Emmy Award-winning actress Lisa Kudrow first made audiences laugh with her recurring role as a ditzy waitress named Ursula on Mad About You. Two years later, she landed her star-making part as an airheaded folksinger (who just happened to be Ursula's twin sister) on Friends. During the sitcom's 10-year run, Kudrow branched out into movies and smartly took on darker roles in a number of edgy independent films, such as The Opposite of Sex and Clockwatchers, as well as supporting comic turns in Hollywood blockbusters like Analyze This. Although Friends ended in 2004, Kudrow returned to the small screen the following year in the critically acclaimed HBO series The Comeback, playing a washed-out actress desperate for another shot at success in Hollywood. While it only lasted a season, The Comeback has since earned a cult following and was named one of the ten best television shows of the decade by Entertainment Weekly.
Kudrow currently stars as Fiona Wallice in an improvisational online (and later, television) series called Web Therapy. The series has featured guest stars such as Meryl Streep, Jane Lynch and Alan Cumming, amongst others. Kudrow is also the executive producer of TLC's 's genealogy series Who Do You Think You Are?
Kudrow's cult hit The Comeback (HBO) will return to television this fall.
