As part of his promotional run for his web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, Jerry Seinfeld took to Facebook on Wednesday afternoon to answer questions from fans.

And, in one of the first exchanges of the session, he put to rest any notion that he might be thinking of working on something other than CCC, at least not a post-Seinfeld return to half-hour television:

“Would you ever consider doing another sitcom? Either writing or acting?” a fan asked. The response was one word long: “No.”

Other participants in the Q&A expressed both surprise and resignation about his response, with the original questioner responding that “if you do it right the first time you don’t need a second try.”

Seinfeld — whose eponymous TV show first aired 25 years ago this summer — also answered questions about which comedians he hopes to get on the show but hasn’t yet (nobody, because everyone says yes), his favorite cars and sneakers, as well as another matter that got a blanket negative from the comedian: whether it’s ever acceptable to tuck in a polo shirt.
