The second episode of Jerry Seinfeld's Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee is out, and while it's as funny and offbeat as the first episode with Larry David, the most interesting aspect of the new episode is Ricky Gervais' obvious fear and discomfort in the passenger seat of a 1967 Austin-Healey 3000 Mk III.

Despite Gervais and the 150-horsepower Healey being from the same island nation, the comedian apparently has no faith whatsoever in his countrymen or their design and construction techniques, much less Seinfeld's driving.

In fact, he grips the dashboard and wheezes supplications to a god he doesn't believe in. In a high-pitched voice. With a priceless expression. At about 50 mph on city streets.

Ricky, you're a funny guy, but sometimes, you're even funnier when you're not trying to be.

  1. To be fair, parts of the FDR Drive with their narrow lanes, war-zone paving, abrupt directional jogs, sudden darkness with buildings overhead, and semis + taxis + terrified tourists + aggressive locals will scare many people. Though he's not actually in any real TRAFFIC.
