Larroquette is probably best known for his role as Dan Fielding on Night Court. The role won him Emmy Awards in 1985, 1986, 1987 and 1988. In 1989, he asked not to be considered for an Emmy Award. His four consecutive wins were, at the time, a record.

In 1998, he guest-starred on three episodes of the legal drama The Practice. His portrayal of Joey Heric, a wealthy, wisecracking, narcissistic psychopath with a habit of stabbing his gay lovers to death, won him his fifth Emmy Award. He reprised the role for one episode in 2002, for which he was once again Emmy Award–nominated. He also appeared in an episode of The West Wing as Lionel Tribbey, White House Counsel.

In 2019, Larroquette was a regular in Blood and Treasure. He also had a recurring role in The Good Fight in 2020. He is currently preparing to reprise the role of Dan Fielding in the reboot of Night Court.
