Jerry Seinfeld Debuts the First Look at Ellen on ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’


That is a lot of energy coming
at a person on a daily basis. Every day. No wonder your eyes are
so lit up all the time. You’re getting a lot of juice. I know. You get an amazing crowd. These people are fabulous. I know. They are fabulous. [APPLAUSE] And it really is everyday. I can’t believe
that this has been your whole life for 15 years,
and this is my first time. Well, you were on the east
coast, so I never see you. And you’re always working
and traveling and stuff. Right, right. Or you’re working on cars. Yes. Or getting coffee or something. Yes, we’re getting coffee. But I shot one of your episodes. We had so much fun. I’ve been watching
it this past week. Is it good? It’s so funny. So Ellen and I got
into this conversation. Actually, it was about horses. Do you recall the conversation? No. And I, as on my show, like
to tell people what to do. You know, they tell me what’s
going on in their life. And I go, well, I’ll tell you
what I think you should do. And I said to you,
would you like my advice about Portia getting
another horse? Oh, yes. You remember it now? I remember that now. Yeah. And Ellen did not
want my advice, but she was trying to be nice. So she went, yeah, OK. The way only she
can do it, I can’t do it as funny as she did it. And then we got the giggles. And it was a lot of fun. It was really fun. Yeah. So you’ve seen the
show, hopefully. And if you haven’t, you should. But we’re just walking
and talking in Montecito, where I live. And we go to this
restaurant that I always go to, that you knew
we were going to go to. And literally
everyone– they moved all of the tables
out of the way, except for the
table in the center. And everyone there
is still eating. And we’re sitting in the middle
of the restaurant with cameras everywhere, like we’re some
kind of live dinner play. You knew everyone was
watching and listening to our conversation. But what happens, and
this happens on the show all the time, is at first
they go, oh, my God. This is Jerry Seinfeld
and Ellen DeGeneres. And then, they go
back to eating. They just kind of get– I don’t think they
listened to us. There was a table. I was aware. Because doing this show, I
have to have peripheral vision. I have to know everything
that’s going on. I was watching, but
listening to you intently. But also, there was a table. They were just having
the time– they couldn’t believe their luck. They were obviously tourists. And they wandered
into that restaurant. And they’re like, oh, my
God, and listening to us. And we were cracking
each other up and having a great conversation. They were listening
to every word we said. Yeah. And then, someone had a phone
recording the entire thing, also. Well, we were recording it, too. Everyone’s recording
everything anyway. That’s true. But anyway, now they’re
saying we should show a clip of that episode. OK. Here’s a little clip. The shows not finished yet. But here we are
talking and laughing. Keys are not in the car. See, I told you, you shouldn’t
leave the keys in the car. I didn’t touch them. I didn’t either. You didn’t put them
in your pocket? Maybe I did. I must have, but
I don’t have them. I swear. They’re not in– It was to teach you a lesson. And you should always– [LAUGHTER] I could’ve let that go longer. If you had any balls,
which you don’t– I should have let it
go really, really long. I don’t think it was
going any place funny. Had we gone longer– How’d you get them out? How’d you do it? When you walked around the car– That’s funny. You just said, it wasn’t funny. No, the way you did it is funny. What you did is not funny. [LAUGHTER] So yeah, we get
back in the car– [APPLAUSE] I just couldn’t believe
that I got in the car, and he had just left
the keys in there. And, I mean, it’s a safe town. There’s no crime there. But still, I was– Yes, and it’s a TV show. But not really. People don’t usually steal
cars from sets of TV shows. It was not a set. We were in a parking lot. There were lots of other– anyway, and that was
the car you chose to suggest my personality. Yes, the Toyota FJ 40. It’s kind of a Jeep, but it’s
a Toyota from the early ’70s. And it’s just got that real– you know, it’s just
relatable and real. It just reminded me of you. That was very sweet. I was touched by that. So the concept is you
pick someone up in a car. We talk, and we drive
around for a while. And then, we go have coffee. Now, it’s the middle of the day. I only have like one
cup in the morning. And then, I don’t
have coffee again. We’re sitting
there, and I thought it was just the
title of the show, Comedians In Cars Having Coffee. Oh, my God. The amount of coffee you
drink is not good for you. Yeah, no. It wasn’t good. You really do drink
the entire time. The whole time. I just started drinking coffee. When? Just a few years ago. I never drank it my
entire adult life. Until this series? Is that why– Just before the series. I drank this drink. And I go, this is
a fantastic drink. And it really gets you chatty. [LAUGHTER] So I felt, why don’t I do a show
with comedians drinking coffee, getting chatty? Yeah. And that’s how I
started doing it. But when they come
over with the pot, don’t you think it’s
nice that they go, would you like some more coffee? They don’t say, would
you like more pasta? Would you like more steak? They say, would you
like more coffee? So whenever the guy comes
over, I would say, sure. It seems nice. He never stopped
drinking coffee. And we were there hours. Yeah, hours. And you never peed. You never got up. [LAUGHTER] And you sleep at night? Yes. Yeah, it doesn’t
bother me, really. I was having one right before. That’s crazy. I love coffee, now. Just black, right? No, I add a little
half and half. OK. Or black, I don’t care. I love any kind of coffee. Wow. Why did it take you so long? Why so late in life? I didn’t know about it. You know how comedians
can be very out of it, in certain ways? No. OK. What do you mean comedians
can be out of it? Coffee has been everywhere,
all over the world, forever. Like, you’ve never– You know a lot of
comedians that have major chunks of
dysfunction or ignorance about giant things of life. They just don’t know. Coffee is not a giant thing. Coffee is– I just missed it. I missed it. I didn’t know that it was great. It’s great. It is. It’s a great drink. It’s delicious. Yeah. Yeah. It has a unique quality though,
I think, in conversation. I think coffee makes people
kind of warm up to each other. That’s what I find,
doing the show. I think tequila’s
better for that. [APPLAUSE] All right, we have
to take our break. But tequila and coffee
together, that way– I don’t know. I’ve never had that. I guess you could have that. I don’t know. Anyway, somebody
is mouthing out. Does that exist? Yes. Tequila and coffee? Oh, it exists? So these alcoholic
coffee drinks– these are people that go, I am
going to get trashed and alert, tonight. Yes. I’m going to remember tomorrow. Yes. That’s exactly what it would be. Yeah. I want to be whatever the
opposite of tired and sober is. Yes. That’s what I want to be. Right. I don’t know that mood,
but I guess it happens. No, you’ll find out.
