The John Larroquette Show


The John Larroquette Show Cast

Series Description

The John Larroquette Show was a 30 minute comedy series on NBC about a recovering alcoholic (John Hemingway) who was the night manager at a low-life bus station in St. Louis, Missouri. The place was the night-time hang out or bedroom for the members of "low society" like street hookers, homeless people, drug addicts, etc. John could identify with those people as he had recently been a member of their ranks. The problem for John was that it was often difficult to stay sober within such a crowd!

Trivia

    

There were six episodes that were produced but did not originally air after the John Larroquette Show was canceled. Their titles were, "Napping to Success", "Cheeses H. Taste", "When Yussel Learned to Yodel", "Humble Pi", "Friends", and "Pandora's Box".

From our description above, you might find it hard to believe that the John Larroquette Show was really funny. Actually, that was the brilliance of the show. It was a great example of "Dark Humor". Finding things that are comical in situations that would normally be sad or disgusting. Audiences seemed to like it for the first three seasons but there was a very vocal minority of viewers and advertisers who felt that the humor was a bit too dark. So NBC ordered the writers to tame things down for the fourth season and the show died. Unfortunately, it rarely pays to be innovative in the TV business!
