Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee

Recommended Posts

We watched the Ellen DeGeneres episode last night, and immediately followed it with her new Netflix standup special.

Imagine my surprise when a lot of the supposedly spontaneous conversation from her turned out to be verbatim bits from her act.

That isn't exactly a crime, but I always did use to think that we were getting an unpackaged look at the comedians on the show, and I've lost my innocence a bit on that.

I also now wouldn't be surprised to learn that the idea for Jerry to have Ellen out for coffee came from Netflix. A bit of the old cross-promotion, nudge nudge, wink wink.

I'm still on season 9, the last episodes of that season... I just saw the Christopher Waltz, and got a little disappointed... no chemistry between them, it looks like Jerry didn't know what to talk about with him, besides the Viena talk.

But I love this show so much, that even the bad episodes are fun to watch.

I can still see the terror on Ricky Gervais's face while he was riding in a tiny sports car on one of the old expressways in NYC. Jerry was taking him to a coffee shop on City Island.

I just rewatched the Mel Brooks and Carl Reiner segment, it is outstanding.
