On a recent episode of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, Jerry Seinfeld went on a java date with the hilarious Briget Everett. During their conversation Seinfeld GOES OFF on a comic who Everett is friends with.
Later in the episode, they stop by a psychic and she mentions a
Seinfeld and Everett say the comics name at the same time but it’s bleeped out again. Who is the comedian whose name was bleeped?
I have my theories, but I decided to snoop around on the internet and see what others thought.
Decider listed these clues from the episode…
• The person is someone who Jerry could have conceivably “forgotten about,” implying that he’s not a super well-known name.
• It’s someone who’s been negative about Seinfeld and railed against comedians who weren’t as “wild and dangerous” as he was.
• It’s a comedian who, according to Seinfeld, “sucks,” “wasn’t funny,” and “didn’t get anywhere.”
• He’s someone who did a “stupid fucking voice” and purports to be “scary or dangerous.”
A few comics were mentioned including Anthony Jeselnik who tweeted that he was in the clear.
After my own investigation, I am pleased to announce he wasn’t talking about me. https://t.co/2WBjKpgq6X— Anthony Jeselnik (@anthonyjeselnik) July 19, 2019
Bernadette Giacomazzo at Your Tango blog had some interesting ideas, which I tent to agree with…
“A full Reddit thread was started where fans of the show began speculating about the identity of the “bleeped out” comedian in question. It didn’t take long for people to deduce that the comedian in question was Bobcat Goldthwait.”
Apparently, Goldthwait threw shade at Seinfeld in an interview with The Baltimore Sun. Goldthwait said to The Sun.
“I watched that Jerry Seinfeld movie about stand-up (Comedian). I don’t know, man. Sitting around with a bunch of guys, slaving over a new ‘clapper’ joke? For God’s sake. People are gonna think all comics are crazy, because here’s a guy with $450 million, bummed out because he can’t get laughs at an Improv. Crazy! ‘Dude, if it bums you out, don’t go on stage. You’ve got $450 million. You can pay these people to clap.'”
That might piss you off, Even if you have half a billion dollars. Everett was clearly uncomfortable with the whole thing but it makes for some exciting TV.
And, btw, the latest episodes of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee is really worth watching. With all his complaining, it’s hard not to wish that you’d get a call…
“Hey, it’s Jerry. Wanna get coffee?”
