Hollywood’s Most Ubiquitous Guest Offers Rare View into Glamorous, Star Studded, No Press Party


Carl Tabor is Hollywood’s most ubiquitous guest. He posts videos and photos from the hottest parties, places where press is banned and the invites are as hard to get as nuclear codes.

Last night, Tabor posted from the William Morris Endeavor party at someplace called the Beverly House. It looks like a meeting at Versailles.

In the videos you’ll see lots of familiar faces, from Javier Bardem to Dustin Hoffman to Scott Eastwood.

Who is Carl Tabor? It’s a little unclear. I’ve noticed him around town at various events. He’s a clever guest, that’s obvious. He has exactly one credit on the, for being additional crew on a 1994 movie called “Blankman.”

Tabor himself could be called Blankman. In his impeccable formal clothing, he cuts quite a figure. Celebrities don’t mind posing with him because he seems familiar. He looks vaguely like that actor who left “Grey’s Anatomy” years ago. No one is brave enough to ask him who he is, they just assume he’s Someone.

I will look for more Tabor posts this weekend, from the Oscars themselves to Vanity Fair and Elton John’s parties. This man should write a book, make a documentary, be the subject of a narrative film. He’s our own living Zelig. Mazel tov!
