About Aisha Tyler:

Aisha Tyler serves as the new host of the critically acclaimed improv show “Whose Line Is It Anyway?,” which features the return of cast members Ryan Stiles, Wayne Brady and Colin Mochrie. She is also currently a co-host of Emmy-nominated show “The Talk,” and voices the character of sexy superspy Lana on the hit animated series “Archer.”

Tyler’s talent and versatility sparked her rapid ascent in Hollywood.  Her hot-streak stint at the head of E! Entertainment’s “Talk Soup” landed her firmly in the Hollywood spotlight and revitalized the Emmy-winning show, which she was the first woman and African-American to captain.  After leaving “Talk Soup,” Tyler moved quickly into television and film roles, enjoying another first — the first African-American to play an extended character arc on “Friends.”  She co-starred with Jennifer Love Hewitt in the hit drama “Ghost Whisperer,” had extended roles on two of television’s top dramas “CSI” and “24,” and has made numerous appearances on other series, including, “Nip/Tuck,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “Reno 911” and more.

Tyler is the creator and host of an award-winning podcast, “Girl on Guy.”  Chosen as a best new comedy podcast of 2011 by iTunes, “Girl on Guy” is a show about stuff guys love, brought to you by the ultimate guy’s girl.  The podcast has over 6 million downloads since its inception in July of 2011, and it is 5-star rated by thousands of fans on iTunes.  It is also frequently the number one comedy podcast on iTunes. Tyler’s second book, “Self Inflicted Wounds: Heartwarming Tales of Epic Humiliation,” was based on a recurring element of the podcast, the book is a series of comic essays. Tyler released the successful “Swerve:  Reckless Observations of a Post-Modern Girl” in 2004.  A collection of hilarious comic essays on pop-culture, the book has been praised for its frank and funny look at what it’s like to be a girl.

In 2009, Tyler returned to her stand-up comedy roots, starring in a hilarious one-hour special for Comedy Central, “Aisha Tyler is Lit:  Live at the Fillmore.” Tyler has had roles in Adam Sandler’s hit “Bedtime Stories,” the crime drama “Death Sentence,” opposite Kevin Bacon, and the Universal comedy “Balls of Fury,” with Christopher Walken.  She completed filming “Black Water Transit,” a film set in New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, directed by iconic Brit Tony Kaye and starring Lawrence Fishburne.  She also had roles in “.45,” opposite Milla Jovovich, and “Santa Clause III,” with Tim Allen.
