Arguably the worst movie made. The Room, written, directed, and starring Tommy Wiseau.

Wow. its like watching a bad version of Eric Roberts.

Ridicule is the only weapon which can be used against unintelligible propositions. Ideas must be distinct before reason can act upon them; and no man ever had a distinct idea of the trinity. It is the mere Abracadabra of the mountebanks calling themselves the priests of Jesus. -- Thomas Jefferson

For we know that our patchwork heritage is a strength, not a weakness. We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus -- and non-believers. -- Barack Obama

We see monsters where science shows us windmills. -- Phat

The Room, written, directed, and starring Tommy Wiseau. Yes, those blurbs at the end come from his own press release for the movie.

This is not a serious movie is it. Nobody can be that bad at acting and directing can they? Seriously, it is a comedy right?


“One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we've been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We're no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It is simply too painful to acknowledge -- even to ourselves -- that we've been so credulous.” - Carl Sagan, The Fine Art of Baloney Detection

"You can't convince a believer of anything; for their belief is not based on evidence, it's based on a deep seated need to believe." - Carl Sagan

"It is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring." - Carl Sagan, The Demon-Haunted World

DevilsAdvocate asks about The Room:

Oh, no. It was a serious movie. He meant it deeply from stem to stern. When he saw the audiences laughing hysterically at what he thought was he masterpiece on the level of Tennessee Williams, he backtracked and started calling it a "dark comedy."

See the trailer of his sitcom pilot, "The Neighbors":

He really thinks he's got something.

Thank you for your submission to Science. Your paper was reviewed by a jury of seventh graders so that they could look for balance and to allow them to make up their own minds. We are sorry to say that they found your paper "bogus," specifically describing the section on the laboratory work "boring." We regret that we will be unable to publish your work at this time.

Minds are like parachutes. Just because you've lost yours doesn't mean you can use mine.

Onifre?
Is this our Onifre?

Can't imagine there are a whole lot of Onifres out there (uncommon name), so I'm guessing yes.

Re: Onifre?
Since his real name is Oni Perez, I'd say yeah, that's him.


I hunt for the truth

I am the one Orgasmatron, the outstretched grasping hand
My image is of agony, my servants rape the land
Obsequious and arrogant, clandestine and vain
Two thousand years of misery, of torture in my name
Hypocrisy made paramount, paranoia the law
My name is called religion, sadistic, sacred whore.
-Lyrics by Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead

Re: Onifre?
Onifre,

If this is you, you are good! I have trouble hearing in echoey situations and couldn't make out about half the material, but what I heard was good. You probably don't need amateurs telling you that, but anyway, you were relaxed, engaged, good timing. I don't know why the bit about the kids arguing didn't get more of a laugh - maybe not enough parents in the audience?

The resolution on the video wasn't that good, but you looked a bit like that guy from the King of Queens sitcom. You were better then many of those comedians I see on the Comedy Channel's comedy specials.

If it wasn't you...never mind!

--Percy

Damn! I've been exposed!

Yes, yes, that's me, about 3 or 4 years ago. I actually won that contest with that particular set. That's the only video of me on youtube and it was taken without my knowing of it.

I don't like to watch myself, nor do I like posting videos on youtube. I'm weird about things like that.

Recently, I did a gig that (again without my knowing) was recorded and played on a podcast. If you'd like to hear my stuff its toward the end of the show.

Podshow. The mention me and talk about me at minute 56:40.

I should put some of the material into context. Small venue, and there was a karaoke party in the room next to this club.

[abe] I found the link to a short film I was in. It was selected for the International Film festival and New Directors. Plus it was feature on PBS in NYC. Stand Up. I hate watching my fat face on camera so I didn't watch it this time. Enjoy

Thanks, Percy. Hopefully next year, if all goes well, I'll be featured on the show Live at Gothem on Comedy Central. I'm auditioning this Tuesday for the Montreal Just for Laughs festival and I believe that is shown on TV also. I'll give you guys a heads up.

Actually, I've lost about 40 pounds since that video, so yes, I am now a different Oni.

Now, lets never mention this again.

Re: Onifre?
You'll need to let me know if you are ever at the Edinburgh Festival, I live about 30 mins away and I'm sure we could do a bit of damage to a bottle of whisky or 2.
