I was just reminiscing about old programs I watched when I was a kid and I realized that I hadn't said thank you yet! Magic school bus was a huge part of my childhood growing up, I'd like to thank you for addIng your charm and energy to the show. You really made it that great show it was 🙂
Listen you: Your SAG acceptance speech should be in the Library of Congress. During the filming of 'Nashville' I was TM for N. Sedaka. You and I stole the billboard of you at the entrance to the Fairmont room and we used magic markers to color in parts of your likeness. George was your TM. I went to England last year with your Travel Agent Anne Block. I take care of the travel for one of your friends, Cher, for many years. I have some vinyl from both Broadway shows that I would be honoured for you to sign some day. Ken Bruce firstname.lastname@example.org Hold your horses, Lily
Lily, It was great seeing you at the HRC dinner in NOLA a couple of years ago. Nice to see you remembered me from your NY back in 1985. What a hoot to think we old gals have been fighting the same fight for so many years! Maybe we don't always agree, maybe Ms Sweeney wasn't my favorite teacher, but we are both together in a mindset that advances the rights of humanity! You go girl!
Lily, Do you still have the stained glass framed piece I sent you when you and Jane lived on Sierra Alta? I don't know if you ever de-coded it but it war a pictorial of your profile incorporated with your ignature1
Please bring Ernestine out to do a skit on SNL with Michael Flynn calling Russia. PLEASE, it would be fantastic!!!
Lily, my lovely girlfriend and I just finished season 2 of Grace and Frankie! What a joy to watch. You and Jane embody Frankie and Grace and make them come to life. Your character is very special to me personally. I have attempted to live my life being as true to myself as possible, like Frankie, and I have had to live with some of the consequences. More importantly I have been able to live with all the joy it brings. Your "arms open wide" attitude is fabulous. You as Frankie brings to mind one of my favorite Robert Heinlein quotes from Lazarus Long - “Everything in excess! To enjoy the flavor of life, take big bites. Moderation is for monks.” Thanks for the laughter and love. Rich
I'm watching the great Lily Tomlin on Youtube this evening. It reminds me of my favorite celebrity story. There will be name dropping however I will limit myself to one. Lily and I were sharing a dressing room back sometime in the mid '80s in CA. I think the theater was the Doolittle on Hollywood and Vine in, you guessed it, Hollywood. Now there is nothing strange about sharing a dressing room with the amazing Lily Tomlin. I mean one works in the theater and perhaps one gets lucky and actually WORKS. So, Lily and I shared this dressing room at a major theater in LA. Unfortunately, I was never able to speak to her at length or at any time interval whatsoever. It's not that she was rude, not at all, the women is a lovely and gracious lady. No, it was more of a temporal issue. Indeed, we did share a dressing room. However, I came in 6 months after her show Search for Signs..... closed. Discuss.
I saw you last week at The Lyric Theatre in Stuart, Florida. It was so very kind of you to invite me to come backstage & I was so happy to meet you. There have been many hard things in my life recently, like so many other Americans. My sister has been very sick & struggling with various insurances. I've had my own health struggles &, though insured, also struggling to pay those bills. Not to get to deep into it but it was so great to see your show, laugh & relax, feel uplifted & renewed. A total shock & such a happy surprise. I want to thank you & Jane both for the creative work that you do, & bringing good energy & thought into the world on a number of levels ( because that's what creative work does). I for one enjoyed your onstage ego trip; it was all true. Ego trips are like vacations- they're very valuable as long as you come back & get to work. This is clearly routine for you, maybe even (co)scripted? Thanks once more Ms. Tomlin! I hope we meet again. (enjoy the soap) Penny
You are perfect to play K Conway
I have been enjoying the Laugh-In reruns on Decades ... they've recently gotten to the episodes where you were in the cast. This week they ran the Halloween episode where you did the double-talk routine around Orson Welles. Still hilarious after close to five decades! Thanks for all the laughs, Lily. 🙂
Thank you sharing smiles in Tallahassee! Especially for pointing out the political absurdities...we NEED it!!
gotta catch a live show ! gonna make your way to Houston between Tally Florida and California??
We went to good ole Cass Tech at the same time (54 to 58). Wish I'd have known you then.
I am watching laugh in. I have a great idea for something new, would fit in for these times. Also another idea for supporting Muslims. Not leaving it on this site. Contact me when you can? You can look me up, I'm safe. I have 2 great ideas for what is going on now. I think! 831-239-2539
I saw you perform in Orlando on Feb. 4 and wanted to thank you, not just for a delightful evening of comedy, but for your discretion. During the Q&A, you read a note from someone asking how we should deal with the current political climate. You didn't seem thrilled with the question, muttered something about supporting people who march, and quickly moved on to the next question. While I believe I would be in agreement with your politics, I was relieved that you did that. It helped me -- and I assume the rest of the audience -- stay inside the "comedy bubble" a bit longer. Sure, reality hit us smack in the head the next morning, but for one shining evening, we got to bask in your comedic glow. Thanks for not killing our buzz!
Hey Lily! I am so thankful that I was introduced to "Grace and Frankie", because I got to "know" you. After watching the 2 seasons in one day, I checked for more videos and interviews of you and I was just inspired by you. Your way of life is admirable and inspiring. I loved how you said when you received your well-deserved lifetime award "ironically, this award makes you feel not that you’ve done so much, but that you wish you had done so much more". And your passion and activism is exemplary. I am a Swiss/Turkish gay muslim studying law in Zurich and people like you give me the strength and motivation. Love, laughter and joy! Hugs and smile, Kerem
dear lily, please ignore my mistakes in writing...my english is enough, but not more😉 i want to thank you and jane for making grace and frankie in such a great and wonderful way....i'm sure you both give an example for what is possible to deal with getting older. especially for women, who often suffer with this.....and i'am sure that you make the first step for us to realize that it could be an adventure to accept getting older, to love it...to go with what is....and this not only in later years....also our whole life..... thank you ❤❤
Hi Lily and Jane - Been a fan for years. I waited too long to see your show in Provincetown last year, would you be having any New England performances this year? Love Grace and Frankie! Keep doing what you are doing. My friends and I appreciate the adult humor in it and storylines! Deb
Dear Miss Tomlin, Your appearances on Laugh In back in the day was a great influence on my style of humor today. Thank you for the laughter!
