Jerry Seinfeld is back with a new season of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. This time, we’re riding with Seth Rogen, Eddie Murphy, Martin Short, Jaime Foxx, Melissa Villaseñor, Bridget Everett and more.
A year after the show’s migration to Netflix, the streaming service announced last week that Season 11 premieres on 19 July.
Not that it still needs any introduction but ICYMI because you were in fact born yesterday, the show does what it says on the tin. It features Jerry Seinfeld picking up a famous comedian in his car, and the duo chatting casually about life and comedy as they drive down to get a cup of (d’uh!) coffee and maybe some breakfast.
The trailer released only a few days ago, but Seinfeld’s already in trouble. He’s had to apologise to English actor and comedian Robert Llewellyn, who hosted a similarly formatted web series Carpool (2009-2014), for inadvertently implying (in the trailer) that CICGC was the first host-in-car format series through jabs at the dozens of copycat shows that have sprung up since CICGC started in 2012.
Either way, this year’s guests seem pretty interesting with Ricky Gervais bringing in a twist of the classic Office stare-down at the camera, as shown in the trailer, and him visiting a barbershop with another fellow comedian.
