Have you checked out Jerry Seinfeld’s new web series? I am totally obsessed. The premise is right there in the title. Jerry picks up a fellow comedian and they go get coffee, bullshitting and making each other laugh for roughly eleven minutes. Each episode features a different classic car, and Jerry gives a few fun facts about the car in the opening. I assumed they were all gems from his famous car collection, but only a couple actually were his. The rest were rentals.
I’ve also loved the Seinfeld outtakes where Jerry breaks into laughter while shooting. This series feels like that all that time. Plus, there are lots of beautiful shots of coffee and espresso. It makes me crave a really good cup.
Alec Baldwin is a favorite of mine. He and Jerry have lunch and banter with the waitress. All the episodes are good, but the one I’ve embedded here features Larry David. The rapport he and Jerry still have together is so great. I believe they are comic soul mates, and this is as close to a new Seinfeld episode as you are going to get.
Enjoy. You can catch the rest of the episodes here. Check out Ricky Gervais, Mel Brooks, Carl Reiner, Colin Quinn and more.
