QUIZ: We’ll Be Impressed If You Can Identify More than 25 Of These Friends Characters



Airing from September 1994 to May 2004, Friends is widely considered to be one of the greatest sitcoms of all time. Following a group of six adults living in Manhattan, it quickly became a cultural touchstone of the 90s, influencing everything from humour to fashion - the most pervasive of which would almost certainly be Jennifer Aniston's signature bob haircut, 'The Rachel'!

Across four seasons and a staggering 236 episodes, Friends attracted high-powered guest stars and its fair share of bizarre, one-off appearances by certain characters. Of course, if you're a true Friends fan then you'll have no trouble telling your Gunthers from your Marcels, but do you remember the name of the characters played by Robin Williams and Billy Crystal? What about the name that Brad Pitt, then Aniston's husband, used when he was on the show?

We've put together the ultimate Friends character name quiz. Think you can beat it? Grab a coffee from Central Perk, sit in a comfy sofa and start clapping, because this is going to be a real challenge!
