Case in point, Jerry Seinfeld has his web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee available to watch for free through Sony’s Crackle, and the eighth season is on its way this summer.
The first Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee season 8 trailer has just debuted online, teasing Seinfeld’s fascinating discussions with some of comedy’s most brilliant minds. This season includes Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels, director Judd Apatow, former Daily Show correspondent and Last Week Tonight host John Oliver, and plenty more. Watch below!

Jerry Seinfeld‘s popular web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee has been quietly chugging along since 2012, producing six seasons in four years and amassing a murderer’s row of special guests. The trailer for the seventh season has arrived and it very much resembles what we’ve seen before: Seinfeld gets in a classic car of some kind, picks up a beloved comedian or actor, and chats with them while they drive to a coffee shop or restaurant. This loose format pretty much allows the show to be whatever it wants to be and do whatever it wants do, so why fix what isn’t broken?
Anyway, the new season looks like more of the same (not a bad thing), with new guests that include the likes of Will Ferrell, Garry Shandling, Steve Martin, Kathleen Madigan, and some guy named Barack Obama. Have you heard of him? Watch the Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee season 7 trailer after the jump.

For the past month, we’ve been reporting on the progress of a Kickstarter campaign to bring back the cult favorite, movie-mocking TV series Mystery Science Theater 3000.

The Mystery Science Theater 3000 Kickstarter is now the largest crowd-funded online video of all-time, and the campaign made so much that they’ll actually be able to make 14 new episodes. It truly is a great time to be alive. Read More »

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably heard about the special Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary special that aired this past Sunday night. It was a three and a half hour trip down memory lane, featuring a true dream-team of comedy’s elite.
Among the many highlights came early in the show when a 5-minute video montage was shown of cast members’ first auditions. Not fake auditions, like we’ve seen in the past. The actual, real auditions for stars like Will Ferrell, Bill Hader, Amy Poehler, Jimmy Fallon as well as classic cast members like Dan Aykroyd, Chevy Chase, Gilda Radner and John Belushi. Here, you can see them in the auditions that would change their lives forever. It’s pretty special.
As a bonus though, there are also auditions from people who didn’t make the cut. They’re people you’ve definitely heard of who auditioned, but didn’t make the show.
Below, check out the Saturday Night Live auditions video as well a few of the other highlights from the special including Celebrity Jeopardy, Wayne’s World and more. Read More »

What a great time for ’90s nostalgia. The Backstreet Boys are touring again, crop tops are coming back into fashion, and Disney is going ahead with the Boy Meets World spinoff Girl Meets World. Now we also have reunions from the Seinfeld and Full House casts to look forward to.
While appearing on the WFAN show Boomer & Carton yesterday, Jerry Seinfeld confirmed that the “big, huge, gigantic” project he’s been working on with Larry David is indeed a Seinfeld reunion, as has been rumored. He declined to give details, however, saying only that Jason Alexander would play George Costanza, and that other characters from the show would also be involved.
Seinfeld said that the “secret project,” which he described as a “short-ish form” one-off, was neither a Super Bowl commercial nor a Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee episode — but that “it is not not those things, either.” Whatever it is, we shouldn’t have to wait long to see it, as Seinfeld also promised that it’d be released “very, very soon.” [Variety]
After the jump, the men of Full House, who’ve already re-teamed for an Super Bowl ad, tease a potential sequel with “a twist.”

Jerry Seinfeld‘s thoughts on Man of Steel might have been the most popular quote from the comedian’s recent Reddit AMA, but the biggest news was the announcement of a mystery reunion with Larry David. David co-created Seinfeld with the comedian and took some of the show’s sensibility — David’s half of it, at least — to HBO with Curb Your Enthusiasm. The pair remain friends, and they collaborated on a massive Seinfeld/Curb crossover a few years back. Seinfeld revealed in the AMA the pair are working on a “big, huge, gigantic” project. The identity of that project has now been revealed. Read More »
