Episode two of Jerry Seinfeld's new Crackle show, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, debuted on YouTube yesterday. In this one, the great New York comedian takes British funnyman Ricky Gervais to the top of the Bronx for a cup of coffee at some bougie spot by Eastchester Bay.
The two cruise up from Manhattan in a 1967 Austin Healy 3000, Ice Blue—a straight six-liter, 150 horsepower engine, the type of car that makes you say "I really love British sports cars, and dammit, I will go down with that ship if I have to," Seinfeld says
Gervais orders a black coffee. Seinfeld asks for some half and half. After the order, Gervais gives Seinfeld a hard time about asking for two additional egg whites to go along with his original order of two eggs.
Here are all the things the two comedians talks about:
- Awards shows
- The fact that they don't have much to talk about
- Other names for the show
- Pretty simple mental math
- The Gettysburg Address
Here are the various thoughts we had about the show when we weren't thinking about how we would have asked for an iced coffee:
- What's the deal with coffee?
- 127 Starbucks in Manhattan and Seinfeld goes all the way up to the Bronx.
- Ricky Gervais is really only funny to Americans because he's a British comedian who likes to laugh.
- This entire show might very well be a tax write-off.
