Self-Inflicted Wounds: Heartwarming Tales of Epic Humiliation - Aisha Tyler
We’ve all tripped in front of a crush or spilled coffee on ourselves or overslept on that one day we needed to be early, but these foibles are nothing compared to the spectacular, hilariously rendered portraits of Aisha Tyler’s epic fails. Known to many from her podcast Girl on Guy, or from being on The Talk, or voice turns as Lana Kane in Archer and several video games, or her standup, or as the one black person on Friends that time, or perhaps the new Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Tyler’s talents and ability to laugh are boundless. More than an exercise in bar topping stories, this book is a fascinating look at her singularly determined life. Watching how a black, socially conscious, nerdy, and adventurous girl with little supervision grows up to be one of the funniest and sexiest women ever makes this book well worth the read. This is a lady for the new world: ready to make you laugh, kick your ass, triumph at trivia, save the planet, and get us all to be a little more honest about that time we peed our pants.
