'Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee' season 11 brings Seinfeld back to what he does best - making a show about nothing
To watch Jerry Seinfeld on the screen is pure delight. NBC's hit comedy show 'Seinfeld' – "the show about nothing" – remains till date one of our most favourite shows.
In the trailer for the eleventh season of 'Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee', Seinfeld talks about coffee, laughs and cars. But before he gets to it, he pokes fun at the sheer number of series that are "influenced" by his format.
He names 'Carpool Karaoke' ('The Late Late Show's segment), 'Alec Baldwin's Love Ride', 'Comedians Watching Football With Friends', 'Funny Uber Rides' and 'Clergy in Cars Getting Coffee' – all of which are real shows, he adds, "inspired" by other vehicle-based formats.
"We are proud that others have taken notice of our style and have been inspired by it. The only comment we would like to make is, 'If you're gonna knock us off, get it right,'" Seinfeld says.
Seinfeld's drifting talk show is a hilarious encapsulation of coffee, laughs, vintage cars and everything in between. First premiered in July 2012, the quirky, caffeine-filled adventures with some of the sharpest minds in comedy – he has previously hosted Larry David, Brian Regan, Alec Baldwin, and in a tell-all conversation with Michael Richards that delved into the controversial racist rant. There was also an episode with Jason Alexander (who played the role of George Costanza on 'Seinfeld) in the third season, but it was excluded from the Netflix collections in 2018.
Guests for the eleventh season include Eddie Murphy, Seth Rogen, Ricky Gervais, Matthew Broderick, Jamie Foxx, Sebastian Maniscalco, Martin Short, Mario Joyner, Melissa Villaseñor, Bridget Everett, and Barry Marder.
The rest of the trailer includes clips from the conversations with the comedians who join Seinfeld throughout the upcoming season. Ricky Gervais is shown begrudgingly eating an avocado toast as Seinfeld asks if that's what he wants to eat. "It's what I've got," Gervais responds. Meanwhile, Matthew Broderick sets expectations low as he offers, "I'm not saying anything entertaining."
The series is created by Seinfeld himself. Originally, the first nine seasons of the show were distributed by the digital network Crackle. Following this, the series moved to Netflix for season ten.
