Screenwriter ed solomon tricks of the trade

Edward James "Ed" Solomon (born September 15, 1960) is an American writer, producer and director. He began his career in college as a joke writer, stand up comedian, and playwright and, while still in college, was a staff writer for Laverne & Shirley — making him (at the time) the youngest member of the Writers Guild of America. He then spent three years writing the cult Showtime TV series, It's Garry Shandling's Show, and has created critically acclaimed hit franchise films in each of the past four decades, including Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure and Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey (with Chris Matheson) (the 1980s), Men in Black (90s), Charlie's Angels (00s) and X-Men (uncredited - 2000s) and Now You See Me (’10s).
