Will Serve as Bridge Between Technology and Media at CES 2017
Los Angeles, CA, November 2 2016 – The Consumer Technology Association (CTA)™ today announced that actor, director, author and comedian Aisha Tyler will be the CES® Ambassador for 2017.
Aisha Tyler defines the term multi-hyphenate, by working simultaneously in multiple media formats. She is host of CBS’ Emmy-winning The Talk, a series regular on CBS’s Criminal Minds, the voice of superspy Lana Kane in FX’s Emmy-winning Archer and host the CW’s comedy improv show “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” An avid gamer and tech enthusiast, Tyler is a one-woman content machine, in engineering, hosting, conforming and editing her award-winning podcast, Girl on Guy, and also in directing, producing, shooting, and editing multiple short films, music videos, comedy specials, and recently, her first feature film.
“I can’t think of a more perfect ambassador for CES than Aisha Tyler,” said Karen Chupka, senior vice president, CES and corporate business strategy, Consumer Technology Association. “Aisha has torn down barriers for women and diversity in technology, effortlessly integrated and encouraged the use of tech in everyday life and redefined what it means to be a ‘gamer.’ CES encompasses every aspect of tech and Aisha is a superb example of how innovative technologies can be positive influences in our lives.”
Aisha’s podcast was chosen by iTunes as a best new comedy podcast of 2011 and has more than 17 million downloads to date. She produces and engineers the podcast with nothing more than two microphones, an iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.
“As a podcaster, author, producer and filmmaker, I can attest to how technology has not only made my life better, but more creatively robust, dynamic and productive in every way,” said Tyler. “I recently directed my first feature film in just seven days on a microbudget, and technology played into every aspect of completing that creative mission effectively. Technological innovation is my artistic secret weapon. I am incredibly honored to be the CES ambassador for 2017.”
