As Jerry Seinfeld prepares for the fifth season of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, he’s enlisted the help of an old neighbor to boost the show and its host Crackle’s presence.

L.A.-area dealers, beware: Tony Hale will not pay for his drugs.
That’s one of the many takeaways from “Comedians in Cars Getting Cocaine,” The Soup‘s Joel McHale-hosted spoof of Jerry Seinfeld’s friendlier, Coffee-ier web series. The video shows the cult-sitcom star picking up the, um, other cult-sitcom star for a nice top-down ride around Southern California. They discuss Arrested Development, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and how Tony Hale likes to numb away his shameful past with the power of cocaine.
Funny stuff! And hey, it’s not a bad day for an on-point homage to Jerry’s work (complete with light jazz!), given that today marks the 25th anniversary of the premiere of Seinfeld.
Watch the video below to see if McHale and Hale inhale:
You can’t take comedian George Wallace anywhere.
In the new trailer for the next season of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, Seinfeld and Wallace share a table at a neon-lit establishment where Seinfeld wonders aloud whether the fellow patrons are tourists or locals — inspiring Wallace to shout “hey, where’s everybody from?” (Mostly Vegas, it turns out.)
Jerry Seinfeld and Louis C.K. talk facial hair, weird dreams, and more while boating -- over coffee, of course
Jerry Seinfeld’s web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee is pretty self explanatory. For the first two seasons, Seinfeld drove around and drank coffee with his comedian friends like Larry David and Chris Rock. Seinfeld changed things up a bit for the season 3 premiere, released Thursday, with Louis C.K. as they took a ride in C.K.’s yacht, promptly introducing us to a new show: Buffoons in Boats Brewing Beverages.
Ok – I made that last part up. But in the episode, Seinfeld and C.K. discuss the significance of facial hair in comedy, a fictional weird dreams hotline, and somehow, Seinfeld is able to compare C.K.’s stoned movie watching habits to suicide bombers. Louis also goes into detail about the time he got his boat stuck in the mud while out with his daughters — how they were rescued.

“This show is not really a show,” Howard Stern tells Jerry Seinfeld in the following clip, speaking in a slightly accusatory tone. “It’s just for you to drive around in cool cars…”
“…with people I think are cool,” Seinfeld answers matter-of-factly.
And that, in essence, is what the self-explanatory webseries Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee is all about. Each episode features a neat old automobile, a sunny locale, and a table where Seinfeld shares a caffeinated beverage with a different comedic luminary. Tina Fey, Patton Oswalt, Howard Stern, Jay Leno, and Louis CK will all appear on the show this year — as will a creepy drone camera whose flight is scored by “Ride of the Valkyries.” Judging from the trailer, Seinfeld and Stern’s talk looks like it’ll be especially fun; how often do you get to see one middle-aged comedian tell another that he looks like “a hip Wicked Witch of the West”?
During EW’s long conversation with Jerry Seinfeld about the art of comedy and how that obsession became the web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, Seinfeld talked a lot about the fact that most great comedy comes from irritation, and that all the greats have the ability to spin that sense of annoyance into something hilarious.
So what is currently bothering Seinfeld? The post office. Specifically, the silliness of their conveyances and the cost of stamps. “Stop going up a penny on the stamps,” he said. “Just make it a dollar, and if there’s any profit, get yourself some pants and a real car.”
In addition to the postal service, Seinfeld is also currently obsessed with the movie Moneyball. “Any time I get some free time, I just play it and sit and watch it over and over,” Seinfeld said.
Check out his whole in-development post office bit as well as his thoughts on Moneyball below.

'Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee' season 2 react: Jerry Seinfeld rides again with Sarah Silverman, David Letterman
The most risky thing about Jerry Seinfeld’s web series Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee is the length. Each installment is just the right size to feel like a tedious waste of time if the jokes or chatter don’t land. The first two episodes of the second season avoid being weak cups of Jerry, although one offers a better jolt than the other.
The second season of Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee kicked off last week with a killer episode featuring Sarah Silverman. This week, David Letterman joins Seinfeld on his quest for caffeine via a cool ride; that episode will go live at Noon today over at the show’s official website and at Crackle.
For an even bigger Seinfeld fix, check out this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly, which features Seinfeld’s explanation of the whole CICGC phenomenon in his own words. The conversation with the comedy legend diverted into all sorts of other areas (much like an episode of his new series), and he revealed to EW his five favorite funny films of all time.
His picks are eclectic, and they include at least one movie that is definitely not a comedy. Check out Seinfeld’s picks in the exclusive video below. READ FULL STORY
Jerry Seinfeld's 'Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee' returns with Sarah Silverman, David Letterman, and lots of caffeine
Back in the summer of 2012, one of comedy’s biggest names found a new home for himself: the Internet. And now he’s back for more.
On Thursday afternoon, Jerry Seinfeld — the man synonymous with sponge-worthiness, close talkers, and pretty much any television comedy catchphrase in the late ’90s — will unveil the first episode of the new season of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. The show’s title is very literal: Each episode pairs Seinfeld with another comedian, puts them in a cool old car, and features a conversation over caffeinated beverages.
The concept is simple, but the results are often thrilling. (And also award-winning.) The first season saw episodes featuring Larry David, Ricky Gervais, Mel Brooks, Colin Quinn, and Michael Richards, and each one featured revelatory chats about the nature of comedy, a subject Seinfeld finds endlessly fascinating. “Comedians never fail to get to this subject of, ‘How do you do this?’ or ‘What’s it like for you?’ or ‘What are you dealing with?'” Seinfeld told EW in a recent conversation. “So in almost every one of these shows, in fact I have to eventually say every single one at some point, these two people get to that.”
This season’s premiere, which will be available on Crackle and on the show’s official website at noon Thursday, features Sarah Silverman. Other guests this time around include David Letterman, Chris Rock, and Seth Meyers. Check out the preview of the new season below.

It’s impossible to watch Jerry Seinfeld and Michael Richards together without recalling their Seinfeld characters. But in the season finale of Seinfeld’s web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, the pair were more somber during their reunion than we remember their sitcom counterparts.
The episode started off on a light note, with Seinfeld driving to pick up his former on-screen neighbor in a rusted “dove blue” VW. Richards questioned Seinfeld’s new-found coffee obsession: “What is that coffee, liquor, money? Is that your life now?” he asked.
Once they reach their destination, Richards got philosophical. He told an anecdote about playing chess with a homeless savante and discussed the “great universality” of Kramer’s soul before addressing his controversial 2006 rant when he used racial epithets. “I should have been working selflessly that evening,” he said. “I blew it in the comedy club. … I lashed out in anger.” Richards said he hasn’t been able to perform since that incident which “still kicks him around a bit” inside.
