Jerry Seinfeld and Michael Richards reunite
Jerry Seinfeld and his Seinfeld co-star Michael Richards (who played Kramer on the show) are out there and lovin' every minute of getting coffee for the season one finale of Seinfeld's aptly titled online show Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. In the episode, Richards, who has steered clear of the public eye since making off-putting remarks during a Laugh Factory performance in 2006, and Seinfeld discuss Sugar Ray Leonard, Charles Manson, Jay Mohr, and Seinfeld's dog as they drive to a lunch date in an old VW truck. I only wish they were headed to Monk's Cafe. Richards' wit is as sharp as ever, as evidenced by the episode's preview ("Don't invite little girls over to the table, Jerry.").
Past guests on Seinfeld's second show "about nothing" have included Larry David, Ricky Gervais, Carl Reiner, Alec Baldwin, and Mel Brooks. Hopefully we'll see appearances by Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Jason Alexander next season. But the ultimate comedian to grab coffee with would definitely have to be Woody Allen. We'd love to hear his musings on life, death, and French roast.
The finale will air tonight at 9 p.m. EST on the show's site.
