HONOLULU (AP) — President Barack Obama will be Jerry Seinfeld’s first guest when the seventh season of his online talk show, “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” opens Dec. 30.

The show features the New York comedian picking up fellow comics in classic cars and taking them out for coffee and conversation.

Obama and Seinfeld spoke at the White House earlier this month. The White House says they took turns circling the South Lawn in a 1963 Corvette Stingray split window coupe before chatting over coffee in a basement dining room. They spoke about what makes White House life both remarkable and routine.

The appearance is another example of Obama trying to appeal to new audiences.

The interview is scheduled to be released Dec. 30 on Crackle, the Sony Pictures’ online network, and at Comediansincarsgettingcoffee.com.
