Louis CK to Appear on Jerry Seinfeld's Show, 'Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee' [VIDEO]
Louis CK will be featured on the third season of Jerry Seinfeld's show, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, Seinfeld revealed during his commentary on the Mets game on Sept. 17.
Seinfeld is a New York Mets fan and joined the SNY broadcast team in their Citi Field booth during Tuesday night's game against the San Francisco Giants. While speaking to the guys -- Gary Cohen, Keith Hernandez, and Ron Darling -- he talked about what he had been up to during the day. He told them that earlier that day, he went out on Louis CK's boat to film an episode of his show Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.
Seinfeld and CK are good friends in real life. Seinfeld guest starred in Season 3 of Louie. He played CK's rival in a setting where the network executives are looking to replace David Letterman on The Late Show, and both Seinfeld and CK are up for consideration.
The other time Seinfeld and CK have shared screen time together was as part of the HBO's Talking Funny (April 2012), which also featured Ricky Gervais and Chris Rock. The four comedians discussed their comedic crafts in the HBO special. On the show, when Seinfeld said he believed in rehashing old jokes that were a hit with the audience every time he toured, CK suggested that people actually came to see the comedian and not some live re-run of an older show.
Seinfeld has received some criticism for only inviting white male comedians on his show. During the commentary, Seinfeld also addressed those criticisms, he joked that his perceived political incorrectness might encourage people to make him do Al Sharpton's show.
