New York-born comedian Jerry Seinfeld is back on the scene, looking for laughs without really trying. In the '90s it was "Seinfeld," now it's a fun distraction fit for our modern age of technological fluency: a 10-minute, weekly Web show.
"Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee" stays true to the Seinfeld brand: finding the humor in simple conversation and everyday routine. The show's structure is exactly as the title suggests: Jerry and one other comedian, a weekly "guest," go to drink coffee and talk. But it's funny, and surprisingly much more entertaining than it sounds.
The shows are released every Thursday, and so far Jerry has sat down with Larry David and Ricky Gervais. Brian Regan is next set to make an appearance.
The shows are free, easy to watch and of a perfect length. It may be the perfect distraction we all need sometimes.
