The 13 Best Moments From Jerry Seinfeld's AMA
With Season 8 of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee set to kick off, Jerry Seinfeld jumped on Reddit for his third AMA. Questions ranged from advice on stand-up to questions about Comedians in Cars, and, of course, plenty about Seinfeld.

...and that guy who decided to pitch an episode of Seinfeld
Not only is this guy the guy who walks up to a complete stranger to say he's pretty sure he can do your job as well as you, he pitched an episode of a show that's been off the air for nearly 20 years. Improbably, Seinfeld told him to go for it. Now Jerry Seinfeld is waiting to hear you pitch an episode of the world's most famous sitcom. What do you do? You disappear and never pitch it (the edit above notes that he got "super busy at work"). That's one to tell the grandkids.
The new season of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee launches on June 16 and will feature episodes with including Lorne Michaels, Margaret Cho, Jim Gaffigan, John Oliver, J.B. Smoove, and Judd Apatow.
