Taylor Negron has been part of the UnCabaret family since its days at Highways, we’re always thrilled when he returns for a visit.
Most people know Taylor from his now-infamous pizza delivery scene in Fast Times at Ridgemont High or his very memorable appearances in The Last Boy Scout, Curb Your Enthusiasm and Seinfeld. He also notably appeared in UnCabaret’s Comedy Central Special and starred in his own HBO One Night Stand.
In 2008 he wrote The Unberable Lightness of Being Taylor Negron – A Fusion of Story and Song, which was directed by David Schweitzer and co-starred singer/songwriter Logan Heftel (pictured above). The show debuted to critical acclaim in the Green Room at the Edinburgh Comedy Festival and ran in the 2009 Best of New York Solo Festival. The collaboration with Logan continues to this day and the two often appear together at UnCabaret, charming audiences with their very funny banter and songs. These guys got chemistry, I tell ya!
Taylor’s comedy essays have been published in the anthology Dirty Laundry (Phoenix Books) and Love West Hollywood: Reflections of Los Angeles (Alyson Books). He is also a delightful visual artist and an excellent friend on Facebook.
You can see Taylor perform in Season 1 Episode 2 of UnCabaret on Amazon.
