Lisa Kudrow first made her name playing Phoebe, the ditzy, New Age member of the titular close-knit pals on NBC's highly successful sitcom Friends.
Kudrow's first leading role on the big screen was as one of the titular heroines (alongside Mira Sorvino) of the 1997 comedy Romy and Michele's High School Reunion; unfortunately, her character was little more than a film version of Phoebe.
Fortunately, Kudrow got to widen her range a little further that same year with a starring role in the independent drama Clockwatchers, portraying a struggling actress alongside the likes of Toni Collette and Parker Posey.

Unlike Sorvino, Lisa Kudrow does have a star personality as a character actress, and the difference between the two actresses’ styles may be the secret of why their partnering works so well: Sorvino mutates into Romy while Michele mutates into Kudrow.
But Kudrow’s resentful manner is also perfect for the dream sequence in which she rattles off the process by which she arrived at the chemical formula for Post-It adhesive as a kiss-off to the bitchy A-Group girls at the reunion.
Kudrow is a prickly comedienne for a prickly cultural moment.

Lisa Kudrow does a great job of convincing everyone that she's a little ditzy, but don't be fooled by her split personality; it's all an acting job -- and a convincing one -- that helped make her an unlikely comedic queen of TV sitcoms.
Lisa Marie Diane Kudrow was born on July 30, 1963, in Encino, California, although she was raised in Tarzana, California, in a very secure and happy household with her parents Lee and Nedra Kudrow.
For this reason and many others, Lisa could not be further from the character she played for 10 years on the hit NBC sitcom Friends, ditzy New Age musician/masseuse/taxi driver, Phoebe Buffay.

Kudrow has enjoyed starring in two television series, appearing as Phoebe in "Friends" and as Ursula, the ditzy, but lovable waitress on NBC's comedy series "Mad About You."

Although she plays a ditz on the NBC sitcom "Friends," Lisa proved to be the smartest of the bunch when she organized the group of six friends into an "all for one and one for all" mentality that followed in a number of salary increases throughout their ten years on the show.
Without a doubt, Lisa’s career is in for a big change with the end of "Friends," but we’re sure that her prior success in both TV and film will make it possible for this laugh queen to carry her own in whatever projects she chooses in the future.
Lisa's newest HBO sitcom "The Comeback" isn't exactly the big hit she was hoping for, but we're sure that those million-dollar royalty checks are certainly helping the pain.

 Fametracker :: The Fame Audit :: Lisa Kudrow
Which is why, we think, Lisa Kudrow is never going to get any more famous than she was during the Friends years -- as a sitcom star, at least: we...don't like her.
Kudrow isn't carrying the whole enterprise on her own, but is part of a large and diverse ensemble cast, which is usually a good thing for the viewer; more than half and hour of Kudrow's tics, or of one of her "funny" voices, have been known to cause psychotic rage and hysterical deafness.
If Lisa Kudrow returned to playing only interesting character roles, as in Happy Endings, it would be better for her: she'd have less to do, more time to spend with her family, and a higher-quality work product.

Having never seen an episode of Friends, I don't have any preconceptions when it comes to Lisa Kudrow, so I can't speak to whatever baggage she might be bringing from that show.
Kudrow's character, Valerie Cherish, is as out of touch as David Brent of The Office, and Valerie is as excruciatingly uncomfortable to watch, but for a different reason.
As Kudrow herself said, "Watching a person lose their dignity used to be uncomfortable, and now it's an expected part of the program that we're becoming comfortable with.
