A: Well, it was Kelsey Grammer who played Frasier Crane, but he certainly had a lot of comedic help from regulars John Mahoney, Jane Leeves, Peri Gilpin and David Hyde Pierce, as well as an array of guest stars.
But Pierce has hardly disappeared since the series ended in 2004. While there have been a few screen appearances, including in the film "The Perfect Host," he has been especially active in theater.
In 2007, he won a Tony Award for best actor in a musical for his work in "Curtains." In 2010, he received the Tonys' Isabelle Stevenson Award. Pierce has been active and outspoken about the battle against Alzheimer's disease, which his father had.
In 2012, Pierce directed the Williamstown Theatre Festival's production of "The Importance of Being Earnest."
He has been appearing in Christopher Durang's play "Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike," and received a best actor in a play Tony nomination for it. (Pierce did not win, but the production picked up the Tony for best play.)
Q: I would like to know why episodes of "Taxi" aren't in rerun. Thank you in advance for snooping into this.
A: These days, old shows can be spread across broadcast, cable, online services, DVD, Blu-ray and digital downloads. CBS.com has a bunch of episodes of "Taxi," including its premiere, available for online viewing.
Look at the list of "TV classics" in the site's "Shows" section.
All five seasons are also on DVD. ME-TV (Memorable Entertainment TV), a nostalgia channel, added the series to its Tuesday-night lineup, too.
