Grew up… in a sexually confusing household with his mother, an erotic novelist, and his father, a cross-dressing Las Vegas entertainer. No wonder he has trouble with women.
Living… in Manhattan with his best friend Joey (and sometimes with a duck and a chick), across the hall from their friends Monica and Rachel. Chandler and Joey usually get on well as roommates, but sometimes Joey can take things overboard, like with his massive entertainment unit that blocked Chandler’s access to his bedroom.
Profession… working in statistical analysis and data reconfiguration for a multi-national corporation. It started as a temp job and somehow Chandler never got around to leaving. Even after many years, Chandler’s friends aren’t sure what he does, and he isn’t either. Though it definitely has something to do with WENUS: Weekly Estimated Net Usage System. Yes, it’s as exciting as it sounds.
Interests… using catchphrases (“Could that BE any more...” or “Oh, MY God”). Chandler also occasionally plays basketball and racquetball with Joey and Ross, even though he doesn’t really like exercise.
Relationship Status… hopelessly single, for the most part. His relationships tend to skew towards the “Is he really going out with her?” type. (Exhibit A: the screeching Janice.) Chandler can be both charmingly awkward and awkward-awkward, but too often he only treats ladies to the latter.
Challenge… finding something that’s his that he can be proud of. Chandler’s generally embarrassed by his parents, his job, and his relationship status. His sense of humor helps him cope with all of these problems, but it won’t fix them. At some point he’s going to have to take something, or someone, seriously.
Personality… funny, affable, sarcastic and a bit insecure. Chandler can always be counted on for a zinger or quip. As he put it, “I make jokes when I’m uncomfortable… I say more dumb things before 9 a.m. than most people say all day.” Things are always a little more entertaining when Chandler is around.
