Friends ran for ten seasons from 1994 to 2004, and Perry quickly became one of the show's most popular stars. He was known for his sarcastic wit and his ability to deliver physical comedy.

After Friends ended, Perry continued to act, appearing in shows like Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip and Mr Sunshine. He also starred in the Broadway play The Odd Couple in 2015.

In recent years, Perry had been open about his struggles with substance abuse and mental health. He checked into rehab for the first time in 1997, and he has since been in and out of treatment several times.

In 2021, he released a memoir called Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing, in which he chronicled his struggles with addiction.
