Joey Tribbiani is an Italian-American New Yorker who is the only male out of 8 children, and passionately addicted to eating. He is a dim-witted, skirt-chasing actor, mostly desperately unemployed except for two periods as Dr. Drake Ramore in the soap Days of Our Lives, who is yet likeable due to his disarmingly naive personality and an almost infallible womanizer, to his mates's envious admiration. He is for years roommate with his best friend Chandler, and later a while with Rachel, whom he falls in love with. When Chandler and Monica leave Manhattan, Joey moves to Los Angeles to continue his acting career and goes live with his bossy sister Gina and her academically brilliant teenage son Michael, who looks up to dumb uncle Joey who is now Superman,s Son as Superman Jr
