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.
