“This is a slinky, sexy 1969 Jaguar XKE Series 2 E-Type convertible in opalescent blue,” Jerry Seinfeld says. He’s on his way to pick up Sarah Silverman in Los Angeles, for a season two episode of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. “Enzo Ferrari once described this as, ‘The most beautiful car ever designed,’” he continues.
Moments later, Seinfeld pulls up to greet Silverman. “This is the car I picked,” he says, standing proudly next to the shiny antique machinery he’s acquired for the day. He’s wearing a blazer, blue jeans, and sneakers — iconic comedian attire — and he almost appears anxious as he waits for Silverman’s approval. As Silverman [...]
Jerry Seinfeld's Crackle web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee returns with a new round of episodes on November 6th with guests like Jimmy Fallon, Amy Schumer, Kevin Hart, and Fred Armisen, and today the streaming network released a tense teaser video featuring Seinfeld's old TV neighbor Michael Richards as the cigar-sucking Crackle president Dick Corcoran.

They reminisce together about the days when they were nobodies and given glorious breaks, and seem almost unaware that there are nobodies today who could benefit from breaks of that very kind."
- The New York Times in a new piece comparing the "everyman scrutiny" of Seinfeld to the comedian's web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, which has drawn criticism for its lack of guest diversity.
During his Buzzfeed Brews interview with CBS This Morning yesterday, Jerry Seinfeld was asked by Peter Lauria about the predominantly white male list of guests featured on his hit web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. Seinfeld's response, which you can watch in the above clip, seemed as tired of the question as it was defensive: People think it's the census or something … who cares?

I have no interest in gender or race or anything like that, but everyone else is kind of with their little calculating [...]
