Jerry Seinfeld presents Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee, a kind of chat show where comedians get in a car and go to enjoy some coffee. The premise is simple and the execution perfect. Each car is selected especially for each guest.
Top 5 cars
Acura were a sponsor, back in the crackle days but all remnants have been removed but the original cars remain. In no particular order, here are my top 5 cars.
- 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing (Lorn Michaels)
- 1972 BMW 2002 (Kathleen Madigan & Chuck Martin)
- 1957 BMW 507 Series II (Christoph Waltz)
- 1959 Fiat 600 Jolly (Louis CK)
- 1963 Corvette Sting Ray (Barrack Obama)
A decidedly European list but with the guest and cars matching so well, the chemistry is great no matter what's being driven.
Top 10 Guests
There have been 60 episodes so far, I have a top 10 which you can see bellow in no particular order, but notably missing are other guests like Larry David, Ricky Gervais and Alec Baldwin who only just fail to make the cut:
- John Oliver
- Jimmy Fallon
- Kristen Wig
- Barrack Obama
- Trevor Noah
- Aziz Ansari
- Tina Fey
- Chris Rock
- David Letterman
- Sarah Silverman
Since Netflix took over proceedings, each show is now referred as a shot in a collection. What was previously an X season show is now split into 4 sets totalling X episodes. Here are links to my favourite 10 shots:
Looking ahead to the new season of Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee
The trailer (below) is out for the 2018 edition, which starts streaming on the 6th July, looks like it will have some great guests:
- Hassan Minaj
- Kate Mckinnon
- Alec Baldwin (return guest)
- Dave Chappell
- Zach Galafanakis
- Ellen DeGeneres
- and Jerry Lewis
I remember seeing a number of Jerry Lewis films growing up and as with at least one previous guest, he's no longer with us so seeing what he had to say at the tail end of his long and successful life will be really interesting.
