In the second installment of Jerry Seinfeld's new web series Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee, Jerry scares the bejezus out of Ricky Gervais. Hilarity ensues.

Seinfeld picks up the British funnyman in a 1967 Austin-Healey 3000, which Jerry claims is a car that says "Damnit I love British sports cars and I will go down with that ship if I have to." Upon arrival Gervais admits that he did not know the Austin was a British-built car.

On the the way to get coffee, outside of Manhattan, they ponder why the homeless have such wonderful hair and the morality of the death penalty – oh, and Gervais is scared stupid by riding in the tiny British roadster.

Click below to see the video, find out how what Jerry finds so funny in this screen grab, and if Gervais eventually suffers from a nervous breakdown in a sports car built in his native land.

      I totally have no use for someone that has that much of a problem, real or acting , riding in a car like that.

      What's ridiculous is that the show is supposed to be about cars, except there was no info about the car past the first minute. And seriously I know in that car you can probably feel the speed more but in NY traffic there is no shot they ever went a shot over 70. Cars were passing them in almost every shot, grow a pair Ricky. Huge Seinfeld fan, but Jerry you already left on top, why come back to ruin what you tried so hard to protect?

      This is terrible. Seinfeld is a bad actor that is always playing a comedian.

      It's called "Comedians in Cars" and they asked Ricky Gervais? Had it been called "Smug, self-satisfied twats who haven't done anything funny in 15 years in cars" it may have been nearer the mark. Seriously, stop giving that man the oxygen of publicity...

        Imo he is amazing. Extras is just maybe one of the best shows ever.

        "Extras" is great. Better than "The Office"

      Cars = yes Ricky Gervais = yes Jerry Seinfeld = no I cannot stand Mr. Seinfeld,not sure why people find him humourous. Then again the same could be said of Grevais and other British comedians. If there was a way of muting Mr. Seinfeld only,I would watch. Sadly this is my 1st and last time checking this out.

      The more apt title would be " 2 pretentious gits fetch coffee " .

      I am absolutely loving this show. I know that there has been some talk of there not being enough about the cars, but one must keep in mind that this isn't a car show. It's a talk show hosted by Jerry, and the car itself is one of the guests. I think it is a fantastic premise, and so far it has been done well. I look forward to the future episodes!

      Gotta admit its pretty funny and original. Now im saying this cause im taking it for what it IS, not what i THOUGHT it would be. Im sure most people are gonna complain there's not enough about the car, "ohh its just two guy giggling in a dime a dozen Austin 3000", and more importantly where are all the Porsches'. I say enjoy it for what it is and if your not a amused then keep scrollin'

          On that MAD haterade today. Why should this concern you so much to where you'd try and denounce everyone who says it's entertaining? Go outside for a while, bro.

          And honestly, despite the presence of Mr. Seinfeld, I had hopes for this "show" as I do with anything involving automobiles.

          Cute that you insinuate that I've been sitting here all day when my posts span 4 minutes aside from this one at 1:10am... Again, "Please quote one part that was funny." You can not, can you? It isn't funny.

          Yeah I noticed that they were TRYING really hard to be funny but I said "one part that WAS funny". Not pretend funny. Gervais "fear" was about as real as Seinfelds "laugh".

          Seems pretty apt to me given that what made Top Gear particularly popular was the silly things done with cars. This is a different take. It's not (necessarily) about specs or speed runs. It's about the experience of being in the car. It's also full of some really lovely pictures of a couple really beautiful cars. Believe it or not, I actually really enjoyed the shots showing the immaculately kept headliner in the Beetle. Funny parts? Gervais' fear in general. The general awkwardness of two well-known comedians having to reach for something to talk about, let alone something funny. Larry Davis - well, just Larry Davis in general.

        Its Seinfeld with guests in cars. I did note the lack of a ton of car details but then again it's the comedy aspect that makes Top Gear so good.
