When you create and star in one of the most successful and popular sitcoms of all time, it’s all right to take a break from the spotlight for a while. Still, Jerry Seinfeld has been largely absent from show business since 1998, when Seinfeld when off the air for the last time while it was still at the top of the ratings and on everyone’s mind.
Thankfully, the internet has given him a way to get back into the swing of things. He’s got a new web series called Comedian In Cars Getting Coffee, and it’s a great way to get to know Seinfeld all over again and see him relaxing, driving and drinking some joe with old friends from show business.
So far, he’s had some pretty interesting guests, including his buddy and Seinfeld co-creator Larry David, Ricky Gervais, Alec Baldwin, Carl Reiner and Mel Brooks. His latest guest is a familiar one, and someone who hasn’t been heard from in a while. Michael Richards, who played Kramer with him on Seinfeld, takes a ride in a beat up Volkswagen bus and shares a drink. And if anyone is curious, yes, they do discuss the incident that took place a few years ago where Richards made some racially charged comments at a stand-up show. See for yourself below (via Vulture).
