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.
Tag: Michael Richards (1-3 of 3)
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.

Jerry Seinfeld and his Seinfeld co-star Michael Richards (who played Kramer on the show) are out there and lovin’ every minute of getting coffee for the season one finale of Seinfeld’s aptly titled online show Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. In the episode, Richards, who has steered clear of the public eye since making off-putting remarks during a Laugh Factory performance in 2006, and Seinfeld discuss Sugar Ray Leonard, Charles Manson, Jay Mohr, and Seinfeld’s dog as they drive to a lunch date in an old VW truck. I only wish they were headed to Monk’s Cafe. Richards’ wit is as sharp as ever, as evidenced by the episode’s preview (“Don’t invite little girls over to the table, Jerry.”).
Past guests on Seinfeld’s second show “about nothing” have included Larry David, Ricky Gervais, Carl Reiner, Alec Baldwin, and Mel Brooks. Hopefully we’ll see appearances by Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Jason Alexander next season. But the ultimate comedian to grab coffee with would definitely have to be Woody Allen. We’d love to hear his musings on life, death, and French roast.
The finale will air tonight at 9 p.m. EST on the show’s site.
