Tommy Wiseau is one of the internet’s favourite living memes. His movie, The Room, is actually terrible but it’s so terrible that it became hilarious. All kinds of legendary lines came from it and it’s heralded as one of the best worst movies ever. Not exactly the best kind of recognition you want for your career, but sometimes things just end up like that, I suppose. Since The Room, Tommy Wiseau has embraced his status as a laughing stock and just kind of ran with it, doing funny outlandish things and even being wholly accepting of The Disaster Artist which is a full satirisation of his work and personality.
One of his latest stunts is “auditioning” as The Joker for Nerdist in a video that you can watch below that features his signature mannerisms and out there eccentricity. It’s a lovely three-minute ride into the deranged side of Tommy Wiseau that you owe to yourself to watch. He really goes into the role and actually kind of gets things right at times which may come at a big surprise. The man is multi-talented after all.
Go ahead and watch the audition for a little laugh for your day that you probably need:
