Last week, Crackle released its first teaser of a new web series called "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee" starring Jerry Seinfeld and the appearance of a number of talented comedians.
Featuring some big names including Alec Baldwin, Ricky Gervais, Larry David, Colin Quinn, and Michael Richards, the premise of the show is pretty straightforward. Jerry picks up his eclectic guests in an equally eclectic assortment of classic cars and drive off for a pleasant cup of morning coffee.
There's something to say about the relationship between cars and comedy: Top Gear BBC wouldn't have been nearly as successful if it weren't for the impeccable delivery and chemistry between the three presenters; Mr. Bean's escapades in his little yellow Mini Cooper were his best episodes; wouldn't some movies in the Fast And The Furious franchise have worked a lot better as a comedy?
On Thursday, Crackle released a second video providing a longer 2-minute preview of what to look forward to. While it's clear that the cars will be playing more of a supporting role, we still aren't entirely sure if there's a central element to the show at all. Larry David said it best: "You have finally done the show about nothing."
That said, we can't wait to watch it! Check out the 2-minute preview down below:
