''[[http://www.youtube.com/thetommywishow The Tommy Wi-Show]]'' is a WebOriginal comedy series found on {{Machinima}}'s Website/YouTube channel directed by Payman Benz and starring infamous filmmaker Creator/TommyWiseau, creator of ''Film/TheRoom'' as T.W. and Brock [=LaBorde=] as Alien.

The show's premise is that at the start of every episode, an unnamed alien working for a mysterious council abducts "T.W." to a secret moonbase, and forces him to play a video game for some unknown purpose. Unfortunately, T.W.'s video game skills seem to be somewhat lacking. HilarityEnsues.

Reaction to this seems to be split down the middle. While fans of the show seem to enjoy watching Tommy Wiseau being...Tommy Wiseau, detractors feel like this is nothing more than a cheap attempt to cash in a cult icon's popularity.

You can buy the Season 1 DVD [[http://www.studio8.net/store/wishow/ here.]]

Not to be confused with the WebVideo/NostalgiaCritic skit.
!!Games that T.W. has played (in order of episodes):
!!!Season 1
* ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9''
* ''VideoGame/DeadSpace2''
* ''VideoGame/DukeNukemForever''
* ''VideoGame/DeadRising2''

!!Tropes this series has:

* AlienAbduction
* CloudCuckooLander: ''T.W.'' The ''Alien'' acts and sounds more human than him!
* EpicFail: Pretty much the main source of humor in the show besides Wiseau's mannerisms. For example, in the ''VideoGame/DeadSpace2'' episode he couldn't even ''leave the first room''.
* HairReboot: At the end of Episode 7, Alien undoes T.W.'s new haircut.
* {{Homage}}: The moonbase design is pretty reminiscent of [[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 MST3K]].
* HypocriticalHumor: While playing ''Driver'', Tommy accuses the alien of having a weird accent, which gives us some insight on how he perceives the world.
* JerkAss: The Alien. How much of one he can be varies within episodes.
* LampshadeHanging: Happens all over the place in episode 10, almost all of it coming [[GenreSavvy from T.W.]]
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: The unnamed alien is called "Alien" by T.W. and is referred to as "Alien" in the credits.
* TheStinger: Each episode ends with T.W. reciting a MemeticMutation.
* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: T.W., of course.
