Jill Alexander on HBO's Silicon Valley

Jill Alexander is your new best friend. You’re going to love watching disaster movies with her.

Right now this very minute she plays “Patrice” in Mike Judge’s acclaimed HBO series Silicon Valley. She also pops up on a regular basis in sketches on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Other recent notable appearances include The Millers, Nickelodeon’s See Dad Run, and ABC Family’s Melissa and Joey.

Jill is an accomplished improviser, most notably as a member of IOWest’s long-running mainstage show Trophy Wife, named by New York Magazine as the “improv team to watch!” She is also an alumna of The Groundlings Sunday Company.

An Air Force brat, Jill grew up all over this great nation and then attended Northwestern University where she studied acting.

Jill lives in Silver Lake with her husband, David Ross, who refuses to put her in any of his movies. They have a 2-year old daughter who is THE MOST SPECIAL GIRL IN THE WHOLE GREAT BIG ENTIRE WORLD. Jill had laser-eye surgery, so now she has lasers in her eyes {pew-pew}.
