About Us

Alex Fox and Rachel Lewis met in Chicago while studying and performing improv and sketch comedy at the world-renowned Second City, iO, and Annoyance Theaters. It was kismet at first laugh. Nicknaming each other Jon (Alex) and Eddie (Rachel) after their entertaining fathers, Alex and Rachel’s friendship and comedic partnership grew through their complementary humorous stylings and love of food.

After leaving Chicago, Alex and Rachel made their way west and began performing improv and sketch comedy together as, The Jon and Eddie Show. Taking the Los Angeles comedy scene by storm, this dynamic duo has been named MSN.com's Top 100 Things to See in LA and some of BUST Magazine's Funniest Ladies in Los Angeles. In 2010, The Friars Club of New York named The Jon and Eddie Show one of the Top Five Improv Groups in the nation. In the same year, Alex and Rachel branched out to produce online content, making The Jon and Eddie Web Series an official selection of the Los Angeles Independent Television Festival.

Alex and Rachel’s web, writing, and development presence continued to grow when they sold an original series, THE CRAFT STORE, to Fremantle Media. From there, A&R expanded into television, landing their first staff writing job at PBS on ODD SQUAD, a live action series about two kid investigators saving the day through math…oh, and it's funny. Working on Odd Squad, Alex and Rachel garnered an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Writing for a Children’s Series. Since then A&R have written for several shows including: BIZAARDVARK on The Disney Channel, THE STINKY & DIRTY SHOW and DANGER & EGGS on Amazon, and VAMPIRINA at Disney Jr. The duo has also sold two original shows to Nickelodeon – making one into a pilot. A&R’s love of puppets brought them to team up with Nerdist Industries to perform their original sketch comedy show for kids…with puppets, called PUPPET TOWN both as a monthly live show and comedy pilot. Most recently, Alex and Rachel wrote and produced, HELPSTERS, a delightful new series from the makers of Sesame Street, streaming now on AppleTV+! They are also 2020 participants of the WGA Showrunner Training Program. Alex and Rachel continue to perform improv and sketch comedy as The Jon and Eddie Show, and schedule all their writing meetings around food.
