I admit, before appearing in Kanye West’s video for Slow Jam, I really was not aware of everything Aisha Tyler had done to that point. After seeing her at various award shows and talk shows for a few years, it seems as if Aisha’s fire sizzled a bit. Don’t count her out just yet because this actress/comedian has been putting in some work.
Actress Aisha Tyler stars in her first one-hour stand-up comedy special: “Aisha Tyler is Lit: Live at the Fillmore,” this Saturday, February 21st at 11 PM on the Comedy Central network.
Her show, that plays as much like a rock concert as a conventional stand-up comedy performance, features Aisha ripping into such topics as marriage, sexual positions, Hollywood’s obsession with plastic surgery and her own obsession with videogames, in a high-energy rant that keeps the audience on the edge of its seat.
The uncut, uncensored DVD of the special, which goes on sale Tuesday, February 24th, is the maiden production of Aisha’s banner company, Hot Machine, and offers an additional 25 minutes of uncut uncensored concert footage, as well as an half-hour behind-the-scenes “making of” featurette.
