Video: Jerry Seinfeld brings Michael Richards along for season finale of CICGC

Jeff Glucker October 5, 2012 Hoonivercinema 12 Comments

If you didn’t already know, CICGC stands for Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, which is the title of Jerry Seinfeld’s web show about just that. It’s been a solid season involving a wide spectrum of hilarious people. The basic premise of every episode is that Seinfeld takes an old machine, calls up a comedian pal or two and then picks them up to head out for some coffee. The Alec Baldwin episode was particularly hilarious.

For the season finale, Seinfeld decided to head to Los Angeles in order to pick up an old friend. Michael Richards, who everyone (yes, everyone) remembers as Kramer from Seinfeld’s show… Seinfeld, serves as the guest for this episode. Additionally, the duo ride together in a 1962 Volkswagen double cab bus that looks resplendent in its patina’d glory and Porsche Service livery.

Click past the break to watch Seinfeld and Richards be the hilarious people they are. This episode serves to help the series go out on a rather high note, and leaves us looking forward to next season.

    There are few vehicles I'm more passionate about than the various iterations/generations of the Type II Double Cab. Flatbed! Pickup! 4 door! 4wd! Rear engine! FC! Hidden compartment under the bed! Big enough roof for a roof rack!

    It's quite literally anything you want it to be.

    On another note, I've religiously watched this show. Amazing.

    Kramer was such a great character that it felt real. I could see Michael Richards going home at night after filming and sitting in a hot tub with 3 Japanese guys and locking them into a dresser. This was good to watch. Thank you for posting.

    My favorite car from CICGC is the black 300SEL. I forgot which episode it was in, but boy that car's damn gorgeous.

    I came expecting comedy. I saw a really cool VW and two famous guys catching up with piano in the background.

    I thought it was a fitting end to a great season of Jerry's web show. There is a moment in the episode that Richards really reflects on his outburst at a comedy club as a death nail for him doing live comedy. While what he said back then was clearly wrong, it saddens me that he seems intent to never try live comedy again. Comedians are such a rare breed that I respect anyone trying new material to an audience. (currently I am tired that every comedian has to do an apology tour if they say anything out of context; Tracey Morgan, Daniel Tosh, Gilbert Godfried and others have been vilified for comments. They are comedians folks…their job is to opine on topics that many are not comfortable with)

    As an side, the Type II Doublecab is perfect. I generally of the mind to restore a classic, but the truck is perfect as is.

      Some people do material, some people are just a-holes. I only care if I laugh. I'm not here to judge anyone, I'm just here to enjoy

    That was a lot of chicken noodle soup for the soul. Fortunately, that Transporter can still haul all of it, and more.

    You know, I can kind of forgive Michael Richards for that incident he had on stage with the heckler. I haven't seen Jerry's show but I'll have to look for it.

    I can't hold anything against this guy. Everyone is prejudice against something and says things that are equally mean. He was pushed to his limit and he lashed out in an effort to hurt someone, it just happened to be that he lashed out and used a taboo word in today's society. I guess I mostly feel upset that this guy has clearly hated himself for saying what he did and that there are some people who feel that it's justified, as though saying those words negates his humanity. I find that ridiculous.

    I thought their discussion of it was sincere, and that he truly regrets that incident and sees it as the wrong, awful thing that it was. That was actually the highlight of the video for me, since I like a lot of his work (Kramer, of course, but also UHF), but the stage incident was over the line. I think I can forgive him too.

    The bit about jail was pretty funny.
