Out of the blue, in 1984, the absurdist comedy television show Night Court premiered. I was an immediate fan. It ran from 1984 to 1992.
As a semi-professional magician (in my youth), I really appreciated the casting of comic magician Harry Anderson as Judge Harold T. Stone. I met him at a friend’s funeral. He is a true gentleman – and very tall. And I grew to love John Larroquette as that horn-dog D. A. Dan Fielding. He, too is tall. And won FOUR Emmys in the role!
It’s coincidental I was preparing a post about Night Court when I found out the show’s creator and chief writer, Reinhold Weege, passed away December 1 at age 62.
