10 Comedians & Cars for ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’

10 Comedians & Cars We Want To See On
‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’

We’ll admit it—we’re obsessed with Jerry Seinfeld’s new online TV show, ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’. Beyond the comic chemistry between Seinfeld and his various guests, comedic legends such as Larry David, Ricky Gervais, Alex Baldwin, and of course, Michael Richards, we love the cars.

From the 1970′s Mercedes Benz featured in the episode with Alec Baldwin to the 1976 Triumph TR6 Seinfeld drove with Colin Quinn and Mario Joyner, the classic cars on CICGC are on point. Seinfeld selects a car for each guest he’s that he feels “fits” them, with near perfect accuracy, as we saw with the rusted Volkswagen Bus on the Michael Richards episode.

We wanted to give Mr. Seinfeld a few suggestions on possible guests to take out for coffee and of course, classic cars he could take for a spin.


1. Jay Mohr and a 1962 Ford Thunderbird

After the hilarious case of mistaken identity in Michael Richard’s episode, specifically, when he and Jerry show up at Jay Mohr’s house looking for Sugar Ray Leonard, we think he owes Jay a cup of coffee. We’d love to see Jerry and Jay cruising along in this 1962 Ford T-Bird.

2. Julia Louis-Dreyfus & Jason Alexander and a 1922 Rolls Royce

We already saw the existing chemistry between Jerry and Michael Richards, and we’d love to see a repeat with Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Jason Alexander. We’d love to see the looks on their faces if he picked them up in this 1922 Rolls Royce.

3. Billy Crystal and a 1961 Ford Mustang

Billy Crystal is a classic himself- reigning over the comedy world for the past three decades. We think he’d be a perfect fit with this gorgeous vintage Mustang.

4. Brad Garrett and a 1961 Buick Skylark

Brad Garrett, known for his role as Robert on Everybody Loves Raymond, would be a comedic genius along Seinfeld in this 1961 Buick Skylark.

5. Colin Mochrie and a 1953 Allard

Colin Mochrie of Whose Line Is It Anyway? is one of a king, similar to this incredible classic 1953 Allard.

6. Jay Leno and a 1969 Corvette Stingray

We all know that Jay and Jerry are close friends, and of course, that Jay Leno is famous for his collection of classic cars. Maybe Jay should be the one to take Jerry for a spin in this Corvette Stingray.

7. Dave Coulier and a 1950′s Ford Woodie

Another 90′s comedy staple was Full House, co-starring Dave Coulier as the lovable Uncle Joey. The witty Coulier would be a riot in this classic Ford Woodie of the 1950′s.

8. Ellen Degeneres and a 1959 Porsche Convertible

Everyone’s favorite funny woman, Ellen Degeneres, would be a fantastic guest for Jerry. Besides her upbeat, friendly demeanor, (we can only suspect coffee is already involved), this sleek, sophisticated Porsche convertible would suit her well.

9. Tina Fey and a 1957 Bel Air

Speaking of funny women, we’d love to see Tina Fey alongside of Jerry Seinfeld on Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. We already saw them in 30 Rock, when Seinfeld guest starred as himself. We’d love to see “Liz Lemon” cruising along in this vintage classic blue Bel Air.

10. Jon Stewart- 1969 Chevy Impala

Long-time Daily Show host Jon Stewart would be another great addition to the hilarious guest stars of Comedians in Cars. This 60′s era Impala would be a great ride for Stewart.
