Ed Solomon began at 19 as a joke-writer and a stand up comedian. While still a student at UCLA, he became a staff writer on the ABC sitcom Laverne and Shirley. He went on to become a staff writer and producer on Showtime’s It’s Garry Shandling’s Show, an early cable hit that was experimental and groundbreaking in its approach to television comedy.
With writing partner Chris Matheson, he wrote the film Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and its sequel, Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey. The third Bill & Ted movie, “Bill & Ted Face the Music” is in development with a script by Matheson & Solomon and Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter set to reprise their roles.
