Aisha Tyler blaxploitation

Aisha Tyler made a splash as the first black host of E's The Soup (back when it was still Talk Soup), and she's been a star ever since, appearing on Friends, Nip/Tuck, Politically Incorrect, and movies like .45. When not doing the Hollywood thing, she's appeared in a string of popular web clips, including "The Fropranos," a blaxploitation parody of The Sopranos. And she keeps sharp by taking a stand-up act on the road. In clubs, she lets her bubbly personality gush, slides into dead-on-target voices like a valley-girl accent, and riffs on everything from relationships to fake boobs — or, as she calls them, "tig old fake bitties."
