What do you do when you have two comedians and a YouTube sensation on a talk show? You play Pictionary, obviously.
At least that was Jimmy Fallon’s answer when Martin Short appeared on The Tonight Show last night. For the game, Fallon brought out a little competition—key word being “little”—in Miranda Sings and Jerry Seinfeld. The result was a riveting game in which everyone sucked, but at least Sings was wearing pink Crocs.
In the latest outing of Jerry Seinfeld’s endlessly entertaining web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, he takes a ride with Amy Schumer in a (literally) smoking Ferrari. READ FULL STORY
For Cosmo Kramer, Jerry Seinfeld’s apartment was like a personal—and free—grocery store.
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.
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.)
“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old-fashioned groaners — blame These Changing Times, which make the sort of racial humor Rickles often employed feel outdated — the event was packed with laughs from beginning (when Newhart, who’s been best pals with Rickles since the dawn of time, dropped in via video) to end (when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:
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.”
