Charlie Sheen's roving one-man show hasn't exactly lived up to its comedic expectations. In fact, along the way My Violent Torpedo of Truth has been called a train wreck and a total bomb, and Sheen has even been booed offstage

But in his stop in San Francisco last weekend, Sheen reportedly had at least one shining moment, when the actor turned epic ranter donated $20,000 to Bryan Stow, the Giants fan who has been in a coma since he was beaten outside Dodger Stadium in March.

And that's nothing to boo Sheen about!

Last week, we told you that Sheen planned to donate any proceeds from merchandise sold at his show in San Francisco. He reportedly sold $9,000 worth, but then managed to get more than $4,000 in donations from his fans that night.

Sheen then put in $7,000 of his own money, according to news outlets.

Just in case you missed it, here is a clip from Saturday's show at the Masonic Center.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
