Jill Alexander is an actor, writer, and improviser.
She recurs as “Patrice” in Mike Judge’s acclaimed HBO series Silicon Valley. She also played Peggy’s secretary “Marsha” in the final season of Mad Men.
Other recent notable TV: Modern Family, New Girl, Angie Tribeca, American Horror Story, Dr. Ken, Aquarius, and Making HIstory. She regularly pops up in sketches on Jimmy Kimmel Live! (#momweed, anyone?)
Jill is an accomplished improviser: she’s a Groundlings Sunday Company alumna and an original member of IOWest’s long-running mainstage show Trophy Wife (named by New York Magazine as “the improv team to watch!”) Jill graduated from Northwestern University where she majored in Performance Studies.
When she isn’t acting, she’s writing comedy pilots. Her favorite movie is Die Hard. She lives in Silver Lake with her husband and two children. She would very much like a pony.

The San Francisco Chronicle named me “Best Supporting Actress” for my work in the indie female buddy comedy SENSITIVITY TRAINING. Our film had its world premiere at the L.A. Film Festival and has secured distribution by The Orchard!
