Lorne Michaels Visits ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’

The ever-elusive Lorne Michaels exercised his loyalty with Jerry Seinfeld when he made a special appearance on ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.’ It’s no secret that the ‘Saturday Night Live’ creator and producer has always been on the pulse of comedy, so the best part of the following clip is his question about Seinfeld’s format for the show. Something tells me Lorne does not approve, and perhaps rightfully so. The show is funny, but it’s not funny enough. Not for Lorne anyway.

Howard Stern & Jerry Seinfeld: Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee

Two Jews kvetching over coffee?! It’s as if I’m home for Yom Kippur! Howard Stern joined Jerry Seinfeld for Seinfeld’s Crackle show, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, and hilarity ensued. Seinfeld dodged Stern’s Leno questions, followed by a very funny accusation that Stern’s obsession with Seinfeld’s sexual prowess might be based on Stern’s homosexual tendencies. Stern also revealed some touching childhood moments about his insecurity and his bid for his father’s affection, which was beautifully juxtaposed against his arrogant declaration that he’s the greatest guy in the history of radio. If you listen to Stern’s radio show, you’d know that Seinfeld and Stern have yet to reunite post-filming, despite Stern’s desire to cultivate a friendship. In fact, when Stern inquired on-the-air about the exact date this episode would be released, Seinfeld’s assistant reached out with details. My guess? Seinfeld’s wife might not be a Stern fan. But what do I know? Watch below to see the two titans in action.

Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee — Jerry Seinfeld’s Show Starts Season 2

I’ve unsuccessfully attempted to obtain more clips for this show, but it appears their press team lives in a caged prison that I can’t penetrate. That being said, I’ve located a trailer that ALMOST exemplifies the show’s hilarity. It’s exclusive to Crackle, which is Sony’s online network (think Hulu with less content). Watch the trailer below, and click HERE to see full episodes of the show.
