Jay Leno, Jerry Seinfeld, Comedians in Car Getting Coffee


Call it Comedian Getting His First-Ever Coffee.

Jay Leno claims to be enjoying his inaugural cup of joe in the latest episode of Jerry Seinfeld's hit online series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.

The funny fellows set off in a 1949 Porsche 356/2, one of the first performance cars the German automaker ever produced, and head to Jones Coffee Roasters in Pasadena, Calif.

"Having my first cup of coffee, ever," Jay reveals as they peruse the massive bags of beans stacked in the back of the trendy café, grinders whirring in the background.

But there are plenty of opportunities for comedy first, when Seinfeld asks owner Chuck Jones about the high-end civet coffee, made from beans that have been consumed (and subsequently excreted) by a small cat called the Asian palm civet.

"I want to meet the guy who was picking through some cat poop [and said], ‘Hey…you know it tastes like crap!'" Jay cracks as Jerry doubles over in laughter. "What's the advantage? Why don't I eat regular dog poop and save $75? You know what I'm saying? Go to the park!"

So...presumably they didn't try that kind.

"What kind of spoon is this?" the Tonight Show host asks as he added milk and sugar to his first-ever coffee, joking about the tiny spoon's usefulness in the cocaine department.

And judging by the look on his face after he took his first sip, he wasn't first in line at Jones the next day.

His verdict? "It's horrible."

"You're not gonna get it in one cup, OK, so do the best you can," Seinfeld encourages. 

"Oh god, that's awful," Jay grimmaces, taking another sip, causing Jerry to burst into laughter once again.

Mission accomplished there, at least.
