A look at the work of two stand-up comics, Jerry Seinfeld and a lesser-known newcomer, detailing the effort and frustration behind putting together a successful act and career while living a life on the road.
Although old cast members appear in various episodes (aside from Jerry Seinfeld of course), The Over-Cheer is the only episode to have some of them play their old characters. Jason Alexander reprised his role as George Costanza and Wayne Knight reprised his role as Newman. See more »
Hi, I'm Jerry Seinfeld. And this is Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee.

First off, I love how the car is intuitively matched to the subject. It's hilarious because an inanimate object is worth a thousand words.
Jerry has phenomenal access to these guys and can relate as a professional peer. How often do you get to listen in on that type of conversation? These guys are giants and might have been around the block a few times. I think that's incredible. I especially enjoyed Bob Einstein's episode and Larry David's incognito moves in the diner.
Something that came to mind for me was how nice it is to see someone stay true to who they are and what they think is funny. It's also good to see comedians sussing out what exactly is funny about something, finding the funny or following the game as kids say nowadays.
I wouldn't mind seeing expanded versions, or repeat visits to some of these people.
Overall it's some of the best webseries content I've ever seen. I enjoy real talk (Dinner For Five with Jon Favreau would be another show) and can't wait to see more episodes of this online.
