With effective marketing Jamal feels confident that "Super-Spy" has a great chance to be a strong film on DVD. A sound track of the DVD will also be made available.

The comedy shows included comedians and actors from the movie as well as comedians slated for the "Super-Spy" sequel, "If Only I Could Live." Spencer, Larry B. Scott, Joe Clair, Melanie Camacho, and T.P. Hearn have appeared in the opening tour dates.
