Matthew Perry, who famously played Chandler Bing on Friends, has tragically passed away at the age of 54. The actor, and character, have brought us countless laughs over the years. To honor Matthew Perry, I’ve put together a list of his most memorable moments as Chandler Bing.
In addition to Friends, Perry also starred in TV shows Mr. Sunshine, Go On, and The Odd Couple, among others. He also starred in movies such as Fools Rush In, Almost Heroes, The Whole Nine Yards, and 17 Again. Instead of focusing on the sad, I’ll be remembering all the laughs. If you’d like to read more on the details behind his passing you can find those details here.
Matthew Perry’s Best Moments As Chandler Bing
Chandler Bing was always a character I could relate to. While every character on the show is funny (it’s a sitcom, aren’t they all supposed to be?), Chandler was “the funny one.” I know what you’re thinking, “Umm I actually laughed more at Joey. Isn’t he the funny one?” Yes. Again, every character is funny. We laugh at and with them all. However, Joey was unintentionally funny. Chandler was legitimately funny. He wanted to be a comedy writer, instead he ended up…doing whatever it was he did.
Where Joey’s priority seemed to be womanizing, Ross had his educational pursuits, and Chandler had his mission to be funny. He wanted to make everyone laugh. That was his thing. Not only was Chandler funny, but he often found himself in humorous situations. That brought out the best of his flaws and put them on full display.
Chandler would have hilarious moments in his apartment with Joey. Likewise, there were funny moments in the apartment he shared with Monica. However, most of my favorite Chandler Bing moments come from his experiences at work. Sure, we never got a full grasp on what he did at work. However, while he was there hilarity often ensued. Whether it’s because the behavior of a co-worker, not paying attention, or some sort of faux pas that only dug a deeper hole, Chandler at work never disappointed.
