Aisha Tyler (born 18 September 1970 in San Francisco, California) is an American actress and stand-up comedian who has hosted the American version of Whose Line Is It Anyway?, beginning with the ninth season, which first aired in the summer of 2013. Her catchphrase for the show is "Let's make some stuff up" and, like previous host Drew Carey, she often exchanges witty banter with the cast of performers. Since the eleventh season, Aisha has participated in some of the games along with the performers (such as Scenes from a Hat and Song Styles).

Tyler was raised from the age of ten by her father, Jim, a photographer, following his divorce from her mother, Robin Gregory, a school teacher. Exhibiting an interest in comedy at an early age, Aisha studied acting at School of the Arts High School and also took improv classes on the side.

She is also currently a co-host for CBS' The Talk morning show, the voice of Lana on FX's animated sitcom Archer and has an acclaimed podcast GirlOnGuy. She has previously had recurring roles on hit TV shows such as Ghost Whisperer, Friends, CSI, 24 and XIII: The Series.
