i’ve been watching comedians in cars getting coffee on and off as i get a few minutes. i got hooked when i listened to the howard stern interview with jerry seinfeld — listening to jerry describe the mechanics of comedy and his fascination with why jokes work made me want to understand it, too.
that is what comedians in cars is. it is jerry doing seinfeld-like stuff, but it is also jerry collecting data about comedy. he’s analyzing, testing, observing and trying to show us all what funny is. i love it.
