  • Breakout Character: His characters (especially Dan Fielding and Joey Heric) tend to stand out in spite of being a part of an ensemble cast. As such, he has received numerous accolades and awards for his roles. (In fact, he dominated the Nighttime Emmys in the "Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series" category to the point he started removing himself from consideration.)
  • Old Shame: How he feels about Payne, a short-lived American version of Fawlty Towers.
  • What Could Have Been: There were talks for his popular Night Court character Dan Fielding to receive his own spinoff, but Larroquette declined.
