In case you ever wondered what effects the reinforced concrete used in construction has on the sex life of wild ducks, fret not; actress Joleen Lutz is there to explain. The actress from Chicago, once a regular on the Night Court sitcom that aired from 1984 to 1992 for nine seasons, has been teaching the public about the sex life of animals in collaboration with Los Angeles Zoo.
The Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association started holding the annual adults-only Valentine’s Day-inspired presentation that celebrates romance in the animal kingdom—with Lutz as a host speaker.
In her personal life, according to an interview with Lancer Radio Network, Lutz was always fascinated with helping animals, which probably led to her role in the Los Angeles Zoo.
Even as a child, the Night Court star would find a baby bunny or a bird with a broken wing, and she would nurture it back to health and release it into the urban wildlife. This continued into her adult years, at which point she had too many animals in her home.
At the suggestion of her husband, she went to the Los Angeles Zoo, where she started volunteering. Not soon after, the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association started holding the annual adults-only Valentine’s Day-inspired presentation that celebrates romance in the animal kingdom—with Lutz as a host speaker.
It’s worth noting that the events were charitable, and the proceeds were used to support wildlife preservation and conservation efforts at the zoo and around the world. The heart of the entire evening, apart from a four-course dinner, was a provocative presentation about relationships in the animal kingdom, held by the Night Court star, who is also known for her work as an interpretive naturalist of zoology, offering insights on animal mating, dating, and cohabitating.
Joleen Lutz In Night Court
Actress Joleen Lutz portrayed an upbeat stenographer Lisette Hocheiser, a character known for making a colorful and offbeat commentary on Night Court, a show that, admittedly, had many quirky and hilarious characters.
Lutz portrayed Lisette for two seasons of the show, after which she was featured in several different shows, including Port Charles, Pushing Daisies, and Desperate Housewives.
As the Court’s stenographer, Lisette was known for her naïve, bubbly personality. The audiences of the time were introduced to her character as a replacement for the Court’s previous stenographer, as she’s a friend of the Court’s bailiff Bull Shannon. And despite her somewhat ditzy demeanor, Lisette is depicted as being competent at her job.
Joleen Lutz’s portrayal of Lisette Hocheiser was last seen in the original series finale, and, as of right now, neither Lutz nor her character has any plans of returning to the new Night Court series—the only actor who has reprised his role from the original series is John Larroquette.
In fact, there are many clever nods to the original series in the 2023 version of Night Court, especially to Judge Harry Stone. Those interested in checking out Night Court, it’s on the Peacock streaming service.
Even as a child, the Night Court star would find a baby bunny or a bird with a broken wing, and she would nurture it back to health and release it into the urban wildlife.
However, those interested in seeing Night Court Joleen Lutz’s presentation on animal romance will have to resort to finding those video clips on YouTube. Does anyone else remember the 4:3 aspect ratio?
