Ray Romano's eight-day drive through the south on a stand-up comedy tour becomes more than he bargains for when longtime friend and opening act, Tom Caltabiano, brings a film student along to document their thousand-mile journey. Together, all three struggle with Ray's obsessions, phobias, and insecurities in this unscripted exploration of newfound fame. Written by
Tom Caltabiano and Ray Romano are best friends from their stand-up. They would create the hit TV show 'Everybody loves Raymond'. At the end of the 5th season, they decide to go on a stand-up tour. After flying to Florida, Ray, who is afraid of flying, would drive on an 8 days 6 performances road trip with Tom and intern Roger Lay Jr.
Ray Romano's observational stand-up is solid. The snippets of it is pretty good. The problem is the road trip. It's bland. The problem is that he's not performing. It's simply the guys being bros without any drama. Their friendship comes through as almost a married couple. They're comfortable with each other and it shows. Sadly, it's not exciting and there is not much comedy in that. His little observations and neuroses are interesting but not actual laughs. Much of it is home video quality with the sound to match. One does get a sense of their friendship and that's something great for fans.
