Why has Jerry Seinfeld not hosted anyone from the “Blue Collar” comedians bunch on his Netflix show? Does Jerry look down at this group (ex: Jeff Foxworthy, Larry the Cable Guy, Ron White or Bill Engvall)?

  1. I don’t know the answer. But as I have always wondered this myself, and no one else has responded to your question, I will take the liberty of offering my two best guesses.
    One, it’s possible the suits at Crackle/Netflix just didn’t think the regular CICGC audience would like BCCT comedians, or vice versa, that the BCCT audience would not watch CICGC. Both ideas are incorrect IMO, and probably even silly. But Hollywood suits have a lot of silly ideas, and since they ultimately decide what gets on their network/provider and what doesn’t, their silly ideas often govern.
    The other possibility is more mundane – their schedules just didn’t line up. Shows are recorded in a fairly tight window of time, and who gets on is somewhat a function of who is available and in the area during that window. The BCCT guys are all successful, but until recently not so successful that they wanted to stop working, so it is entirely possible that they were just busy working on their own shows or on their own tours when CICGC was being filmed. So maybe CICGC just ran its course and a good time to have them never came up.
    I mean when you think about it, there were other comedians who never made it on the show. Marc Maron was never on it. Gilbert Gottfried wasn’t. Jeanane Garofalo wasn’t. Nor were Amy Poehler, Billy Gardell, Bob Newhart, Adam Sandler, David Spade, Rob Schneider, Dennis Miller, Tom Segura, Drew Carey, Tim Allen, Craig Ferguson, Conan O’Brien, Steven Wright, Eric Andre, Dave Attell, Nick Swardson, Fred Stoller, Ray Romano, Iliza Schlensinger, Brian Posehn, Bob Odenkirk…OK I’ve gone on far too long, but the point is there are a LOT of comedians out there who’d have been funny on CICGC but were never on. Not to mention a few not-very-funny comedians (Amy Schumer, Trevor Noah, John Oliver) who were on the show; at least one funny comedian (Gad Elmaleh) who was on the show but not especially funny; and one non-standup comic actress (Sarah Jessica Parker) who was hilarious. There are any number of possible reasons that these people were on the show or not on the show, and my guess is that a lot of those reasons were pretty mundane: someone just wasn’t available, or someone was available only on one day that also happened to be the only day someone slightly more prestigious was available, so it just ended up not happening. I don’t think there was anything sinister in it; indeed I believe Jerry Seinfeld and Ron White are big fans of each other, and I would imagine Seinfeld would have loved to have him on. And having Larry the Cable Guy riding shotgun through Manhattan in an old Fiat 500 would have been hilarious.
