TRS-80, which performs at the closing night of the Frenetic Fringe Festival on Sunday, is Jay Rajeck and Eric Fensler.

This helped set Fensler off on a film career, but he also took the internet by storm, creating one of the first underground viral video series, pre-YouTube, redubbing GI Joe PSAs. Out of respect for a cease-and-desist order from Hasbro, we aren't linking to the videos, but you can still find them around. Here, let me Google that for you.
