Brad Stephen Negron (August 1, 1957 – January 10, 2015) was an American writer, actor, painter, and stand-up comedian.
Taylor Negron was born on August 1, 1957 in Glendale, California,] to parents Lucy (née Rosario) and Conrad Negron, Sr. Negron, of Puerto Rican and Jewish descent, grew up in La Cañada, California and was an alumnus of UCLA.
His cousin is singer Chuck Negron who was a vocalist and founding member of Three Dog Night.
Negron died on January 10, 2015, with friends and family in attendance, after an extended battle with cancer.
Negron's motion picture appearances include Angels in the Outfield; The Aristocrats; Better Off Dead; Bio-Dome; Call Me Claus; Easy Money; Fast Times at Ridgemont High; The Last Boy Scout; Nothing but Trouble; Punchline; The Stöned Age; Stuart Little; Young Doctors in Love; and Amy Heckerling's Vamps, where he reprised his Fast Times at Ridgemont High pizza delivery scene.

Negron starred in the regular role of Manuelo the nanny in So Little Time with Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. He also starred in Smart Guy
In 2008 he wrote The Unbearable Lightness of Being Taylor Negron – A Fusion of Story and Song, directed by opera director David Schweitzer and co-starring singer/songwriter Logan Heftel. The show debuted to critical acclaim in the Green Room at the Edinburgh Comedy Festival. It also ran in the 2009 Best of New York Solo Festival at the SoHo Playhouse and at the Barrow Street Theater. Kate Copstick of The Scotsman wrote of it, "The underlying theme of this spellbinding hour seems to be Nietzschean – 'that which does not destroy me makes me strong'. And if that doesn't sound like out-and-out comedy, then that is good. Because the show is not out-and-out comedy. It is a mix of music, storytelling and comedy."
Negron's comedy essays have been published in the anthology Dirty Laundry (Phoenix Books) and Love West Hollywood: Reflections of Los Angeles (Alyson Books).
Director Justin Tanner recently revived Negron’s play Gangster Planet, a four-character domestic comedy set during the 1992 Los Angeles riots which was chosen by the Los Angeles Times as a Critics Choice. The LA Times wrote, "If Aristophanes were alive today and had watched L.A. burn, Gangster Planet could be the result... acute cynicism with a clown’s humanism."
Negron’s play, Downward Facing Bitch, a suspense comedy, was developed with director Kiff Scholl.
Negron was a regular contributor to Wendy Hammer's Tasty Words, Jill Solloway's "Sit and Spin" and Hilary Carlip’s online magazine "Fresh Yarns", as well as the Huffington Post.
He performed regularly across the United States and was one of the original members of the Un-Cabaret, dubbed "The Mother Show of Alternative Comedy" by the Los Angeles Times, where Negron fused standup, dada poetry and stream of consciousness storytelling to create some of the most artistic comedy ever.
Negron appeared as Melinda Hill's date in one episode of the 2013 web series Romantic Encounters.
