Go Behind the Scenes in This
Fly-on-the-Wall Indie Documentary
"An engaging crazy-quilt of comedy... uproarious" - Variety
LOS ANGELES, CA - Video Services Corp. is proud to announce the release of 95 MILES TO GO on DVD May 22, 2012. 95 Miles to Go follows two Emmy(TM) Award winners -- Ray Romano ("Everybody Loves Raymond," "Men of a Certain Age," Ice Age), and Tom Caltabiano (writer, "Everybody Loves Raymond") -- as they drive through the South on a stand-up comedy tour.
Before "Everybody Loves Raymond" debuted, Ray Romano was one of the top touring comedians in the country. At the height of his sitcom's popularity, Romano revisited his stand-up roots, hitting the road with long-time friend and opening act, Tom Caltabiano, who decided to film the tour. Thus was born 95 MILES TO GO, an ultimate fly-on-the-wall documentary that came about when Romano rejected the idea of a large camera crew, and instead, Tom plucked a wide-eyed USC student, Roger Lay, Jr., out of Filmmaking 101 and dropped him into the back seat of the duo's rental car, creating what Film Journal International called "a surprisingly unvarnished look at the machinery of show business."
Everything is here: from the comic's adrenaline-filled walk to the stage to the hilarious intimacy of two comedians locked in a car together for hundreds of miles. Together, they each struggle with Ray's obsessions, phobias and insecurities in this unscripted exploration of newfound fame.
The 95 Miles to Go DVD is loaded with over two and a half hours of never-before-seen bonus features, including, for the first time ever, a full half-hour of Ray's stand-up comedy, South by Southwest film festival Q&A (with a surprise celebrity guest), Ray and Tom's video commentary, two audio commentaries with the director, cinematographer, editor, and composer, hilarious deleted and extended scenes, photos and much more!
