Escape from the Bronx

Please choose a format above.

When RiffTrax last paid a visit to the Bronx, it was a festering heap of violence, filth, and burning barrels. And now they’re saying we have to leave???

The government is clearing out the Bronx, promising people a better future in enchanting New Mexico. But there’s something about the way those goons are roasting innocent citizens with flamethrowers that seems a little untrustworthy… 

Fortunately some brave souls have gathered in the sewer to amass explosives while dressing as Xanadu background dancers. They are led by Trash, and not in the sense that the Twisted Brown Tucker Band is led by Kid Rock. This is an actual guy named Trash, and he was radicalized when gentrification turned his favorite bodega into a Banana Republic. Oh, and also when goons roasted his parents with flamethrowers.

Can Trash fight off a Bronx full of rival gangs, death squads, worst of all, Red Sox fans in town for a four game series? Find out when Mike, Kevin, and Bill RIFF THE BRONX!

Written by: Mike Nelson, Conor Lastowka, and Sean Thomason

Contributing writers: Jason Miller and Zach Shatzer

Rated TV-MA for violence, blood, gore, profanity, and Trash
