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
I watched 95 Miles to Go because I've greatly enjoyed other behind-the-scenes on-the-road stand-up comedian films and shows, especially Comedians of Comedy.
When you think of a comedian tour film, you think of comedians joking with each other, riffing, playing practical jokes, and taking turns insulting each other. In short, being funny. But there's very little of that in this film. Far too much time is spent demonstrating that being on the road is boring for the most part. The concert footage is funny, but it's almost entirely old material which Romano and Caltabiano have since performed on TV.
One redeeming element is the interesting contrast between the Ray Romano who takes the time to shake hands and sign autographs even when he's running late, versus the insecure, whiny, complaining Ray Romano.
95 Miles to Go will be of interest only to viewers who are fascinated by the life of the stand-up comic on the road. If you're expecting hilarity, you'll be disappointed.
