On the latest episode of his web series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” Jerry Seinfeld takes Jewish radio legend Howard Stern for a spin in a vintage car and over to a Queens diner.
“This is like being with my aunt from the old country,” Seinfeld says when Stern asks the waitress for a cup of hot water instead of coffee.
The truth is, though, it feels less like an interview with an old Jew and more like a (highly entertaining) therapy session. At the beginning of the show, Stern reveals he became interested in radio because he thought of it as a way to get the attention of his radio-loving father. And as their journey continues, we see Stern worrying a lot about his diet and then turning the tables on his host with questions like “how are you sexually?” and “do you have trouble relating to people?”
Seinfeld rolls his eyes a lot, but their dynamic is pretty great. Our favorite parts: When the two bond over a shared love for Mad Magazine, and when they visit a supermarket where they play “What Does it Cost?” Among the items Seinfeld guesses the price of: A box of The Original Soupman soup.
