Actual comics on Jerry Seinfeld‘s coming Crackle run include Will Ferrell, Steve Martin, and Garry Shandling
President Barack Obama will roll with Jerry Seinfeld to start off Season 7 of Crackle digital series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.”
“Comedians in Cars” returns with the Obama coup Wednesday, Dec. 30 at 11:30 p.m. ET on Crackle. If that date looks earlier than you expected the series to return, than that’s because it is. Crackle shifted the seventh season up a week, just making the very end of 2015.
The episode featuring President Obama was shot at the White House earlier this month, and features both the president and Seinfeld driving a 1963 Corvette Stingray Split Window Coupe, and talking about life in the White House over coffee.
“Growing up in the ’60s my kid dream was always to be an astronaut — doing a comedy show with President Obama in and around the White House felt like going into space,” Seinfeld said.
He continued: “‘How did I get here?’ ‘Is this really happening?’ The President’s humor and generosity are the only reasons this was even possible. He was so easy and fun to be with. Being president and just a cool guy to hang out with at the same time made the experience my own personal moonwalk. It was an unforgettable day.”
Crackle GM Eric Berger added: “Like everything else Jerry Seinfeld does, he has managed to break records with ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’ — we’re so proud of this season that we just couldn’t wait until the New Year for people to see it.”
The series is executive produced by Jerry Seinfeld and Embassy Row. Seasons 1 through 6 are currently streaming on Crackle.
Watch the trailer above. This season, Seinfeld compares cars to humans, picks up Ferrell at a playground, and breaks down on the side of the road with Martin.
Obama is at the tail-end of the clip, at least, he is in audio form.
