a guy from the crowd who was much larger than him. Oh, forgot to mention -- after last night's performance, no opening comic this time.
8:42 p.m.: Nothing too exciting. Telling stories, including the one about the first time he smoked weed ... with Chris Penn in Malibu.
8:50 p.m: The show is in intermission. Much more structured than last night's. So far, no booing.
9:14 p.m.: And we're back! Sheen's got a fresh cig and talking about a party he went to once with Mick Jagger and Eddie Van Halen.
9:20 p.m.: Charlie says he owes Heidi Fleiss $2 million. He tells the interviewer he pays for sex because he has millions.
9:25 p.m.: Charlie says he was supposed to be in "The Karate Kid," but his dad told him to do a lesser movie instead. "My dad has great advice."
9:30 p.m.: How's this for an about face -- Charlie said he would go back to "Two and Half Men," but he did say the people who run it are blood suckers. But he called Jon Cryer a "rock star."
9:45 p.m.: Charlie is now reading a letter from one of the goddesses.
(Show ends shortly afterward).
