Garry Shandling: 10 Best TV Moments

From his first 'Tonight Show' appearance to talking about his funeral with Jerry Seinfeld

'Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee' (2016)

On a January 2016 episode of the Crackle show Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, Shandling stopped by a diner with longtime friend Jerry Seinfeld. The ominously titled episode — "It's Great That Garry Shandling Is Still Alive" — sees the pair joking about everything from Matthew McConaughey to the Dalai Lama, but the episode finds itself coming back to the topic of death throughout.
