Kate Walsh Revisits Comedic Roots With ‘Bad Judge’

Although Kate Walsh may have carved out a solid dramatic career thanks to her work on TV series Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice, and most recently Fargo, the actress also has a comedic background. Those seeds were planted years ago during her days at Chicago’s Piven Theatre Workshop.

“I’ve always kind of lived in both worlds,” said Walsh, whose new show Bad Judge premieres on NBC tomorrow night at 9 pm et/pt. “I always did comedy and drama (but) then Grey’s Anatomy came along and hit and that’s what I became known for.”

With Bad Judge, Walsh stars as Rebecca Wright, a judge who lays down the law in her courtroom but finds her life outside the legal system a bit chaotic for her own good. Carousing, boozing, and not plain giving a darn does have its appeal, and viewers can expect Wright to partake in all sorts of mayhem.

In our video below, Kate Walsh talks about her improv days in Chicago, where she met Bad Judge executive producer (and Anchorman filmmaker) Adam McKay and a host of talented performers.
