Louie De Palma is a cantankerous, acerbic taxi dispatcher in New York City. He tries to maintain order over a collection of varied and strange characters who drive for him. As he bullies and insults them from the safety of his "cage," they form a special bond among themselves, becoming friends and supporting each other through the inevitable trials and tribulations of life.Written by

In an episode during the first season, Louie De Palma (Danny DeVito) plays violin in one scene. A photo taken during rehearsals of that episode ran in a tabloid magazine along with a story describing how DeVito is "giving up" acting to play violin. DeVito's relatives called him out of concern believing the story was true. See more »
Taxi was a creative show that will be remembered for years to come. Each episode featured huge laughs that make your sides hurt, due in no small part to Christopher Lloyd. My favorite episode is the one where Jim takes the test to be a driver. The cast had a unique chemistry that you don't see on shows these days. Taxi isn't television, it's TELEVISION.
