We’ve seen everyone from Howard Stern to Tina Fey to Don Rickles on Jerry Seinfeld’s web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. But who goes to get coffee with Seinfeld next season?
Seinfeld recently stopped by Late Show With David Letterman to announce a few of the guests for the upcoming Season Five of his web series.
We know that Jimmy Fallon will be on and that Seinfeld traveled all the way to Portland for the episode with Fred Armisen. In fact, it was reported just yesterday that Seinfeld and Armisen were spotted cruising around the hipster paradise. They made several stops, including the food cart pod on Southeast 28th Avenue, where the pair ate at Wolf and Bear’s.
The guest list for Season Five also includes: Colleen Ballinge, Bill Burr, Kevin Hart, Amy Schumer, and Ali Wentworth.
But what exactly is the show about?
It’s a pretty banal sounding concept to film two people driving around in a car and then sitting in a coffee shop. These two people are filmed just chatting, not about anything life-changing, or about anything important to the world. In all honesty, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee is exactly what the name implies. It’s literally comedians in cars getting coffee (sometime they get lunch and sometimes they drive around for a while.)
The comedy legend obviously does the show because he loves it. First off, he has a fondness for cars. He reportedly owns 47 different Porsches, which he houses in his $1.4 million garage in New York City.
The structure of the show is pretty simple. Seinfeld picks up a comedian, or a person who is funny like Alec Baldwin or Jon Stewart, usually at their place of residence, in a different car for each episode. During the first few minutes of every show, before he picks up his guest, Seinfeld will go over all the specific details about the cool car he is driving.
Seinfeld also loves to talk to other comics. And if his hit sitcom Seinfeld taught us anything, we know that there doesn’t really have to be a point. The show about nothing made the stand up hundreds of millions of dollars.
If you’re interested in checking out the series, all four completed seasons are up on the Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee website. You can check them out by clicking here.
The 5th season of the web series premieres on November 6.
