Aisha Tyler

Comedian Aisha Tyler, who currently appears as a regular on CBS' afternoon show The Talk, aside from her guest starring work on other shows such as Glee and Archer, has been tapped to be the host of a new version of comedy show Whose Line is it Anyway? for the CW Network which will run as summer series.

Many of you will remember the original incarnation of the show, which made regular Wayne Brady a star,  when it ran on ABC from 1998-2004 hosted by Drew Carey.

The premise will still be the same in which a team of comedians go through a series of improv games using ideas from the audience and host creating different characters and scenes. At the end of each show a winner will be announced for the most creative and funniest improvisation.

No premiere date as yet has been set, but no doubt one will be announced soon.
