The Season 5 finale of Crackle’s “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” is taking host Jerry Seinfeld and his guest Jimmy Fallon off the open road and onto the high seas. While Seinfeld picked Fallon up in a 50’s Corvette convertible, the real adventure began when the two took a ride in Jerry’s Boston Whaler boat.
“It’s like a slide whistle – anyone can own one,” Seinfeld said of his nautical toy.
In order to launch the vessel into the water, Seinfeld had to get behind the wheel of yet another vehicle, his personal Land Rover SUV.
“The reason I wanted to do it is because I know you, watching me load this boat into the water is going to make you laugh.
After backing the boat into the bay, Seinfeld then had to remove his pants in order to unlatch the boat from the car. Underneath his signature jeans was a bright colored swimsuit.
“I knew it was going to get weird but I didn’t know how weird,” Fallon said. “Here it is … Jerry Seinfeld taking his pants off.”
While Seinfeld says it is impossible to not be happy in Fallon’s presence, “The Tonight Show” host did admit that there was a time in his life when he would get very angry.
“I used to really snap and just scream,” Fallon told Seinfeld.
Those days are behind him now as Fallon revealed to Seinfeld how now, he just wants everyone on his show to be happy.
“The last thing you ever ask anyone who is working for you is, ‘so how’s it going for you on the show?’” Seinfeld told Fallon.
Fallon says hosting his own late night show wasn’t so easy when he first started, telling Seinfeld his interviews used to be so quick and empty, the entire show used to come in short.
“Now I’m just so comfortable, I just talk and keep talking to people and the next thing you know, we’ll be like, yeah we’re 10 minutes over,” Fallon says. “It’s fun. I’m really in the zone now.”
Fallon explained to Seinfeld the day he knew he would be announced as the next “Tonight” host but had to keep it a secret down to the final seconds before the news went public. While his staff was out of the loop of Fallon’s promotion, they were thrilled to learn “The Tonight Show” was moving to New York – a move that helps Fallon’s quest to keep his staff as happy as possible.
“The other big moment was when we could tell everyone that we were staying in New York,” Fallon said. “When we do our show now, we’re all so happy to be where we are and have jobs and I think everyone’s in a good mood right now.”
