Jerry Seinfeld seems to be everywhere lately. He is back the standing circuit for the first time in a long time. More recently, however, he has appeared on talk shows, magazines and podcasts promoting his new The Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee Book. (The comedy legend even spoke to Car and driver recently – you can read this interview here.)
The Collector’s Coffee Table Book sells for $35, but right now on Amazon you can pick up a copy for just north of twenty bucks. It’s a great holiday gift idea for anyone who loves cars. Or actors. Or coffee. And or Seinfeld.
Comedians in cars having a coffee premiered in 2012 and ran for 84 episodes over 11 seasons, with the final show airing on netflix in 2019. While Jerry claims he has no plans to produce any more episodes of the series, he has now adapted portions of almost every episode of Comedians in cars having a coffee in a 352-page coffee table book.
Well titled The Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee Book (Simon & Schuster), the volume features excerpts and footage from Seinfeld’s many interviews with various comedians. He reminisced about Larry David, poked fun at Steve Martin and Eddie Murphy, reunited with the cast of Seinfeld, and even visited President Barack Obama in the Oval Office.
Scheduled for the 10th anniversary of the show’s debut, the book is packed with photos and behind-the-scenes anecdotes. It dives into the inspiration and creation of segments, the most unforgettable guest lines, memorable crew member moments and, of course, an index of cars.
Like the show itself, the book is more about the comedians than the cars (or coffee). But anyone who’s ever watched it knows that Jerry always chooses killer cars in which to navigate and ask his friends about their profession. It’s a real kicker to watch, and the book promises to be almost as fun as the series.
If you’re looking for a great gift idea for anyone who loves comedians, cars, or coffee, get The Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee Book. It is now for sale on Amazon.
