Las Vegas. Summer 2019. Our host Mike Finoia is stationed in the steamy Las Vegas heat doing a stand up residency at the Comedy Cellar. Deep in a mental block on how to start this project, a convention of obsessed fans is dropped at his feet (actually the RIO check in desk) and a light goes on in the attic. Fanatics are everywhere, and regardless of the subject, deep down we are all the same.  Still Chasing is produced by Osiris Media. Executive Producers are Mike Finoia and Michael Shields.
