Perhaps it’s time we introduce you to Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee. This is a show where comedian Jerry Seinfeld invites a fellow comedian to take a ride with him in a fancy car to get some coffee. If you’ve never heard of it, that’s because it’s only shown on the Internet—it doesn’t come on TV.
Any show that spotlights a special car with every episode is bound to feature a Rolls-Royce at some point, and it so happens that the first, and so far only, episode of this show to do so came out about a year and a half ago, in 2012. Finally, there was a Rolls-Royce on Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee. The car was a 1960 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II (one of our favorite Rolls-Royce model names ever) and the guests was Carl Reiner.
Why haven’t we mentioned it until now? Well, we’ve been working. And playing. And living. And napping. The point is, this is a phenomenal episode and a great way to see a Rolls-Royce driven with both respect and a total absence of self-importance—these are comedians, after all.
And we know what you’re thinking: two comedians going to get some coffee? How is that a show? Isn’t that just real life?
Remember that if anyone can make even the most ordinary of moments entertaining, without all the tastelessness of “reality” TV, Seinfeld is that person. Case in point: the episode was supposed to feature only Reiner as the guest. That cup of coffee, however, turned into an invitation to meet legendary filmmaker Mel Brooks. That usually doesn’t happen when we get coffee.
The episode is a fascinating examination about what makes something funny, the careers of all three entertainers, and soup: the best kinds. Plus, the Rolls-Royce isn’t too bad, either.
