In a send-up of Jerry Seinfeld’s “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” the comics take to the streets in search of their next score
Jerry Seinfeld gets to share his love of classic cars and comedy with his web series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.” The popular interview series got a dark parody on E!, though, when Tony Hale joined Joel McHale for “Comedians in Cars Getting Cocaine.”
Hale immediately started talking about all the cocaine dealers in his neighborhood, giddy with excitement as they headed out to find a score. They talked about Hale’s early career in New York, when he was working in the theater … and therefore couldn’t afford cocaine.
When McHale got to Hale’s Hollywood career, he started by asking about “Arrested Development,” but it was obviously the wrong call. Hale took exception to being defined by one role, and was much happier when they went back to talking about the Emmy he won for his work on HBO’s “Veep.”
Things take a dark turn when Hale took McHale to his dealer’s house and decided, “I’m not paying this time.”
Give McHale credit, though, as he kept lobbing questions Hale’s way, despite his growing terror at the escalating situation.
