On March 8, 2016 a Kickstarter project was announced for a live show to commemorate [=RiffTrax=]' tenth anniversary. The show, to be held in Minneapolis in June, will be highlighted by an ''[=MST3K=]'' reunion, with Nelson, Murphy, and Corbett joined by fellow alumni Joel Hodgson, Trace Beaulieu, Frank Conniff, Mary Jo Pehl, and Bridget Jones Nelson (and new ''[=MST3K=]' reboot host Creator/JonahRay) for a night of shorts-riffing. The Kickstarter drive, which will fund a live riff of ''[=MST3K=]'' favorite ''Film/TimeChasers'' as well as the reunion show, took just four days to meet its base goal.

** In ''{{Film/Twilight}} Breaking Dawn Part 1'', Bill interprets one of Edward's many bizarre facial contortions as him trying and failing to fart. This starts up a running gag that culminates with Kevin enumerating Edward's flaws, ending with "you can't fart." Bill says "In his defense, I kinda forced that one on him."

Since starting [=RiffTrax=], Mike Nelson has been joined by several ex-''[=MST3K=]'' loyalists (most notably Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett, aka the second voices of Tom Servo and Crow on ''[=MST3K=]'') in his business. Guest stars such as Creator/NeilPatrickHarris, WebVideo/ChadVader, Music/WeirdAlYankovic, and [[Website/SomethingAwful Rich "Lowtax" Kyanka]] have also appeared. Disembaudio will also chime in now and then to crack a joke. Users are also allowed to send in their riffs; [=RiffTrax=] then sells them and shares the money with the users. This program is called [=iRiffs=]. Some notable [=iRiffs=] include [[NostalgiaCritic Doug Walker]] and his brother Rob riffing ''Film/BatmanForever''.

On April 1, 2014 the Rifftrax crew held a special on Magazine/NationalGeographic channel, where they riffed on classic Nat Geo programming. Titled "Total Riff Off", this was the trio's first appearance on cable TV in over 15 years since the cancellation of ''[=MST3K=]''. The Nat Geo special was later released as a video-on-demand title on the website. Another ran in December 2014.
