Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee is a new web series where Jerry Seinfeld… well, you’re probably already ahead of me. Yes, Jerry drives around in car and gets coffee with a comedian. But these aren’t just your average cars – or comedians! Larry David, Ricky Gervais, Brian Regan, Colin Quinn, Alec Baldwin and Michael Richards to name a few.
Now, I have to admit, that when I first heard about Jerry’s new web series idea, I wasn’t that intrigued. I don’t know if it was the show’s name or the overly-simplified premise, but after catching up on the first two episodes, I realized that, really, the show’s simplicity is what makes it so fun to watch.
Think about it. This is Jerry Seinfeld making a show about (almost) nothing – that’s right in his wheel house! Even Larry David, co-creator of “Seinfeld” – “the show about nothing,” congratulates Jerry on the very first episode: “You have finally done a show about nothing.”
CICGC is similar to Jay’s Garage, but what makes it so much more fun is that while the featured car is an important and not forgotten part of the show, you don’t feel like you’re going to be quizzed afterwards or asked to make an offer on the car. You just get to vicariously enjoy the drive as they meander away from the hustle and bustle of NYC to some quaint café in a quiet town.
The show is as fun and relaxing as a cup of coffee with a friend – now I just need work on making friends with cool car owners with a sharp sense of humor.
Catch up on the first two episodes below and watch the preview for CICGC’s third episode featuring Brian Regan which will be available Thursday night (Aug 9) at 9 PM on ComediansInCarsGettingCoffee.com.
