You might recognise him from just about every American TV series ever made (as well as a few films). However, you're missing out unless you watch his podcasts. He's also a very funny writer. Thank God for Taylor Negron. He's not too proud of this

He's kind of funny, but the cuecard reading is of SNL proportions.

Not that obscure... whenever my wife or I mention him, that's what we say. :-)

Funny fellow.

Oh good, thank god it's not just me.

I like him indeed. Except in that show my nine year old daughter watches. We both crack each other up occasionally by saying in a really bad Canadian version of a Hispanic accent:

I don't hate it!

I used to have a friend who was just like this guy. He is sort of charming but always screwing up his personal life even though he is surrounded by cute girls. He was some sort of scientist studying dragons or something. It was fun to spend some time, maybe about half an hour, with him and his pals. Then it started to feel like the same things were happening over and over. Sometimes there would be several of these episodes in one day. This has now been going on for several seasons over many years. It was like they had moved in and started camping in my living room where my tv used to be.

Finally, I noticed that they never paid any attention to me. It was always all about their problems , over and over. Plus, the problems were stupid. I would shout "Just talk to each other" but they would ignore my advice.

I have gradually realized that these people really aren't my friends.

He used to do standup at uncabaret sometimes. I always was happy when I saw him on the lineup because he's so solid. I always knew he was going to say SOMETHING funny or insightful onstage. With most people, you can only hope.

What's a little boy like you doing with big boy smut like this?

He was fun in The Aristocrats.

Poolio, that's the first thing I thought of too.

I first saw him years ago on some stand-up show, and it's always a delight to see him popping up in random places.

We saw him doing stand-up live in Atlanta a few years back and he was brilliant. We're still laughing at some of his jokes. Thanks for posting this.

Hey, I'm happy my Taylor Negron post is receiving love from the MeFi masses. I expected it to sink into obscurity.

How do you get a sweet little 80-year-old lady to say Fuck?



Get another sweet little 80-year-old lady to yell *BINGO*!


See, that's funny.

He's a strikingly beautiful funny guy too (which helps, just occasionally!).

YMMV, of course.

How many actors can say they've worked with Sean Penn, John Cusack, AND the Olsen Twins?

He's not too proud of this

Why not? Cuz the video ends before the punchline???

Yeah, I thought he killed in The Aristocrats. Any reason why he's not proud of it? Has he said anything to that effect? That would surprise me. (After browsing through his website, I see he doesn't list the appearance in the "Credits" section. Curious.)
