Jerry Seinfeld has been doing stand-up comedy since the mid-1970s, and through the ups and downs of showbiz, he's learned some valuable lessons on careers, failure - and bees.
He may be famous for his hit sitcom "Seinfeld" and his children's flick "Bee Movie," but his current Netflix show, "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee," offers the same hilarious observational humor and witty banter, with a bit of life advice thrown in. The 11th season, which premiered July 19, features guests like Eddie Murphy, Matthew Broderick, and, for the second time, Ricky Gervais.The show's concept, for those who didn't guess it from the title, is simple: Seinfeld takes another famous comedian out for coffee, while driving a car that perfectly suits his guest's personality. Seinfeld is a proud car nerd, and after years of resistance, has become an avid coffee drinker.
In an interview with NPR, Seinfeld explained why he loves coffee. "We want to do a lot of stuff; we're not in great shape," he said. "We didn't get a good night's sleep. We're a little depressed. Coffee solves all these problems in one delightful little cup."
Here are the best tidbits of career advice from both Seinfeld and his guests.
