Aisha Tyler is an American stand-up comic, author and actress who has a net worth of $4 million dollars. She gained widespread recognition as the host of the shows, "Talk Soup" and "The Fifth Wheel". Since the early 2000s, she has gone back and forth between film and television work, appearing in such projects as "Friends", "CSI: Miami", "Nip/Tuck", "24", "Boston Legal", and "XIII: The Series".

Early Life

Aisha Taylor was born on September 18, 1970 in San Francisco, California. Her parents are James Tyler, a photographer, and Robin Gregory, a teacher. She spent a year living in Ethiopia before returning to the San Francisco area. She was raised by her father after her parents separated when she was ten years old.

Taylor attended an arts magnet school in San Francisco, where she was classmates with Sam Rockwell (on whom she had a crush) and Margaret Cho. She followed Rockwell to acting class one day which intrigued her and got her interested in improv and sketch comedy. Aisha graduated from Dartmouth College with a degree in Environmental Policy in 1992. After college, she began working in an advertising firm, and then left the corporate world to focus on a stand-up career, touring the comedy circuit for a year, before settling in Los Angeles in the mid nineties.


Tyler began her professional on-camera career with a small role on "Nash Bridges" in the late 90s. This led to work on such shows as "The Pretender" and "Curb Your Enthusiasm". Her career in TV, however, really took off in 2001 when she became one of the hosts of E!'s "Talk Soup," as well as the reality TV dating show "The Fifth Wheel." However, "Talk Soup" was canceled after just a year of her hosting, and she left "The Fifth Wheel" around the same time. She received an NAACP Image Award for her role in the indie film "Moose Mating," and she starred, directed, and wrote "The Whipper" shortly thereafter.

Tyler became a household name when she joined the cast of "Friends" in seasons nine and ten as Dr. Charlie Wheeler, who was Joey and Ross's girlfriend. After her stint on "Friends," she had guest spots on "Nip/Tuck" and "CSI: Miami."

She took season-long recurring roles on both "CSI" and "24" in 2004 through 2005. She filmed her own talk show pilot for ABC, as well as a pilot for a CBS sitcom, but unfortunately neither were picked up. She had a regular role on CBS's "Ghost Whisperer" and then appeared in several films such as "The Santa Claus" 2 and 3, ".45," "Balls of Fury," "Death Sentence," and "Black Water Transit." Tyler continued to make several appearances around this time on TV shows like "Boston Legal" and "Reno 911!". She wrote her first book in 2004, "Swerve: A Guide to the Sweet Life for Postmodern Girls."
