5x5 Five Minutes, Five Questions Aisha Tyler

But I’m also a workaholic. Let’s not beat around the bush. Like, it’s a problem. I should probably slow down, but the world will probably slow me down anyway against my will at some point so I’m just trying to enjoy it while I still can.”

I am convinced Aisha Tyler is slowly taking over television. You can hear her voice on Season 8 of FX's "Archer"; the Season 12 finale of CBS's "Criminal Minds" airs next week and she's already wrapped filming on season 13; Tyler's fifth season with The CW revival of "Whose Line Is It Anyway" begins at the end of the month; and she is a daily host on CBS's "The Talk," which is where I caught her on her lunch break between tapings.
