“Friends” Star Dead At Age 54

I saw Matthew Perry was trending tonight on Twitter and I had a very bad feeling.

Sadly, Matthew Perry has reportedly died at age 54 of an apparent drowning.


The NY Post reports there were no drugs found or foul play suspected:

Matthew Perry has died at the age of 54, TMZ has reported.

The beloved “Friends” star was reportedly discovered dead in the jacuzzi of an L.A.-area home on Saturday afternoon.

Law enforcement sources told TMZ that first-responders rushed to the address with the call first reported as a cardiac arrest.

They added that no drugs found at the scene and no foul play is suspected.

Perry rose to fame playing fan-favorite Chandler for 10 seasons on the immensely popular ’90s Sitcom “Friends.”

He had a long history of drug and alcohol abuse, which he has been candid about since getting sober, opening up about his addictions in a memoir he published last year.

During a publicity tour for the tome last year, the star revealed that he almost died in 2018 due to a gastrointestinal perforation.

On a related note, I’ll never understand the debate about Seinfeld vs. Friends….

To me, that’s not even the question.

Friends may have been a feel good, comfort show, but it wasn’t “funny”.

The real debate is Seinfeld vs. Frasier.

Two brilliantly written masterpieces.

But “Smelly Cat”?

Sorry, I just never found it funny, even in the slightest.

Let me put it in basketball terms….

LeBron isn’t even in the Top 2 conversation.

It’s not LeBron vs. Mike, it’s KOBE vs. Mike.

In other words….

Michael Jordan = Seinfeld

Kobe Bryant = Frasier

LeBron = Friends

RIP Matthew Perry.
