Jerry Seinfeld in town filming ‘Comedians in Cars’ – Chicago Tribune

Posted: Tuesday, April 07, 2015

Comedian Jerry Seinfeld is in Chicago on Monday shooting an episode of his delightfully sidewinding Web series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.” 

Rich Moskal, who heads the Chicago Film Office, confirms that Seinfeld is filming the show in town and that his guest is Steve Harvey, who tapes episodes of his daytime talk show, “The Steve Harvey Show,” in Chicago.

In February Seinfeld gave “Extra” a list of the actors and comedians he would be featuring on the show: “Coming up this spring we have Stephen Colbert and Bill Maher, Steve Harvey and Julia Louis-Dreyfus.” (Both Colbert and Louis-Dreyfus cut their teeth on Chicago’s sketch and improv scene.)

Harvey, who also hosts a radio show as well as the game show “Family Feud,” rose to national prominence with the release of the 2000 concert film “The Original Kings of Comedy.” Harvey is also the author of the relationship advice book “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man,” which was adapted into the 2012 studio film “Think Like a Man.”

No word yet which coffee shop or cafe Seinfeld and Harvey picked for their get-together.
