Tickets are now on sale for an Evening of Classic Lily Tomlin, spanning the career of the multi-talented performer, at 8 p.m. April 23 at the Paramount Theatre, 16th and Glenarm streets. Doors open at 7 p.m.
Inspired by early comic pioneers like Lucille Ball, Bea Lillie, Imogene Coca and Jean Carroll, Tomlin left college to pursue her dream and fine-tune her craft starting in local coffee houses, then moving on to New York landmark clubs, building along the way a strong following. In 1966 she made her television debut on “The Garry Moore Show” and “The Merv Griffin Show”, before joining, in 1969, the top-rated cast of “Laugh-In” where she rose to national prominence with her characterizations of Ernestine, the irascible telephone operator, and Edith Ann, the devilish 6-year-old.
She went on to co-write and star in six comedy television specials, and has guest-starred in numerous television shows including “Homicide,” “X-Files,” “Will and Grace,” “Murphy Brown,” “The West Wing,” “Malibu Country,” and her new series, “Grace and Frankie” co-starring with Jane Fonda.
Reserved seating is $48 – $95 (plus service charges). Tickets are available at www.altitudetickets.com/event/lily-tomlin-4660/ or by calling 303-893-8497.
