When he isn’t doing comedy, Jerry Seinfeld’s cars rule his world. As the owner of 47 Porsches, Seinfeld has one of the largest Porsche collections in the world. Now the star of the hit series “Seinfeld,” he mixes his passion for cars and comedians in his caffeine-fueled 2012 internet series, “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” produced by Sony Pictures Television, and viewable on Sony’s streaming TV platform Crackle.com or on comediansincarsgettingcoffee.com.
While the first season offered ten commercial-free, 12- to 17-minute episodes in which Seinfeld simply shows up in a vintage car and takes a fellow comedian out for coffee, the concept was popular enough that Sony decided to renew the show for a second season, but with commercials since someone has to pay for the production costs.
More about Seinfeld’s car collection than “nothing” (the premise of “Seinfeld”), Jerry’s observational comedic style is still evident. “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” includes enough information about each vintage car to pique an enthusiast’s interest, combined with a healthy dose of comedy and an interesting variety of diners and cafes that offer the viewer a vicarious sip of everything from a humble cuppa joe to a chic cappuccino.
