    Main cast 

Tom Pike

"I've never written anything like this before. I didn't want to be a screenwriter, I wanted to be a playwright!"

The main character and creator of the vlogs.

  • Bad Boss: To Zack.
    "If you get in front of the camera, I will stab you, I will actually stab you!"
  • Butt-Monkey: Episode 10 pretty much solidifies Tom as this, what with him getting yelled at by The Administrator for something Dana said.
  • Hypocritical Humor:
    Tom: (to Dana) Look, if you keep assuming that someone can't do anything right, sooner or later, you're gonna be proven wrong.
    Zack: Yeah!
    Tom: God, I wish I had some duct tape right now.
    Zack: Why?
    Tom: To shut you up!

Dana Shaw

"[I'm going on camera] because you need me to. I mean, Tom, you're... pretty hopeless. You're really hopeless, actually. You're like a lost little puppy, and whenever someone tries to help you out, you crap on the rug and bite their baby. But, see, that's where I can come in. I can be there with the rabies shots, and the carpet cleaner... and your incompetence means that I can actually make a difference here."

The producer, eventually promoted to character.

  • Deadpan Snarker: She frequently snarks at Tom or Zack, but her jabs at Shannon really take the cake.
    Shannon: You just don't understand anything about love.
    Dana: Oh, my heart. She breaks. (makes tear outline on cheek)

Zack Wallnau

The cameraman.

    Supporting/recurring cast 

Mr. Administrator

"You have angered us, Mr. Pike, for the last time! Your next video will be a work of genius or we will SHUT YOU DOWN. DO YOU UNDERSTAND? End transmission."

The TV Tropes Wiki admin that Tom contacts about his vlogs. And the administrator of The Other Wiki, who contacts Mark about [citation needed]. Or so it seemed, until the season 2 final where they are shown to be an infinite number of iterations of Administrator Prime.


"CAN YOU BELIEVE IT? I can't believe Tom is still making his stupid little show with that... fat boy and that ugly chick!"

Tom's psycho ex-fiancee.

Dave Wallnau, aka "Dave the Sound Guy"

Zack's brother. Dave mans the boom mic behind the camera and never speaks. He thought Gaelyn's message for Zack was for him, and may have a crush on her.

Porn Girl/Alyssa

One of the interviewees for the female role, and had a brief relationship with Tom.

Stephen Tonti, aka "Ace"

The star of a rival series, [citation needed], sponsored by The Other Wiki. Has charisma in spades and quickly starts overshadowing Echo Chamber's popularity.
"Well, I am pretty cool. The internet doesn't lie."

  • Accidental Misnaming: The only thing he's not good at is getting Tom's name right.
  • The Ace
  • Always Someone Better
  • Dawson Casting: Decides to play his younger self in a video for his webshow.
    "Besides, I'm still just as adorable as I was ten years ago. Maybe more in some ways."
  • It's All About Me
  • Jerkass: He's arguably a bigger one than Tom. He doesn't do anything outright horrible, but he has a bit of a smugness to himself. That is, until he reveals that he didn't actually hire Dana because he needed her for the show, he merely had a crush on her. That, along with the way he rubbed it in her face, solidified his position of being a bigger Jerkass than Tom.
  • Meaningful Name
  • The Rival

Gaelyn, aka "Blueberry"

"Nobody really pays attention to me."

The camerawoman for [citation needed]. She has a crush on Zack, but he doesn't get it.

Mark Wallnau

Director of Transmedia for The Other Wiki and Zack and Dave's dad.


    One-shot characters 

Uncle Bill

Zack and Dave's uncle, whom they take after more than their own father. Appeared in Terrible Interviewees Montage.


Also appeared in Terrible Interviewees Montage. She may or may not have been there for the therapy session Tom hijacked.

??? / Knife Guy / Wrench Guy / Connor

Another terrible interviewee. He might be a serial killer. Or a civil engineer. Or a therapist. We're not sure.

Umphrey Bridgeport aka Stefan

An associate producer hired by Mr. Administrator to whip Tom and Dana into shape when their bickering affects the show. Snide and ill-tempered, he insults Tom and Dana's work, even though the episode they make while he's in charge is much worse than anything they did before he took over. Appears in Tyrant Takes the Helm. Played by Stefan Dezil. Oh, and he's a Walking Spoiler with Hidden Depths, so don't read the spoilers below unless you've seen The Stinger for his episode.


How well does it match the trope?
