So, I’ve been ill all weekend…on the sofa binge watching TV…as you do and the only thing that got me through without losing my mind was finding out that the Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars getting coffee is on Netflix in the UK!
I was over the moon, because Seinfeld is and always been my favourite TV show…EVER!
I’m also a HUGE stand up fan and Jerry is one of my heroes…
I know this show has been on for a few years, but it has never been shown over here and every time I have tried to watch it online I get the “sorry you are not in the correct area!” or is will be a pirated copy on YouTube where the screen is tiny and pixelated.
I am sure there is a way to have seen it, but I’m not that great with tech…but anyway, I digress.
I watched 35 episodes this weekend…(as I said I was ill) and I fell in love with this show.
I’m not a car guy, but I love comedy.
Those of you who do not know what it is, it is basically a regular talk show that is not in a studio. Jerry picks and shows off a fancy car and then he picks up another comedian and they drive to a coffee shop and have a chat and make each other laugh.
As I was watching this I tweeted a silly joke:
“I after binge watching so many comedians in cars getting coffee I kinda wanna make my own YouTube show now…comic creators in cars getting stroppy…”
Within a couple of house a couple of house 24 people “liked” the tweet and I started getting a messages saying “I’d watch that” and I started thinking…I could do a my own show…
Not the same (for copyright reasons!;)), obviously, plus I have no budget, so no fancy cars…no crew, so no location shooting…or coffee shops.
But, what I am thinking is, just me and a comic creator in my car, driving around and me asking them questions about making comics…their processes, what they are reading and stuff like that.
Because whenever I do a comic con, people ALWAYS come up to me and ask how I make comics and I love talking about the process and try and encourage everyone I meet….but that’s just might opinion and my way…there are as many different ways to make comics as there are creators.
Also, I am not just saying I would try and get comic “pros” on (because I don’t actually know any), but I am thinking I can do it with small press and indie creators…because they are making their way in the comic world and it might be interesting…plus, if I am able to get any “pros” on, I’m not just talking about writers and artists, but I’d like to get colourists and editors on too…because there are other sides to making a comic that people don’t realise.
So, the reason for this thread is really to ask, if I was to put my money where my big fat mouth is…would a Youtube style show be on any interest to you lot…
