Jerry Seinfeld seems to be everywhere lately. He's back on the stand-up circuit for the first time in a while. Most recently, however, he's been 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—you can read that interview here.)
The collector coffee-table book sells for $35—but right now, at Amazon, you can pick up a copy for just a bit north of twenty bucks. It's a great holiday gift idea for anyone who loves cars. Or comedians. Or coffee. And/or Seinfeld.
Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee premiered in 2012 and ran for 84 episodes across 11 seasons, with the final show airing on Netflix in 2019. While Jerry claims to have no plans to produce any more episodes of the show, he has now adapted portions of nearly every episode of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee into a 352-page coffee-table book.
Appropriately titled The Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee Book (Simon & Schuster), the volume features excerpts and images from Seinfeld's numerous interviews with various comedians. He has reminisced with Larry David, bantered with Steve Martin and Eddie Murphy, reunited with the cast of Seinfeld, and even paid a visit to President Barack Obama in the Oval Office.
Timed to the 10th anniversary of the show's debut, the book is full of behind-the-scenes photos and anecdotes. It dives into the inspiration and creation of segments, the most unforgettable lines from guests, memorable moments by crew members, and, of course, an index of the cars.
Like the show itself, the book is more about the comedians than the cars (or the coffee). But anyone who's ever watched it knows that Jerry always picks killer cars in which to cruise around and interview his pals about their craft. It's a real kick to watch, and the book promises to be almost as much fun as the show.
If you're looking for a great gift idea for anyone who loves comedians, cars, or coffee, pick up The Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee Book. It's on sale now at Amazon.
