She started improv classes with the ACME Comedy Theater where she met both her writing partner and her future husband. Alex and her writing partner began to work on the animated series Casper. Shortly after, she left her ad job to become a full time writer. In 1996, while still writing for Casper, Alex worked on the popular TV show Power Rangers Zeo, where she provided the voice of Queen Machina, the queen of the Machine Empire (she had previously provided the voice of one-time monster Madame Woe in the series' predecessor, Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers). In 1997 Alex became a cast member on the sketch comedy show Mad TV. She is best known for playing Miss Swan, which was based on a combination of singer Bjork and her real life grandmother who was Hungarian-Mongolian. In 1999, she became a main voice cast member on the popular TV show Family Guy. She voices Lois Griffin, Carol Pewterschmidt-West, and Brenda Quagmire on Family Guy.
