Joey Tribbiani was not the great visionary of his time or a great thinker but man he can eat.
Joey was presumably born in 1968 as he talks about having turned 13 in 1981. He comes from an Italian American family of eight children. His father Joseph Tribbiani, Sr. (Robert Costanzo), is a pipefitter and his mother’s name is Gloria (Brenda Vaccaro). Joey has seven sisters: Mary Therese (Christina Ricci), Mary Angela (Holly Gagnier, with whom Chandler had sex at Joey’s birthday party), Dina (Marla Sokoloff), Gina (Drea de Matteo), Tina, Veronica, and Cookie (Alex Meneses). Joey is from Queens, New York. As a child, he was extremely accident prone. He also had an imaginary friend, Maurice, who was a space cowboy.
