CHARLIE Sheen is to appear in a 'Comedy Central Roast'.

The troubled star - who is currently unemployed - is to be subjected to an evening of comic heckling on the one-off show, which will air on the same night as Ashton Kutcher makes his debut on 'Two and a Half Men', the series which Charlie used to star in until he was fired earlier this year.

While the comedians and stars set to poke fun at the 45-year-old actor are yet to be announced, Charlie has confirmed no topics will be "off-limits" on the show.

Kent Alterman, Comedy Central's head of programming, said: "Charlie has assured us that nothing will be off limits in this Roast, which scares even us."

However, Charlie is well aware of the plethora of material his turbulent personal life will provide for those taking part in the episode.

He added: "You could say I've been providing kindling for this 'Roast' for a while. It's time to light it up. It's going to be epic."

Previous stars subjected to the 'Comedy Central Roast' include David Hasselhoff, Joan Rivers and Donald Trump.

The show will be filmed on September 10 and air on September 19.
