I think you would be viewed as a bit deluded if you did not think that the legacy of Jerry Seinfeld as a comedic legend is pretty much cemented in stone. His career as a stand-up comedian, as well as his starring role in the critically acclaimed sitcom Seinfeld, made him one of the most respected figures in the entertainment industry who has influenced other comedic titans such as Judd Apatow and Kevin Hart. Since 2012, his television show Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee has been a very personal project to him and, in an interview with Variety, he discussed various aspects of show.
Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee
One of the things which was talked about was what fans of the show can expect to see in Season 10:
“The fun thing about doing this show, is every guest that walks on the show completely changes the entire show. There is no similarity between the time I spent with Zach Galifianakis and the time I spent with Jerry Lewis or Alec Baldwin. The guest, the place and the car — the entire context of the show — is so different. Obviously, I’m the only element that gets repeated, and what I like is I get to just go with that when it becomes something different — like Zach Galifianakis and I walking by a donut shop, and we just kind of said, ‘Gee, we’re both in the mood for a donut,’ and then we walked in there, and I said, ‘Let’s just do the whole show right here,’ and we did.”
Jerry Seinfeld also gave some insight into how he is able to secure high-profile guests who do not usually give interviews:
“I think people are attracted to the idea that I’m not looking to elevate myself in any way with this show. I’m doing this as a gigantic art project for me. I’m already well-known. It’s not about money. It’s not about exposure. It’s just an art project with cans of Play-Doh, and I think people know that. I don’t want to plug anything. I’m not trying to help your career. I don’t want you to help my career. Let’s just do this for the pure thing of it.”
