Taxi was a hilarious sitcom that starred Tony Danza, Danny DeVito, Christopher Lloyd, and others! It followed the lives of several taxi drivers in New York City and their horrible dispatcher. Most of the taxi drivers had other aspirations in life, and the theme of the show was often those dreams being too far away. While the show was very humorous, it also tackled some tough subjects such as drug addiction and grief.
The show ran from 1978 to 1983 on NBC. During the show’s run, it won 18 Emmy Awards! Do you remember watching the show? Which character was your favorite? Let’s take a look at the actors of Taxi and find out what they’ve been up to since the ’80s.
