Aisha Tyler’s hot-streak stint at the head of E! Entertainment’s Talk Soup landed her firmly in the Hollywood spotlight. She was the first woman and African-American host and her run revitalized the Emmy-winning show.
After Talk Soup, Aisha moved quickly into television and film roles, enjoying another first, the first African-American to play an extended character on NBC’s Friends. She co-starred in the CBS hit Ghost Whisperer, had extended roles on two of television’s top dramas CSI and 24, and has made numerous appearances on shows including Nip/Tuck, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Reno 911, The Boondocks and many more.
Aisha currently voices sexy super spy Lana Kane on FX’s hit animated series Archer, which debuted in January 2010 as the highest-rated new show in FX history. Critics consistently hail it as one of the best animated shows on television. Aisha has also wrapped filming in Toronto and Paris on the action-thriller Series XIII, opposite Stuart Townsend for exec producer Luc Besson and Canal+.
In 2009, Aisha returned to her stand-up roots for an explosive one-hour comedy central special entitled Aisha Tyler Is Lit: Live at the Fillmore. The special is available on DVD everywhere now and includes behind-the-scenes footage and a music video she wrote, directed and stars in, the viral rap video “No Ass At All.”
Aisha’s razor wit has made her a favorite on The Tonight Show, Late Night with David Letterman, the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, the Today Show, Politically Incorrect, Jimmy Kimmel Live, CNN and many more. Aisha tours nationwide year-round and is at work on a second one-hour special. Aisha has had prime roles in several movies, including Adam Sandler’s Bedtime Stories, the thriller Death Sentence with Kevin Bacon, the comedy Balls of Fury with Christopher Walken, Black Water Transit with Laurence Fishburne and Karl Urban, .45 opposite Milla Jovovich, and The Santa Clauses 2 and 3 with Tim Allen. She is currently lensing the comedy Babymakers for director Jay Chandrasekhar, opposite Olivia Munn and Paul Schneider.
Aisha is a celebrated author, releasing the successful Swerve: Reckless Observations of a Post-Modern Girl, a collection of hilarious essays on pop culture, in 2004. She is a frequent contributor to Glamour magazine, with several pieces about the media’s unrealistic portrayal of feminine beauty, and is a comedic columnist for Entertainment Weekly.
Aisha is deeply dedicated to charity and volunteerism, serving on the board of Planned Parenthood, directing a film to benefit returning wounded warriors, acting as spokesperson for the American Red Cross, teaching dove self-esteem workshops for teenage girls, consulting with the Trust for Public Land’s Parks for People project, and fund-raising for Doctors Without Borders, Futures Without Violence, and the International Rescue Committee.
Aisha is an avid video game player. She was named to the exclusive Halo Council and voiced a character for the latest installment of the massive Halo franchise, Halo: Reach. She’s also a reigning Celebrity Jeopardy! champ.
Critical acclaim for Aisha is effusive. Esquire called Aisha “sweetly wicked,” designating her one of its “Women We Love.” US Weekly called her “Swiss-watch perfect.” Maxim anointed her one of its “Hot 100” two years in a row. The Hollywood Reporter calls her “wonderful” and MSN called her “smart, sexy and effortlessly funny.” She is a bit too modest to agree.
