They have a fanbase in the UK? I was not aware of that. I thought being a MSTie was strictly a US thing.
It might be an even smaller fan base in the UK, but I've bumped into more than a couple fans from over there. In addition to Rifftrax, Frank and Trace have also performed over there via a fundraiser to get them there. Their trip was actually recorded and featured on one of the MST DVDs.
