Lisa Kudrow reveals her favourite episode of Friends and who was really the funniest cast-mate


In a recent Reddit AMA, in which readers of the news and social networking site get to ask anything, Lisa Kudrow, who played Phoebe in Friends revealed who has been her funniest co-star ever:

“See, now, 20 people would be insulted... but because I spent 10 years laughing hysterically at Matthew Perry off-set, it's Matthew Perry. And not laughing at him, laughing with him, sorry!”

On the subject on Friends (which she was, unsurprisingly, asked A LOT about), she was asked the question which was her favourite ever episode of the show. 

The answer? The One With The Halloween Party but not just because it had Chandler dressed up as a bunny rabbit:

The Halloween party that Sean Penn appeared in. For a lot of reasons. Number one was it was the first show we shot after 9/11. And that whole week, while driving in LA, people would pull up, and give me a very sad look, and a quiet "thank you" for making them laugh.

Other than the Halloween episode, the 51-year-old actress also divulged that one her favourite scenes was when Ross (played by David Schwimmer) plays the bagpipes

Oh, the bagpipes! Ross played "Celebrate," the Kool & the Gang song, on bagpipes! And he was SO fully committed!

While she said that she'd love a reunion "[I'd] go for it. A whole season, because to spend that much time with those people again would be heaven!", she also said that it was great that we finished when we did, because I've loved everything I've done since.

Speaking about her most famous character Phoebe Buffay and her talents for singing and playing guitar, she also talk about the Smelly Cat song:

“The writers wrote it, I wrote the tune, and had a little help from Chryssie Hynde. She was amazing.”

And when asked about where Phoebe and Mike (played by the brilliant and hilarious Paul Rudd) would be now, she gave the perfect answer:

“Oh yeah! I honestly think Phoebe would be a super-competitive tiger mom. She doesn't do anything by half-measure.”
