On the newest season of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, East Hampton’s Jerry Seinfeld invited some of the best comedians to join him in his quest to make people laugh and get some coffee on the way. Recently, Seinfeld scooped up Jim Carrey in California where they created quite a stir driving around in a 1976 Tahiti Blue Lamborghini Countach LP400.
Carrey and Seinfeld headed to Marina Del Rey where they sipped on coffee and brought up memories when they were first starting in comedy.
“I used to watch you at the Improv when I was starting out. You made me laugh so hard because I had just started learning to scuba dive. You did that bit about scuba diving and how the whole point of the sport is not to die,” Carrey laughingly says.
Seinfeld questioned Carrey about his stand-up and Carrey admitted his first steps into comedic celebrity involved impressions, “First I did impressions. As a lot of people start out with impressions, but I was obsessed with impressions.”
“I used to do Jesus,” Carrey joked as he and Seinfeld went down memory lane. “If that were me the Bible would be a whole different book. There’d be a scene where I’m on the cross saying, ‘Wait till my father hears about this! You guys are gonna get it.’”
Seinfeld and Carrey get personal, philosophical and silly with their conversations and about comedy during the episode.
“People come here to feel good about themselves and a laugh is actually a feeling of superiority,” Carrey expressed.
“It has to be a child-like fun to it,” Seinfeld replied.
Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, now in its sixth season, has featured comedians Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Steve Harvey, and Bill Maher in addition to Carrey. The next episode featuring The Daily Show’s new host Trevor Noah airs Wednesday at 11:30 p.m.
