Seinfeld Participates in Facebook Q&A to Promote ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’

comedians-in-cars-getting-coffee-597x325Jerry Seinfeld’s eponymous show ended in 1998, and, “yada,yada, yada” he now stars in one of the most successful web series of all time.

To promote ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’ (CICGC), Seinfeld dropped by Facebook’s New York office last week to take part in a Q&A with fans on the CICGC page. In January, he did a very successful Reddit AMA. During the Facebook Q&A, he answered fan questions about his first car, road rage, and his sneaker collection, among others.

When asked whether he “enjoyed working with Crackle more than going through a traditional network,” Seinfeld replied: “Yes, Crackle has been heaven for us. They only support and never interfere and that is an artists dream.”

Showrunners and actors are expressing this sentiment more and more since Netflix introduced its paradigm-shifting ‘House of Cards.’ Of course, ‘House of Cards’ is not a web series, but it can certainly be attributed with opening the flood gates for successful examples of original content outside of linear.

Below is a selection of Seinfeld’s best answers from the Q&A, including a hint that hit guests may be returning in the future and that ‘Napolean Dynamite’ is his favorite comedy movie of the past 15 years. Read more
