Oh baby! Everyone’s favorite combination of car driving, comedian chatting and coffee drinking is back and Kristen Wiig is along for the ride! Seinfeld picks up Wiig in a 1964 Volvo in the hipster neighborhood of Silverlake and they head over to the beloved Los Feliz mainstay House of Pies for the new season of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.
It’s nice. Kristen Wiig discusses her education at Groundlings as she and Seinfeld pore over books, the difficulties of having left SNL, and the joys of editing sketches on the fly during the tension of a workday at the venerated sketch show.
The whole thing is charming — and like the best episodes of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, it feels like you’re overhearing a discussion between to people comfortable with themselves enjoying a good cup of coffee. Lovely.
