Well before James Corden turned "Carpool Karaoke" into a viral hit, Jerry Seinfeld was mining mobile entertainment for laughs. Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, his offbeat, intimate talk show that is conducted in a vintage vehicle (and includes a pit stop for caffeine/foodstuff) returns for an eighth season of ridesharing – and story sharing – between humorists, who have included everyone from Steve Martin to Don Rickles to Tina Fey to Louis C.K. (And let's not forget President Obama.)

"It seems all I have to do is sit down with someone that interests me and interesting conversations just happen," Seinfeld, 62, tells Entertainment Weekly. "I have no cards, I have no notes. Something we just can't stop … Comedians are very chatty, very inquisitive. They're like watch-repair people: They like to take everything apart." Here, he takes us under the hood of season 8 – the premiere of which is now available on Crackle – by previewing all six episodes, before reflecting an installment from the first season that featured an old friend.

Although the episode, released in January, bears the now-melancholy title "It's Great That Garry Shandling Is Still Alive," it also stands as a fitting tribute to a sharp and insightful comic mind.

"You know what's funny? We don't watch TV anymore," the comedian, 61, told PEOPLE Monday at the 15th-anniversary celebration for wife Jessica's charity, Baby Buggy.
