Just seen Grandma superlative performance a genuine joy to watch. Thanks Lily and the rest of the people involved it will stay with me for a long time.
Lily, just saw Grandma. You really nailed that particular type of gm.I have there grown grands, abs I embarrass the shit out of them most of the time. Not even trying.
Miss Lily, Your work with Miss Fonda on Grace & Frankie is sublime. There is a thin line between tragedy and comedy that you skate in each and every scene. Watching you work is a Master Class in characterization. You've inspired me to keep working as an actor. I had thought of quitting this year. Looking forward to the new season. And if you ever decide to hold a workshop on performing, I want to be front and center. Sincerely. Gerry M. PS: Congratulations on your marriage. I admire your partnership with Miss Jane. My partner Mr. Padilla and I are coming up on 5 years together. Maybe this year, a trip to city hall.
You both have taught me so much over the years! My first movie to ever watch with Lily was "9 to 5" and I fell in love with the movie and Lily! Then of course, I went online and researched her career and I came across your wife Jane! I watched "The Search For Signs of Intelligent Life In the Universe" and I was in awe! I just figured that I would tell you both how much you have blessed my life with your talents! I'm a seventeen year old girl in love with both of your work! I'm so excited to see Lily in Broken Arrow on April 22nd! Keep on keeping on! Much love! -Kolbi
Lily, My husband and I have watched almost everything you have done. In October we celebrate our 44th anniversary. We live almost into Ventura County and it is a long drive to the areas you may be seen. I am now disabled and can no longer drive. My husband is a Registered Nurse of almost 40 years and his work schedule is about to change from nights to days. Just watched Graham Norton and saw you there with Ron Howard. May you both have continuous success in your lives. Richard & David
February 15, 2016--Monday (Sent at: 7:52pm) I LOVE YOU, *, (
Love Grace and Frankie!
Hi lilly how are you
Absolutely loved "Grandma" and were deeply touched. You all are so poignant and smart, and "right on". Thanks Lily, for a lifetime of great effort, benefiting us all. Keep stroking, Love, Bob and Stacy
I know this isn't the most appropriate place for this but I am flying all the way to San Diego to take my boyfriend to your show! Is there any way I can get information on a meet and greet? I can't find it anywhere! it would mean the WORLD to us if we could!! Thank you!!!
Saw your show in Wilmington NC and loved it! The energy you bring on stage is captivating. I send my love to you and Jane.
Ms. Lily, I am so privileged to have witnessed many of your performances. I want to thank you for being so diligent and consistent with your gifts. You provide laughter in a world needing healing .. you are a provider, of hope and humility. Thank you.
Thanks for all the smiles you draw in my face. Grandma superb, I didn't know mines, I hope they had that sparkle, bravery and compromise, tenderness too. Thanks to you and Jane because Grace and Frankie is pure joy, joy the world that being older is not a punishment, it's a privilege that we must appreciate. I know because at my middle age, I realize I must be me, that's nothing wrong with it. It was a long ride home. The best for you and your wife Mrs. Tomlin.
You are an extraordinary, beautiful, sensitive woman. I admire you.... Love you!!! And thank you
January 27, 2016 *** The following letter is meant to be read as a work of FICTION except by those to whom it has not been properly addressed...i.e. stamped, first-classed, inkie-dinked, etc.: THIS LETTER IS TO BE READ ONLY BY CELEBRATED COMEDIENNE LILY TOMLIN AND HER NICE KIND FRIENDS, WHOM I LIKE…. Uh, “THE SERIAL KILLER AILEEN WUORNOS” WHO LOOKS LIKE “THE ABUSIVE ENTREPRENEUR DEBBIE FIERRO” SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO READ MY NOTES, UNLESS AILEEN WUORNOS (WHO HAS INDEED ALREADY TRIED TO MURDER ME, OR MADE SOME DREADFUL GESTURE TO DO SO) CAN BEHAVE HERSELF (which Aileen has seemed unable to do, and should be re-arrested and re-evaluated for an actual execution this time, because of it. I am serious, and I am not joking. (It appears that Ms. Aileen Wuornos may not have been executed, and may continue to assault and injure and cause irreversible brain damage to the actress Lily Tomlin--especially after Aileen Wuornos tried to murder me while we all hung out at Rubyfruit Bar about 16 years ago, or slightly more recent than even that. Not yikes. Not from me.) ________ ...Still I ask, liked I asked back when: WHY DID YOU GIVE ME DATE RAPE DRUGS, AND THEN...ABOUT 23 YEARS AGO OR SO??? I AM NOT 56 YEARS OLD, I WAS JUST PLAYING WHEN I SAID THAT ABOUT 8 YEARS AGO, PRIOR TO TODAY, 2016 A.D. ARE YOU A MAN???,…LILY TOMLIN—NO. THIS WAY—ARE YOU A MAN??? WHILE LAYING THERE IN BED WITH YOU ABOUT 23 YEARS AGO, WHILE YOU PERFORMED VAGINAL KISSING ON ME AND SOME SOFT FISTING, I THINK, AND I WOKE UP A LITTLE IT LOOKED LIKE YOU WERE ABOUT TO TAKE A PENIE OUT OF YOUR PANTS, OR LIKE YOU WERE CONSIDERING IT. I THINK YOU SAID, "I HAVE TO." I REMEMBER THAT YOU TOLD ME I SHOULD BE IN FRONT AND YOU IN THE BACK DURING THE SEX POSITION I THOUGHT I'D INVENTED (i.e. "PIGGY-BACKING" YOU AND I HAD CALLED IT). WHY DID YOU GIVE ME DRUGS, LILY??? OH, BECAUSE YOU KNEW I WAS HAVING NEURO-PSYCHIATRIC ISSUES AND I HAD CONSENTED? YES, I GENUINELY…BUT MAY VAGUELY REMEMBER…YOUR ASKING ME IF I NEEDED MEDICATION, AND MY TELLING YOU THAT THE DOCTORS HAD NOT REALLY HEARD ME, AND THEN MY CONSENTING TO RECEIVING HELP FROM YOU. I AM NOT WEAK, AND I DO NOT MAKE THINGS UP. BUT EVEN THIS PAST OCTOBER 16, 2015 AT THE 49 GROVE STREET PARTY IT SEEMED YOU WERE REALLY ENCOURAGING THE TALL BRUNETTE NAMED "CATHY KREBS" TO TALK TO ME, AND CATHY KREBS SEEMED TO BE PART OF SOME RUSE TO HARRASS AND FRIGHTEN ME, AS SHE REPEATED THE SINGULAR AND DUMB PHRASE USED BY THOSE WHO HARASS ME WHEN THEY ARE HARASSING ME, WHICH THEY HAVE STOPPED DOING SINCE I HAVE BEEN PRETENDING TO RECORD THEM, WHILE OTHERS ACTUALLY RECORDED THEM BE MEANIES. WHY ARE YOU TOYING WITH ME IN THE BAR, THOUGH? JUST TALK TO ME, PLEASE. THIS IS ALL WEIRD AND DISTRACTING TO ME, AND I SWEAR I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT GOES ON. I AM INCREDULOUS. THIS IS NOT SEEMING LOGICAL... AM I REALLY THIS HORRIBLE A HUMAN BEING THAT ALL MY FAVORITE PEOPLE WOULD JUMP TO THE FRONT OF THE LINE TO ANNOY ME IN THE WAYS I'VE BEEN, HERE?....Why? SORRY YOU SEEM T(VIA YOUTUBE.COM) TO HATE ME, LILY, I THOUGHT I AT LEAST HAD DREAMS THAT HAD POTENTIAL...Oh well...I will one day find a way to enjoy life. Or I will give up. I THOUGHT I DID SOMETHING TO HURT YOU. AND I DON'T WANT TO MISS OUT AGAIN; I DON'T WANT TO MESS UP AGAIN...I HAVE NO UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT GOES ON IN LIFE...God sometimes protects fools, babies, the unwanted, dreamers, friends of The Muppets, and me. I want to go away, but on my terms...I do not want to be assaulted for an umpteenth time. I do not want to be tortured. I do not want to be murdered by the clumsy and diabetic nutrient deprived sickos at the hospitals or on the sidewalks. Oh well. I didn't realize...I was right! I really do live in an unworthy world...! I thought I was just being aloof and bored and too judgmental. But people and other aspects of life really aren't worthy of me. Are you a man? Fine, then. Are you an assailant??? Fine, then. A woman called me in September posing as your attorney, Ms. Vivian Schneider (and with a San Francisco number, I think it was). But I had already been informed very many years ago, that the attorney Ms. Vivian Schneider is long-deceased. The woman who called me was not an attorney. She was unaware of certain basic tenets of law, she became frightened by the possibility that this phone conversation which she permitted, agreed to, and consented to be recorded and possibly submitted to a larger audience which she agreed may include a court appointed judicial official, actuall could be. This impersonator, who really seemed to be interested in hurting you, Lily Tomlin, rather loudly hypothesized that you are presently a cannibal and killer and that no one has yet, "made a complete report," which the woman posing over the phone remarked was, "funny." At first I thought it was Meryl Streep doing a voice over the phone, or maybe Shirley MacLaine. I doubt that those two actresses have time for that! the impostor seemed to be trying to get me to think you were plotting to soon harm me, which I already know is not true. My neighbors who are friends with your friends whom I like, assured me that you are not angry with me, and that we are still connected. So be very careful, because the women around you are idiots, are violent, and like to harm you. I PROTECT YOU AS BEST I CAN. YOU ARE THE SOFTEST AND NICEST WOMAN I HAVE EVER MET. (Woman, right??? Please?) Okay, I AM WORKING ON MAKING SURE YOU ARE NOT PHYSICALLY ABUSED FURTHER. I HAVE NOTHING ELSE TO REPORT ABOUT YOU. Amber Tyler Chase will probably have some more explaining to do, since I lost consciousness in front of her or her own look-alike on October 16, 2015 at the 49 Grove Street party...I fight in a way that is almost invisible, if I fight at all. But they have got to get a sting operation together before you, ONE OF THE WORLD'S MOST REKNOWNED COMEDIENNES, IS KILLED OR SO SEVERELY INJURED SOME MORE. Oh, by the way AMBER TYLER CHASE IS DANGEROUS TO YOU. I think she told me to JUMP INTO THE HUDSON RIVER AND TO LOOK LIKE I WAS MAKING A SUICIDE ATTEMPT ONE TIME, and she DELIBERATELY DID THINGS TO MAKE YOU THINK THAT I THOUGHT THAT, "LILY TOMLIN AND [THE LADY IN THE STARCHED BLOUSE AND JEANS AND TIMBERLAINS] ARE UGLY." Be well...I am still incredulous and wondering if I must have done something to cause a rift of some kind between us. We both need to hang out with more trustworthy people...But why the date rape drugs??? If you didn't like me, why have sex with me while I was unconscious? It was you, Lily, right? I can't say I perfectly know, at this point in time...And yes, I know there is a reason for this, there is something I need to have explained to me, by you. Please let's talk if I am able to come see you in June. (I think April will be too cold, and I need to raise the funds.) And FYI--not having you the way I wanted for all of my life was the only major distraction. I longed for who I liked. You. I have a low pain threshold and I am distracted by the feeling of unhappiness. I hope we can talk, without my being harmed for foolhardiness and neediness...I THINK PEOPLE MAY HAVE ALTERED MY LETTERS TO YOU. PMK PUBLICITY IS WHERE I SENT THE ONE FROM 2009, WHICH I THINK WAS USED TO ANNOY YOU. Don't feel too overwhelmed and sad. The reports I am sending about lots of different things ONLY include how I witness you being horribly abused by your friends, if I choose to include anything about you at all. They circulate and present to me vicious and threatening rumors about you that alienate you and have made the life-saving assistance being provided now--almost impossible. The lesbians I have seen around you at the bars abuse you, they beat you and terrorize you and harrass you, and they have alienated you from me and I have had to punch one and then smile at her pseudo-tough girlfriend. Okay, so I was raped in the hospitals, and am frequently raped there while drugged up, or after being denied the medications on my regimen. But there is a reason people wait until I am unconscious. (You too, Lily. They drug you before robbing you and beating you, etc.) I am Kenya Delloway. I have assumed, on a cosmic level, the role of your guardian angel. So, work with me a little here, okay?...We will talk in June, I hope? I miss you. I am trying to get work done, but my God, the violent and mean-spirited people around the world, on the internet, (and sometimes in the bars) won't leave me the hell alone. And why are people calling my Telemarketers' I.D. phone and posing as legal representatives to you, when the actual legal representatives (or whomever) were deceased a long time ago? Am I surrounded by like, the most gifted and adorable assailants that have ever lived? You and I were (are?) wives, according to our sweet and cosmically-ordained vows taken at the bar on Leroy Street in mid-1990s. Wow, how does a woman forget her wedding day? *I don't know* Please remain well. Please find some friends who can protect you from the abuse I have already sent the actress Judith Light notice about in an email to www.JudithLight.com, and I have asked Judith Light to ask Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton to help you to find some better friends than the abusive and actual serial killers who drug you at the bar and then make a game of reviving you, while passerby laugh when they tell the passerby, "Oh this is Lily Tomlin. She's just drunk." The women were observed contaminating your drinks with paralyzing drugs, and I watched your legs buckle while you tried to stand and protect yourself, or at least to retrieve your property from thief and assailant Debbra "Debbie" Fierro, who had assaulted you in front of me and the other women and men standing around. And as you fell to the ground, your almost dead body made a loud slump-thump, and you struggled to stand, and then the women were shouting your name and laughing while you struggled to even move your paralyzed arms and legs, which just simply looked like dead-weight limbs that you were unable to so much as drag as you lay paralysed on the ground, and they were beating and kicking you, and spitting on you. At one point, you looked relieved to see me standing there, and you may have told Debbie that I was your hero, while you seemed to feel confident that I was about to clobber Debbie. I was about to lift you up off the ground, but journalist Greta Van Sustern or someone who looked like the journalist kind of accosted me, and she reprimand me out of the blue, and told me to stay out of it and let it happen or something, and told me that I didn't want to get myself into trouble. I did not know it was you, but I vaguely felt, "That's Lily Tomlin," and I thought the random notion was absurd; I didn't understand what I saw. I do think that Greta Van Sustern wanted to get it all on film, to protect you. I think she may have even thought I was joining in by moving toward you, but my instinct was to pick you up off the ground. I didn't understand that idea either. Anyway, during one of the incidents I witnessed where the women at RubyFruit (now named Swine, on Hudson & Charles) had paralysed and tried to kill you and have fun reviving you, and Greta van Sustern (or whomever) WHO DID APPEAR TO BE KIND AND GOOD, AND TO DEFINITELY LIKE YOU AND FEEL APPALLED BY THE EVENT, said to me, to the effect of: "What are you doing???...You are supposed to love her!!! How could you treat her this way???" And I didn't know what was going on. You, Lily Tomlin, on one occasion had asked me while I stood there to please, literally, kick you and spit on you for the camera or something. I think you said that you wanted it to look like I was hurting you, and then for some kind of movie or creative project. When Greta Van Sustern was there at that point, I may have looked like I was about to kick you, but then I turned to Greta van Sustern or whomever the journalist was who approached, and I told her that you had asked me to kick you and spit on you for the camera, but that I was NOT GOING TO PARTICIPATE, because, "I think it is dumb." (If I have ever fought with you, I am sorry. I think you probably fought me too, I don't really understand. Trust me.) The known and supposedly executed SERIAL KILLER AILEEN WUORNOS seemed to be a partner in running the bar, with "Debbra (Debbie) Fierro" (who I knew as "Debbie") and "Debbie Fierro" does looks like Aileen Wuornos and was rumored to be Aileen Wuornos' sister, and some stated that Debbie Fierro was Aileen Wuornos herself with cosmetic surgery alterations--and this Debbie, who I only thought was just simply mean to her mentally-impaired girlfriend and also in violation of health department standards with her dirty caesar salads "from downstairs" and supposedly tainted cranberry juice, was reportedly a dangerous sociopath. I liked her. And Aileen Wuornos is nice too. But these people are dangerous. I know you are 75 or 76 years old, but as your, I don't know, cosmic marriage partner, and admirer of all time, I will ask that you find some people you can trust who will hang out with you and protect you if you must hang out where you know serial killer Aileen Wuornos hangs out or has friends. It looks like serial killer Aileen Wuornos has not been executed, as per her kind warning uploaded to youtube.com...I would love to hang out with you. I somehow vaguely remember wondering why your best bud, celebrated comedienne Carol Burnett (who is also one of the great producers of talk television, as hosted by celebrated comedienne Vicki Lawrence) was not able to summon better help for you when you were being abused by the criminally insane women, who may be police officers according to celebrated actress, producer, and film director Amber Tyler Chase (possibly a.k.a. Katherine Brooks) so many times in the bar and on the sidewalk. I was loaded on a horribly disabling medication regimen, that seemed to be killing me, so I was only vaguely aware of even half-way wondering if that was even you. Amber said the people abusing you are police officers. I will work as hard as I can to protect you, and myself too. And since I am not a police officer, I can't arrest them next time I see it, but I can remind you--and with great pride since I have fun with my bravado--THERE IS A REASON THEY STOPPED AND SHOUTED, "KENYA'S HERE!" AND WONDERED WHAT TO DO--ALTHOUGH SOMEONE MAY HAVE GIVEN ME A LIQUID-GAS ON A CLOTH NEAR MY NOSE TO CAUSE MY LOSS OF CONSCIOUSNESS WHEN YOU WERE BEING ABUSED. UNLESS MY NEUROLOGICAL DEFECT WAS ACTIVATED, WHICH WAS NOT THE CASE SINCE I DID NOT KNOW IT WAS YOU. Where are these women getting liquid-gasses to bring with them to the dyke bar? And why would liquid-gas be appropriate in a social situation??? I respond with poise most times, but I am dead serious here. Okay? Recently on youtube.com I viewed Aileen Wuornos announcing in the third person, "Execute Aileen Wuornos. Aileen Wuornos will kill again." The publishing date might have been 2011. She looked older than she looked when she was supposed to have been originally executed. Please be okay. Please enjoy and always be alright. I do not need a worse nightmare than the realization that I may have to write-off most of the people I have ever met (excluding some always-perfect relatives, of course, but that doesn't count.) I am starting school before the next week. Yes, and I look forward to doing really well in my courses… I hope you are okay. And I hope Amber Tyler Chase, who seems to love and adore you so deeply (in addition to her beloved Universe, Lisette). And I hope I get to kiss you again; maybe in June. I can’t wait to get some work done! Truly Always, Kenya Delloway P.S. I think I may remember a past life, with you, Lily…In the early 1900s. I must apologize if…Oliver (me)…drank liquor and may have beat his wife. Uh, yikes…: “Remember to never forget!”
I have just watched GrandMa. I did not know who you were but was left so amazed by your performance that I had to google you. What an amazing actress you are! Thank you for all the giggles you gave me tonight. Precious moment of lightness and happiness. Best wishes with your live shows. When are you coming to Paris?
Hi, I am a high school teacher and I have a student wanting to perform part of "Trudy" for a high school speech festival. It is a nonprofit performing arts event for teens and would involve 3-4 performances. There is no audio/video recording allowed and the title/author's name is clearly stated at the beginning of the presentation. What do I need to do to obtain permission to perform this piece?

Lily: This is silly that I am writing to you but thank you so much for Grace and Frankie. It is truly unexpected. Your wonderful performances aside, I am truly moved and feel blessed to live in a world that allows all things to be as they are. Season 1, "The Invitation" episode, touched me so deeply. Thank you and thank you.
Hi Lily and Jane, I'm an English actress and character comedian living in London. You have both been such an influence on my work so I decided I am coming over to see Lily's show in Long Beach in March and then enjoy a California road trip. I'm trying to find a reliable address to write to you before I arrive - is it possible please for someone to pass one on? I can't wait for the show. Thanks so much, Rachel
