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.
