''[[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 [[LoveItorHateIt 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''
* ''VideoGame/DriverSanFrancisco''

!!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.
