Lisa Kudrow biography
Date of Birth: July 30, 1963
"Life is a lot easier when you're dumb," says this graduate of Vassar College. After finishing her degree in biology, Lisa Kudrow planned on doing research with her father, a world-renowned headache
specialist. But an audition for the famed Los Angeles improvisational group, The Groundlings, led to her becoming a regular member of the troupe.
Nominated for an Emmy, Golden Globe, SAG and American Comedy Awards for her work in Friends and Mad About You, Lisa says, "People are watching really carefully. But I think I'm funny."
More recently, Lisa has been concentrating on her film work, especially since Friends ended in 2004. Since then, she's appeared in major motion pictures such as Bandslam (2009), Easy A (2010), Neighbors (2014), the Emily Blunt drama The Girl on the Train (2016), and the Anna Kendrick comedy Table 19 (2017).
She has also created her own TV series for Showtime Network, Web Therapy, in which she also stars as a therapist who helps people via internet sessions. The show has had guest stars such as her former Friends co-stars Matt LeBlanc, David Schwimmer and Courteney Cox, but also a bevy of A-List stars such as Meryl Streep and Steve Carell.
