Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee: Lorne Michaels guests

Posted on

Crackle

During the eight-season run of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, Jerry Seinfeld has interviewed some of Saturday Night Live’s greats, but now he’s riding with the man behind it all, Lorne Michaels.

The creator of SNL immediately shows off his dry sense of humor as he says he’s excited to do the show. When Seinfeld asks if he really is, Michaels stoically replies, “No.” What ensues is an epic coffee run that brings together comedy titans.

“I remember when I was young, I was at Mr. Chow’s one time in Beverly Hills, and I saw Steve Martin and Neil Simon having dinner, and I went out of my mind thinking, ‘What in the world are those two guys talking about?’ All I wanted to do was to eavesdrop, and that’s what this show is,” Seinfeld told EW last month. “If you saw Lorne Michaels and me sitting in a restaurant, talking, you’d want to just pull up a chair, right? That’s what the show is.”

Michaels’ episode of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee will be available to stream on Crackle beginning Thursday.
