One night during the recent heat wave, tormented with insomnia, I lay under the ceiling fan and prayed for death. Hm. Perhaps praying for a swimming pool would have been better…
Giving up on sleep I decided to mooch about online and see what Ricky Gervais was up to. On Twitter he posted a link to something he did with Jerry Seinfeld.
It’s called Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee and his episode is Mad Man in a Death Machine.
It’s as strangely compelling as much as it’s funny, especially if you’re a lifelong comedy hound like me. I don’t want to say too much; it’s a just bit of fun after all. But I will say this: I was mistakenly under the impression that this was a Gervais project. It isn’t, it’s Seinfeld’s. And if you like comedians or old cars or coffee, then like me, you’ll love it. Especially with a hot cup of joe in your hand.
It’s a delicious 11 minutes and for fun afterwards you can click on the ‘Spare Parts’ buttons for outtakes. Enjoy it for a great coffee break and have a good weekend everybody!
