Book Aisha Tyler
Celebrity comedian Aisha Tyler’s talent and versatility sparked her rapid ascent in Hollywood and have earned her critical raves and industry respect. Her hot-streak stint as the first female and African-American host of E!’s Emmy-winning “Talk Soup” landed her firmly in the spotlight. After “Talk Soup,” Aisha moved quickly into television and film, enjoying another first: being the first African-American to play an extended character arc on NBC’s “Friends.” She later co-starred with Jennifer Love Hewitt in the CBS hit “Ghost Whisperer,” and had recurring roles on both “CSI” and “24” in the same season. Aisha has made numerous television appearances, including FX’s “Nip/Tuck,” HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” Comedy Central’s “Reno 911,” Cartoon Network’s “The Boondocks,” and many more.
Aisha got her start as a stand-up comic, and has brought her trademark wit to multiple appearances on “The Tonight Show,” “Late Night with David Letterman,” “The Today Show,” “Politically Incorrect,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “The Late Late Show,” and more. February 2009 brings Aisha’s own hotly anticipated one-hour special to Comedy Central—“Aisha Tyler is Lit: Live at the Fillmore.” Recorded in her hometown of San Francisco at the historic Fillmore rock venue, the special is drawing rave early reviews.
Critical acclaim for Aisha has been effusive. Esquire called Aisha “sweetly wicked.” Maxim anointed her one of its “Hot 100” two years in a row. USA Today praised her “dazzling versatility.” US Weekly called her “terrific,” and “swiss-watch perfect.” Vibe crowned her “the next Queen of Comedy.” And Tongue gushed, “[she’s] hot-as-the-day-is-long and so cool…the most unlikely crossover since Charlie Pride.”
