Hot on the heels of our coverage from Handsome Coffee Roasters in Los Angeles, it seems Jerry Seinfeld and his “Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee” program have found yet another excellent specialty coffee bar in which to film. This time it’s in Manhattan, at the iconic original Everyman Espresso location on 13th Avenue.
Jerry was spotted departing the cafe with sneaky-famous comedian Todd Barry, in a photo snapped by Everyman Espresso proprietor Sam Penix:
Toddy Barry, while not exactly “can’t go grocery shopping famous”, has appeared in heaps of great television comedies over the last 10 years, from Home Movies to Bob’s Burgers, Flight Of The Conchords to Wonder Showzen. Mr. Barry has the distinction of having appeared in both Louie – Louie CK’s acclaimed and remarkable show on FX – and Lucky Louie, Mr. CK’s ill-fated program for HBO back in the mid-2000s. We’re fans.
And we’re even bigger fans of this new trend on “Comedians In Cars”, whose first two seasons focused on neighborhood joints and diners, but is now squarely setting its sets on high end specialty coffee bars. Seinfeld was even spotted with Jay Leno at Jones Coffee in Pasadena, California in October.
Todd Barry is said to be an Everyman regular, and Patton Oswalt is a fixture at Handsome Coffee Roasters, so perhaps by letting the comedians choose their venues, Mr. Seinfeld’s program is being taken to some of America’s best cafes by dint of happy accident. Whatever the reason, we love the outcome, and can’t wait til Season Three begins airing online. Who knows where they’ll film next!
Here’s another vérité snap from Mr. Penix:
