Web Video: The Tommy Wi-Show
He Plays All The Video Games So You Don't Have To... Because He Has To.

The Tommy Wi-Show is a Web Original comedy series found on Machinima's YouTube channel directed by Payman Benz and starring infamous filmmaker Tommy Wiseau, creator of The Room 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 videogame for some unknown purpose. Unfortunately, T.W.'s videogame skills seem to be somewhat lacking. Hilarity Ensues.

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.

Also has a twitter page and a facebook page.

You can buy the Season 1 DVD here.

Not to be confused with the Nostalgia Critic skit.
