Happy Birthday Aisha Tyler!

September 18, 2012

Aisha Tyler is among the lady-geek royalty. Best known for her stint on Talk Soup, her role as Mother Nature in the Santa Clause sequels, her role as Andrea Marino in Ghost Whisper, and of course her current role of LANAAAA in Archer.

She’s also got a sweet podcast called “Girl on Guy with Aisha Tyler,” often inviting comedian friends to appear. She writes for Glamour, Jane, and Entertainment Weekly magazines, and does a huge amount of charity work.

But of course, Aisha is more than just a pretty face, a talented actor, and a hilarious comedian. She’s an enthusiastic gamer. She’s also voicing a character in Halo: Reach, her favorite game series. Earlier this year, she presented on behalf of Ubisoft at E3. Naturally, there were jerks within gaming culture who felt the need to complain and question her gamer cred. Aisha snapped back with the following:

I play.

I’ve been playing my whole life.

I’m not ashamed of it.

I don’t apologize for it.

It’s who I am.

To the core.

I’m a gamer.

And you’re pretty awesome, too. Happy Birthday, Aisha!
