Mrs. Tyler steps out of one danger zone and into another.
10 May 2013 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

Having known of Aisha Tyler for a number of years, due to her roles in 24 and Friends, I became much more interested in her after falling in love with Archer, a great animated show in which she provides the voice of the character Lana Kane. So when browsing Netflix I was drawn to her live comedy show.

I didn't expect much from it. To be honest, I expected to put up with 10-15 minutes and then switch it off if it wasn't funny enough. Unlike movies, I can give up on stand up comedy shows without having to watch the whole thing.

Thankfully, and to my surprise, Aisha proves to be very funny on stage. She's lively, not afraid to look a fool, and skips through a number of amusing topics, from her husband being against spanking to internet porn to women with breast implants who deny that they've had any work done to the trauma of seeing childbirth.

She does, obviously, speak from a female perspective and there are moments when she discusses some cultural differences between black people and white people but the core of her comedy is not based on race or gender. It's based on comedy. After being almost physically ill when I tried to make it through a Martin Lawrence stand up show, this is a great relief. I love hearing from comedians who aren't afraid to let their race, upbringing, values define who they are as a personality (Chris Rock nails it, Richard Pryor is a master, as is Billy Connolly), but I hate hearing from comedians who allow those things to completely define their comedy (Lawrence!!!!).

Mrs. Tyler is very likable, pretty funny and smart enough to play to her audience perfectly and get the maximum from each gag. I also enjoyed her "geekier" references (especially the Total Recall comment). Perhaps not in the top tier of stand up shows, but this is an enjoyable way to pass some time.
