...coming 'very, very soon'
Don't care if this turns out to be a shitty advert or something. I'm in.
the fact that he says that it's not NOT comedians in cars getting coffee suggests it'll be some kind of self-made webisode type o thing. fine by me. i love CICGC.
Alec Baldwin, Sarah Silverman, Louis CK and that old bloke especially.
maybe i should check out 30 rock
his technique is exactly the same as his dramatic acting, which makes watching some of the old shit he was in surprisingly funny.
where at the end he thanked Jerry for everything and Jerry told him he's one of the funniest men around was touching
i'm a bit uneasy about all that though, same as in curb where they gave him a chance to make fun of it. think it was a bit easy.
the interview with him on er Leno or Letterman the day after, he just seems shellshocked
but i still think making a joke of it is in poor taste. fair enough being like 'you fucked up, now move on with your life'
not entirely convinced about this yet either, but who knows
Six minutes of Jason Alexander looking like your gran
oh well, least i can get away with watching it at work
this is the thing, i get it
Some of them were decent but its mostly just two guys driving about, patting each other on the back for their great success, pretending to talk about "the craft" while not being as funny as they are on their shows. Its the level of smugness that does it for me. The ricky gervais one nearly broke my smug-o-meter.
Newman steals the show in this new one. He looks exactly the same as he did in the seinfeld days. Jason alexander DOES look like a gran, its very strange.
one youtube comment on the louis one 'rich people in cars getting coffee' made me laugh, but surely SURELY you aren't complaining about this being about nothing and nothing happening, because...
Usually just ends up with Seinfeld going back to that cliche that comedians were weird when they were young and thats what makes them funny, as if thats insightful.
What I find strange about it is that most of his interactions with the other comedians are eerily similar to the ones Larry David('s character) has in Curb, which is meant to be a bit of a send up that vacuous LA, celebrity class, lifestyle. Constantly driving past identical mansions or going places to eat, nothing else. Terse, joyless conversation, the subtext to which is a willy waving competition about who's celeb status is worth more.
Still, thought the michael richards one was good.
and the way it's presented like some twee, low budget thing when it isn't at all.
Not sure why
