Matt LeBlanc as Joey Tribbiani in Joey

fr:Joey Tribbiani Joseph Francis Tribbiani, aka Joey Tribbiani is the fictional character played by Matt LeBlanc in the popular comedy TV series Friends and later in the Friends spin-off Joey.

In the show, the character has a career in acting. He also pursues modeling at one point. His character is known for his simple-mindedness, his trouble with understanding negative criticism of his acting, his love of food (particularly sandwiches), and his success with women, which generated the popular catchphrase "How you doin'?".

Joey's most famous acting role was as Dr. Drake Ramoray on the serial drama Days of our Lives. However, when Joey claimed in an interview that he wrote many of his own lines, the writers of the show became annoyed and killed him off. The character later returned after a bizarre plot line resurrected him. Joey's agent was Estelle Leonard.

Joey famously shared an apartment with his best friend Chandler Bing. The two formed perhaps one of the most likeable and enduring television friendships in sitcom history. Their adventures included losing Ross' baby son on a bus, building an entertainment unit which was so big it covered both of their bedroom doors, buying a chick and a duck (affectionately named 'The Chick and The Duck'), replacing their dining table with a foosball table and spending hours watching Baywatch. In the final episode the two destroyed the foosball table before Chandler moved to the New York suburbs; however, despite the loss of Chandler and Joey's apartment, and the fact that they no longer live in the same apartment block, Chandler and Monica made it clear that their new home would have a specially designated 'Joey room'.

When Chandler moved out to pursue a relationship with Monica, Joey was joined by Janine (Elle MacPherson) and later Rachel, who he formed a stronger bond with, and eventually fell in love with; however, nothing came of it and the two returned to being just good friends.

Joey is perhaps the most loyal of the friends. In one episode, when Joey believed Phoebe to be pregnant, he proposed marriage, claiming the world is too scary for a single mother alone. However, when it emerged that it was in fact Rachel who was pregnant, Joey proposed to Rachel, making the exact same speech and demanding the ring back from Phoebe. He also offered to stand up for Ross and Chandler when they were being bullied at Central Perk, and he allowed Monica to hire and fire him so as to prove to her employees that she was not a pushover.

Joey was ordained over the Internet and officiated at Chandler's wedding to Monica and Phoebe's wedding to Mike Hannigan.

After the 2003/2004 final season of Friends, Joey Tribbiani became the main character of Joey, a spin-off TV series.
