On a recent episode of Alan Carr‘s talk show, “Chatty Man,” actor Matthew Perry sat down for a lively and entertaining interview. The episode kicked off the new series with a bang, as Perry and Carr discussed various topics and shared some hilarious anecdotes.

Perry is currently starring in the play “The End of Longing,” which Carr had the pleasure of seeing the night before the interview. Carr praised the play, describing it as brilliant and appealing to the “Friends” generation. The play revolves around four lost souls in their 30s and 40s, searching for love and romance.

During the interview, Carr humorously pointed out that Perry wasn’t allowed to use as many swear words on “Friends” as he does in the play. Perry revealed that there are a whopping 132 f-words in the play, which prompted Carr to ask about his favorite swear word. Perry jokingly responded with a candid “ah,” causing laughter from the audience.

The conversation took a hilarious turn when Perry shared a personal anecdote about a mishap involving watching a pornographic film. He explained how he accidentally blasted the sound of the film in his living room while trying to turn it off, causing an embarrassing situation. This led to jokes about his character’s alcoholism in the play, which Perry clarified is not autobiographical but still touches on his well-documented real-life struggles with alcohol.

Naturally, the conversation turned to the iconic TV show “Friends,” as Carr asked Perry about the show’s popularity. Perry revealed that when the cast came to London to shoot two episodes, they were met with immense excitement from fans. The show’s constant presence on TV in the UK kept the excitement alive, although Perry jokingly noted that fans often ask why he looks older now.

Carr also brought up the recent unofficial “Friends” reunion on American TV, which Perry missed due to his play commitments. While Perry expressed disappointment at not being able to reunite with the cast, Carr made up for it by staging a mini-reunion on his show. Impersonators of Jennifer Aniston, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, David Schwimmer, and Courtney Cox appeared, lightening the mood and adding to the celebratory atmosphere.

The interview ended with Carr jokingly mentioning that Perry’s character Chandler Bing might be a father now, referring to a fan theory circulating online. Perry laughed it off and wished his former co-star Matt LeBlanc luck in his new role as the host of “Top Gear.”

Despite missing out on the official “Friends” reunion, Perry thoroughly enjoyed his time on “Alan Carr: Chatty Man.” The interview was filled with laughter, entertaining anecdotes, and a glimpse into Perry’s life onstage and off. Fans of the actor and the talk show alike were surely left wanting more after this lively segment.
