Maybe I'm the outlier here but I just don't think these are that funny. To me it's a bit forced and somewhat like JS's other attempt at a second hit, "The Marriage Ref." Amusing but not quite funny enough. I do like the cars though.

You're right, some of them were real clinkers, but the saving grace for the whole C.I.C.H.C. (IMO) was the segment at Carl Reiner's house with Mel Brooks. While it may not have been ROFLMAO funny, it was an interesting look at these two guys who are masters of comedy writing and early TV pioneers.

I wanna see the episode where Jerry kicks Michael Richards out of the car in Compton or Watts and makes him fend for himself

I saw a Jerry's live performance a week ago. The whiff & I were in row nine. After about an hour & 20 minutes he came back out and simply took questions from the audience for another 30 minutes. Totally down to earth guy and something I will never forget.

I saw him a few years back at an impromptu show at the Improv in LA. Some guy in the audience asked how he liked his Carrera GT. Before he answered, he asked the guy what he had. The guy answered "A Boxster." I don't know why, but I chose to remember THAT rather than remember whether or not Jerry liked his CGT.

Man, the two of them together - too funny. My brand of dry humor come-backs. This season there appears to be less on the cars and more on the conversation.
