Whatever Happened To The Girl From The Big Comfy Couch?

If you were a kid in the 1990s or 2000s, you likely have fond memories of watching The Big Comfy Couch curled up on your own comfy couch. The imaginative TV show is a childhood classic and ran for seven seasons from 1992 to 2007.

Filled with larger-than-life characters and colorful sets, it's no wonder that The Big Comfy Couch was so beloved. Playing no small part in the show's popularity was Alyson Court, who played the main character Loonette the Clown. What happened to Alyson Court after The Big Comfy Couch wrapped? 

The girl from The Big Comfy Couch is all grown up

While kids might not have realized it, Loonette the Clown was played by a grown-up, even though the character of Loonette the Clown seemed quite young. According to her IMDb page, Alyson Court's birthday is November 9, 1973, making her a legal adult when The Big Comfy Couch first aired (albeit one still in her late teens). Court remained looking quite youthful throughout the show's run, so it might come as a shock to audiences to know that Loonette the Clown is now middle-aged

Court got her start as a child star, with her first IMDb credit being a spot on the show The Edison Twins in 1985. Over her decades-long career, Court has been in dozens of shows and movies and has maintained a steady career since The Big Comfy Couch wrapped.
