Before Everybody Loves Raymond debuted, Ray was one of the top touring comedians in the country. At the height of his sitcom’s popularity, Ray revisited his stand-up roots, hitting the road with long-time friend and opening act, Tom, who decided to film the tour. Thus was born 95 MILES TO GO, an ultimate fly-on-the-wall documentary that came about when Ray 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, a 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!
