Biography:

On radio from age 4, Florence found TV comedy to be her medium, drawing laughs alone with her short stature, feisty demeanor and unmistakable rasp. In 1985, she replaced Selma Diamond as the deadpan bailiff on the hit sitcom "Night Court." Diamond, who also had a crackling nasal voice that induced chuckles, had died of lung cancer. Ironically, Florence, also a heavy smoker, died less than a year later of the same disease, after only season on the show.
