Ever made a decision you instantly regretted? Blown a job interview? Said the wrong thing at exactly the wrong time? Yeah; neither have we. Oh, who are we kidding—we’re all human, so we’ve all suffered a Self-Inflicted Wound (or two). Even Aisha Tyler has—and now, the co-host of The Talk, star of Archer, recurring guest star on Friends, creator of the top-ranked podcast Girl on Guy, and author of Self-Inflicted Wounds serves up a spectacular collection of her own. From almost setting herself on fire to vomiting on a boy she liked to going into crushing debt to pay for college and then throwing away her degree to become a comedian, Tyler’s life has been a series of spectacularly epic fails—but the personal insights and authentic wisdom she gathered along the way very successfully demonstrate the power of calamity to shape life, learning, and success. Presented by Town Hall as part of its Arts & Culture series with Elliott Bay Book Company.
