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.)

Seinfeld, Stewart, Fey & more salute insult master Don Rickles: The night's best jokes

“On the Mount Rushmore of stand-up comedy, there are four faces, in my opinion: Richard Pryor, George Carlin, Bill Cosby — and Don Rickles,” Jerry Seinfeld declared at the top of Tuesday’s all-star tribute to legendary insult comic Rickles. The show — taped two days before Rickles’ 88th birthday — will air on Spike TV Wednesday, May 28.

Clearly, the biggest names in comedy agree with Seinfeld’s assessment. The evening, filmed in Harlem’s historic Apollo Theater, included tributes and mini-roasts of “the Merchant of Venom” from Bob Newhart, Jon Stewart, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and David Letterman, as well as some good-natured ribbing from Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro (who worked with Rickles on 1995’s Casino), and a truly bizarre, rambling reminiscence from Johnny Depp. (The general gist: When they first met, Rickles didn’t make fun of Depp — and the actor’s had a complex about it ever since.)

Give or take a few old-fashioned groaners — blame These Changing Times, which make the sort of racial humor Rickles often employed feel outdated — the event was packed with laughs from beginning (when Newhart, who’s been best pals with Rickles since the dawn of time, dropped in via video) to end (when Rickles finally got a chance to fire back). Even more impressive: The octogenarian, famous for improvising putdowns, apparently performed his final set  without the help of either notecards or the teleprompter. Here’s a preview of the night’s funniest gags, in roughly chronological order:

Jerry Seinfeld, Jason Alexander, and other 'Seinfeld' folk are reuniting for... something -- VIDEO

Curiouser and curiouser!

When the image above hit the Internet — and Jerry Seinfeld himself alluded to a “big, huge, gigantic” project he recently wrote with Larry David in his January 6 Reddit AMA — the rumor mill began to churn wildly. Clearly, he and Jason Alexander were reuniting at Manhattan’s Tom’s Diner for a Seinfeld-themed Super Bowl commercial. Or maybe an episode of Seinfeld’s web series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” though that wouldn’t necessarily explain the whole Larry David angle.

The truth? Seinfeld says there is some sort of Seinfeld reunion on the horizon… though he denies it’s either a big game ad or a webisode.

“It’s neither,” he told the hosts of a local New York radio show Thursday — before adding a mysterious addendum: “But, it is not not those things, either. It’s a secret project.”

Oh, okay, that clears everything up!

Following his barely there explanation, Seinfeld’s interviewers did get him to spill a few more tiny details about the project. So here’s what we do know: It’s some sort of “shortish-form,” “one-and-done” video. Alexander is, indeed, playing George Costanza. Filming took place in more than one location, though not at Seinfeld’s Upper West Side apartment. Other Seinfeld characters are involved, as is Larry David, though David doesn’t appear on film. And Seinfeld assures that we’ll get to see the result “very, very soon.”

Jerry Seinfeld's Reddit AMA: 12 things we learned

First things first: Don’t refer to the AMA that Jerry Seinfeld just did as a “chat about nothing.”

“The pitch for the show” — Seinfeld, that is — “was we want[ed] to show how a comedian gets his material,” Seinfeld explained to fans on Reddit this afternoon. The whole “show about nothing” thing, he continued, “was just a joke in an episode many years later.” To this day, Seinfeld and Larry David don’t get why it’s a phrase people keep using to describe their classic sitcom — “because to us it’s the opposite of that.”

Lesson learned! And this, of course, is just one of the many tasty nuggets of information Seinfeld dispensed during his wide-ranging “Ask Me Anything” event. (See the full text here.) What else did we learn from him? See below to find out — unless you’re Newman. Newman is not welcome here.

Jerry Seinfeld and Louis C.K. talk facial hair, weird dreams, and more while boating -- over coffee, of course

Comedians-In-Cars.jpg

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.
