Of all the roasters on the Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen, there was no bigger surprise than the addition of actress Kate Walsh, who normally plays a prim and proper doctor on Private Practice. Walsh showed off her raunchy side on the special, and shocked everyone in attendance with her off-color humor.

Kate Walsh showed the big boys how it was done during the Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen, which aired to the highest ratings for a roast to date on the network, with an audience of 6.4 million viewers.

The Private Practice star revealed a side of herself that fans never knew, the side that could toss them back with the big boys. Walsh had one of the most memorable lines of the evening, stating 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. It's amazing, after abusing your lungs, liver and kidneys, the only thing you've ever had removed is your kids."


Walsh revealed to USA Today in an interview that, "It was a good exercise in masochism to go up there."

She also revealed that she was admittedly worried about the gig, stating, "I was like, 'Oh my God, what am I doing? I have never done a roast before.' But there are no regrets. You never want to rest on your laurels. You want to keep doing things that terrify you." She also revealed that she started her career in improv.

Walsh also stated to the newspaper, "I do have a little bit of raunch. I'm half Irish after all, so come on!"

At the end of the roast, it was Sheen who had the last laugh. He took the podium and stated, "Once again I come out unscathed. You can't hurt me, I can't kill me. I'm done with the winning because I've already won."
