It’s pretty meta to be an actor playing an actor on a TV series, but Matt Le Blanc managed to do a great job in bringing the beloved character of Joey Tribbiani to our screens.

The lovable ladies man coined perhaps the most famous phrase from Friends with his tried-and-tested pick-up line of “How you doin’?” Seriously, there are still memes of it being created to this day, even though the final season aired in 2004!

Of course, Joey did have other interests besides women and acting. He was also very into his food.. And while he was often seen as the least intelligent member of the gang, he still managed to pull of plenty of jokes that weren’t just about him being clueless. Although they featured a lot too.

But if you loved Joey as much as us then you will definitely enjoy this guide to all the best Joey Tribbiani funny lines from the series. Grab a sandwich and start reading!
