Jerry Seinfeld does coffee, cars with Jon Stewart

Ricky Gervais (L) and Jerry Seinfeld are all laughs during an episode of Comedian in Cars Getting Coffee.

Eighteen-wheelers, station wagons, vintage AMC cars and Jaguars have little in common. Unless, of course, Jerry Seinfeld and one of his comedian friends are the occupants in one of the vehicles and they’re going for coffee.

The fourth season of the web series, “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” will debut June 19. It will be the first episode in a new five-season deal with the Crackle network.

The new season introduction video (see below) shows Seinfeld in short clips with his guests for this season, Jon Stewart, George Wallace, Sarah Jessica Parker, Robert Klein and Aziz Ansari.

Since its debut, the show’s premise has been simple. Seinfeld drives fellow comedians around in rare and expensive cars (and sometimes not-so rare and inexpensive cars) and they go for coffee.

The banter is quick and laughs plenty. Sometimes, there’s a poignant moment or two along the way.

David Letterman, Don Rickles, Seth Meyers, Mel Brooks, Sarah Silverman, Michael Richards, Tina Fey, Chris Rock and George Costanza are among the guests who have appeared with Seinfeld during the first three seasons.

The series has been an underground success. Crackle.com’s website reports that since its debut in 2012, “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” has delivered more than 40 million streams.
