Ever wish you could take a car ride with some of the funniest people on earth just to hear the banter?

Remember the guy that tells Jerry Seinfeld to “Take the pen!” at his parent’s retirement community only to double cross Jerry. The double-crossing pen character’s name was Jack and he was played by New York comedian Sandy Baron. I took a ride with Sandy and our agent once to get coffee. I laughed and learned as I listened to this classic comic tell stories. Now one of America’s premiere comic minds lets you take a similar ride.

Starting June 19, 2104, Jerry Seinfeld’s web series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” begins its fourth season. Jerry Seinfeld picks up where Sandy and I left off as a choice number of today’s best comics minds go for rides in cars that are absolute classics to get a cup off coffee.

Each episode is a chance to see what makes the comic mind function and to also see what comics find funny. I learn something from every episode as Seinfeld asks everything from the most mundane to some penetrating questions. Some of past favorite guest have been Howard Stern, Larry David, Louis C.K., Tina Fey and David Letterman. Each guest hops in a classic car with comic superstar Seinfeld and takes a ride to everything from New Jersey diners to hipsters hangouts.

Put a date in your calendar for Noon each Thursday beginning on June 19, 2014. Episodes launch Thursdays but can be viewed at any time.

Enjoy the ride as you expand your mind. After all, cruising with creative minds isn’t a bad way to take a midday break.

  • Al, this illustrates both the power of social media to drive a product and yes, proves that people will still get behind an innovative great product. How clever, changeable and creative an approach that takes celebrities that we all recognize and places them out of their comfort zone. I want to see what they’ll do next.

    When I hear, there’s nothing new or creative ot there anymore, I point to “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” Outstanding use of innovation in the medium and media. Nice pick Al.
