Marsha Warfield – “This is Not Gross, This is Important”
If this album embarrasses you please tell your friends. In the late 1970’s, I (David Drozen) was asked to judge a Comedy competition at The Punchline in San Francisco. The participants were Marsha Warfield, Whoopi Goldberg and one other whose name escapes me. As a result of that competition I signed Marsha to Laff Records and produced this album. Not for the tender eared. Marsha Warfield was born March 5, 1954, in Chicago, Illinois. She is an actress and comedienne. She grew up in Chicago and attended Calumet High School. She is best known for her 1986–1992 role of Roz, the baliff on the popular NBC sitcom Night Court. Roz, a tough, no-nonsense bailiff in Judge Stone’s court, acted primarily as a straight woman to the other bailiff character, Bull (Richard Moll). She also starred in the sitcom Empty Nest as Dr. Maxine Douglas from 1993 to 1995. Before Night Court, she was a writer and performer on the short-lived Richard Pryor Show. Warfield has appeared in feature films such as D.C. Cab (1983) and Mask (1985), hosted The Marsha Warfield Show for ten months (March 1990– January 1991) and has made guest appearances on many television shows, including Riptide, Family Ties, Clueless, Cheers, Living Single and Star Dates. She has also done stand-up comedy including appearances on the Norm Crosby hosted The Comedy Shop television series.
