Jerry Seinfeld has been very famous for a very long time, and there’s likely no end to the line of famous people that would be willing to work with him. Season 7 of Seinfeld’s Crackle series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee is no exception to that rule, and the comedian will be joined by his biggest guest yet, as President Barack Obama will soon tag along for a ride and a dose of caffeine. Oh, and the rest of the guests aren’t half bad, either.
Obama is set to show up on Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee immediately, as he’ll be a part of the Season 7 premiere next week. The episode was filmed earlier this month at the White House, and viewers can expect to see Seinfeld and the POTUS dragging the streets in a 1963 Corvette Stingray Split Window Coupe. To be expected, their conversation will revolve around life at the White House, among other aspects of Obama’s life.
Seinfeld said it was an “unforgettable day,” and called it his “own personal moonwalk,” as he said filming the episode was spiritually akin to his childhood dream of going into space. He also championed Obama’s humor and generosity as the traits responsible for this segment happening in the first place.
Audiences can look forward to a handful of other superstars making Seinfeld double over in laughter, too. The remaining five episodes of Season 7 will feature the boisterous Will Ferrell, the incomparable Steve Martin and the limelight-dodging genius Garry Shandling, as well as the always hilarious Kathleen Madigan and Sebastian Maniscalo. Considering this show has had everyone from Louis C.K. to Julia Louis-Dreyfus to Mel Brooks (and dozens of other high quality guests), it’s impossible to call this the best season yet, but it’ll likely be up there. Check out an Obama-free preview for Season 7 below.
In 2015, his penultimate year as President, Barack Obama has been all over television. Beyond his usual preempting spots from the Oval Office, he’s made some major talk show rounds, appearing onThe Daily Show, The Late Show, and Jimmy Kimmel Live!, among others. Obama has also shown up on more politically minded programs as Face the Nation, The Situation Room, NBC Nightly News and more. Some of his weirder appearances have come courtesy of Running Wild with Bear Grylls and It’s Your 50th Christmas, Charlie Brown.
Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee will kick off Season 7 on Wednesday, December 30.
