Comedians Jerry Seinfeld and Patton Oswalt had some fun at Keith Olbermann’s expense in Seinfeld’s web series “Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee.” In the latest episode, Seinfeld and Oswalt discussed Olbermann’s leap from firebrand political commentary to his role as a late-night sports wrap-up show anchor.

OSWALT: Imagine driving a car 90 mph, then just throwing it in reverse to see what happens. That’s what he’s doing.
