The second season of Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee kicked off last week with a killer episode featuring Sarah Silverman. This week, David Letterman joins Seinfeld on his quest for caffeine via a cool ride; that episode will go live at Noon today over at the show’s official website and at Crackle.
For an even bigger Seinfeld fix, check out this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly, which features Seinfeld’s explanation of the whole CICGC phenomenon in his own words. The conversation with the comedy legend diverted into all sorts of other areas (much like an episode of his new series), and he revealed to EW his five favorite funny films of all time.
His picks are eclectic, and they include at least one movie that is definitely not a comedy. Check out Seinfeld’s picks in the exclusive video below.
The guy is totally right—even though Glengarry Glen Ross isn’t a traditional comedy, there’s a lot of deeply funny moments in that movie, and there’s something inherently humorous about such a cynical, dark premise.
During the photo shoot, Seinfeld also discussed the philosophy behind Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. He explains that he wanted to do a talk show that didn’t fall into the terrible trappings of a normal talk show. Check out his comments below.
