Shandling appeared on Jerry Seinfeld’s “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” in an episode titled “It’s Great That Garry Shandling Is Still Alive.”
“So it turns out I had a hyper parathyroid gland that was undiagnosed because the symptoms mirror the exact same symptoms an older Jewish man would have,” Shandling says, “which is lethargic, you get puffy, you get heavy, you think you kind of want a divorce but you’re not married.”
They talk and joke about getting older, look back on what it was like starting out, their careers doing sitcoms in the 90s, death, and Robin Williams’ suicide. Shandling makes a joke about his own suicide note.
It’s funny, sad, and poignant. Shandling and Seinfeld seem to be having a good time.
