Aisha Tyler is co-host of CBS’ The Talk, the voice of Lana on FX’s hit Archer, and host of the CW Summer 2013 success Whose Line Is It Anyway?. Her book, Self Inflicted Wounds: Heartwarming Tales of Epic Humiliation, is a New York Times best seller, based on a recurring element of her award-winning podcast, Girl on Guy, an iTunes best comedy podcast of 2011. Known for roles on Friends, CSI, 24 and The Ghost Whisperer, Aisha will be a featured character in the new Ubisoft video game Watch Dogs, Fall 2013.
Grammy winner Loudon Wainwright III’s recording career started in 1970 and now includes 25 albums. The latest is Older Than My Old Man Now, which employs Wainwright’s unique mix of poignancy and devastating wit to examine aging. Wainwright’s songs have been recorded by Bonnie Raitt, Johnny Cash, Earl Scruggs, Kate & Anna McGarrigle, Rufus Wainwright, and Mose Allison, among others. Also an accomplished actor, Wainwright has appeared in films directed by Martin Scorsese, Hal Ashby, Christopher Guest, Tim Burton, Cameron Crowe, and Judd Apatow, and can next be seen in the independent film Pleased To Meet Me, and a one-man-play entitled Surviving Twin.
