Character Bio

Joey Tribbiani photo
Joey Tribbiani is known for his simple-mindedness, trouble with understanding negative criticism of his acting, and love of food. He particularly loves meatball sub sandwiches. He also loves the "Joey Special", two pizzas.

Joey's simple-mindedness and lack of common sense are described most vividly in episodes "The One With Ross' New Girlfriend" and "The One Where Heckles Dies". In the former episode, Joey recommended Chandler to make suit in his family tailor's shop , and finally it revealed Joey's tailor had taken advantage of him and his family for 16 years. In the latter episode, Joey metioned "When I first moved to this city, I went out a couple of times with this girl, really hot, great kisser, but she had the biggest Adam's apple, it made me nuts" without realizing the common sense, girls don't have Adam's apple. He is something of an idiot savant in matters of romance, which generated his popular catchphrase, and pickup line, "How you doin'?".


Joey, who in the past lived with Chandler for most of the show, has also shared apartments with Phoebe (for short amount of time), Ross and Rachel. Joey has always been able to get the girl he desired, but has never been able to maintain or shown any interest in a long-term relationship. He's had countless number of flings, but no serious relationships. His acting career has been a roller coaster ride, as at one time he was the lead in soap opera, then auditioning for TV commercials and then almost leading in a movie that never happened; his biggest success was starring in Days of Our Lives. At a point in the show, he revealed that he had never felt for anyone, like he did for Rachel, which created a lot of tension between Rachel, Ross and himself, but was only saddened when Rachel rejected him. More confusion occurred, when Rachel thought he had proposed to her, but now has all been cleared up. Currently living by himself, Joey has gotten over Rachel and moved on, but yet to find love.
