Her Father, Harry Anderson

American entertainer Harry Laverne Anderson (1952-2018) played many different roles. He entertained audiences as a magician, tickled their funny bones as a comedian and served court as a sitcom actor.

Born in Newport, Rhode Island in 1952, Anderson’s early life is somewhat unknown but his interest in magic developed early on. As a teen he played at local clubs and events. At Fullerton College in California, Anderson continued to study magic before being lured into a full time entertainment career.

Anderson turned pro in the early 1980s. He landed a role as fast-talking conman Harry “The Hat” Gittes on the sitcom “Cheers”. From this exposure came roles in Hollywood including as Judge Harry Stone on NBC’s “Night Court” (1984-1992).

Judge Harry Stone, an amusing yet quirky character, captured Anderson’s comedic timing and natural charisma. The show, set in a chaotic Manhattan night court, ran for nine seasons. Anderson won three Emmy nominations consecutively. His portrayal of Judge Stone became television history.

Beyond “Night Court,” Anderson showed his versatility. In the 1990 miniseries adaptation of Stephen King’s horror classic “It”, he played wisecracking adult Richie Tozier. He appeared from 1993 to 1997 on the CBS sitcom Dave’s World based on the life and columns of humorist Dave Barry. Anderson kept up his magic – performing in shows like “Harry Anderson’s Sideshow” outside of scripted roles.

No details of his finances are public but Harry Anderson certainly amassed a substantial net worth during his career. But he clearly was passionate about more than money. Still involved in magic, he wrote a book about magic scams with a friend titled “Games You Can’t Lose: A Guide for Suckers.”

Personal life was relatively quiet for Anderson. He married twice – to Leslie Pollack and later to Elizabeth Morgan. His two children were Eva Fay Anderson and Dashiell Anderson. Once he retired from acting in the late 1990s, Anderson returned to Asheville North Carolina for more magic and artistic pursuits.

Harry Anderson died in 2018 at age 65. He left us a legacy of laughter and wonder. He was a magician with sleight of hand, an actor with warmth and humor about iconic characters and a man who made lives happy on and off screen.
