Actress Kate Walsh revealed a raunchier side Monday night when she took the stage during Charlie Sheen’s roast on Comedy Central.
Walsh, who normally plays a prim and proper doctor on ABC’s Private Practice, joined a gang of entertainers – William Shatner, Seth MacFarlane, Steve-O, and Jon Lovitz, just to name a few – who lined up to skewer Sheen with off-color jokes, insults, and generally untrue stories, all done in good humor.
Despite admittedly having pre-performance jitters, Kate arguably delivered the best line of the night when she said to Sheen:
“I have to say Charlie, you are an incredible medical specimen. I guess that’s the benefits of waking up every morning at the crack of crack” – an obvious jab at Sheen’s drug-littered past.
The jokes got even more personal from there, as Walsh took a shot at Sheen for his trouble at home.
“You know what’s amazing, despite all those years of abusing your lungs, your kidneys, your liver, the only thing you’ve had removed is your kids,” said Walsh, who later revealed that she began her career doing improv comedy.
Following the roast, Kate, 43, told USA Today:
“[I]t was a good exercise in masochism to come up here…You never want to rest on your laurels. You want to keep doing things that terrify you.”
