Problem in running custom action and rasa shell in same command


while running “rasa run actions & rasa shell” command ,I get struck here:

2019-11-08 11:45:34 INFO rasa_sdk.endpoint - Starting action endpoint server… 2019-11-08 11:45:34 INFO rasa_sdk.executor - Registered function for ‘action_joke’. 2019-11-08 11:45:34 INFO rasa_sdk.endpoint - Action endpoint is up and running on http (‘’, 5055)

where as according the tutorial YouTube ,it should work fine.

What could be possible reason(s) for it?


Although when I run “rasa run actions” and “rasa shell” separately it works fine.

So why am I not able to run them in same command?
