Joseph Francis "Joey" Tribbiani, Jr. is a fictional character from the NBC sitcoms Friends and its spin-off Joey, portrayed by Matt LeBlanc. Joey comes from an Italian American family of eight children. His father Joseph Tribbiani, Sr., after whom Joey is named, is a pipefitter and his mother's name is Gloria. Joey has seven sisters: Mary Therese, Mary Angela, Dina, Gina, Tina, Veronica, and Cookie. Joey is from, and was presumably born in Queens, New York. As a child, he was extremely accident prone. He also had an imaginary friend, Maurice, who was a space cowboy. Joey is portrayed as promiscuous and dim-witted, but very loyal and protective of his friends. As a struggling actor, he is constantly looking for work. He was ordained as a minister in "The One with the Truth About London", and officiated at both Monica and Chandler and Phoebe and Mike's weddings. It is revealed in The One After "I Do" that Joey has size seven feet, which he is secretive and defensive about. He also has a soft toy penguin named Hugsy, whom he is very fond of and does not like to share. He also doesn't like sharing food and has difficulty with simple mathematics. In sports, Joey likes the Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Yankees, and briefly the New York Mets in baseball, Los Angeles Clippers and New York Knicks in basketball, New York Giants and New York Jets in football, and the Detroit Red Wings and New York Rangers in ice hockey.

Matt LeBlanc will forever be associated with Joey Tribbiani, the sandwich-loving actor he played for 10 seasons on Friends . While that might bother some stars, LeBlanc appreciates the enduring fan fervor. "I'll always be known for Friends —so will Matthew [ Perry ], David [ Schwimmer ], Courteney [ Cox ]," he tells Boston Common of the beloved show, which also starred Jennifer Aniston and Lisa Kudrow . "It's OK with me. I can only speak for myself, but I'm very proud of it. I wouldn't do anything differently."
