She is possibly best known for her 1986–92 role of Roz Russell on the popular NBC sitcom Night Court.

Before Night Court, she was a writer and performer on the short-lived Richard Pryor Show.[citation needed]

Cab (1983) and Mask (1985), hosted The Marsha Warfield Show for ten months (March 1990–January 1991) and has made guest appearances on many television shows, including Riptide, Family Ties, Clueless, Cheers, Living Single and Star Dates.
