Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee: Barack Obama to appear on Jerry Seinfeld show

Posted on

Crackle

Looks like Jerry Seinfeld has landed the ultimate coffee date.

Barack Obama will match wits with the veteran stand-up in the season 7 premiere of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, it was announced on Monday.

The episode featuring the 44th president of the United States was filmed earlier in December at the White House. Obama and Seinfeld will be seen driving a 1963 Corvette Stingray Split Window Coupe while discussing life at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. over a cup of joe.

“Growing up in the ’60s my kid dream was always to be an astronaut — doing a comedy show with President Obama in and around the White House felt like going into space,” said Seinfeld in a statement. “‘How did I get here?’ ‘Is this really happening?’ The President’s humor and generosity are the only reasons this was even possible. He was so easy and fun to be with. Being President and just a cool guy to hang out with at the same time made the experience my own personal moonwalk. It was an unforgettable day.”

The episode will stream on Crackle on Dec. 30 at 11:30 p.m. ET.

A famous impersonator of our nation’s 43rd president, Will Ferrell, is also one of the marquee names slated for the six-episode seventh season. Other guests include Steve Martin, Garry Shandling, Kathleen Madigan, and Sebastian Maniscalco. A new episode debuts every Wednesday at 11:30 p.m. ET. 

Obama has popped up in some unexpected pop-culture places this year, showing off his survival skills in the Alaskan wilderness on the Dec. 17 episode of NBC’s Running Wild With Bear Grylls and appearing on Marc Maron’s WTF podcast back in June.
