I thought her political humor was inappropriate, given that this is a red state. It was not funny, like Jay Leno, it was critical. We thought the rest of her act was a waste of our time. Her Act was not funny at all - it was silly! I do not...continued

I enjoyed the show although I thought it was a little heavy on political statements . . .

She was great and very funny. Learned a lot about her from some of the comments and skits she performed.

She was great, especially considering her age. We had a great time, and it looked like everyone else did, too.

I'm a great fan of Lily and attended the Houston show at Jones Hall. Lily's one talented woman, and the show was entertaining, the large theater was nearly full, and I'm glad I saw her for the first time; but when the show was over I was ready to...continued

What a outstanding comic event. Complete with goofs, prompts, hecklers, and old & new material!

Performance was poor. I guess she needs the money. Wanted to leave before it was over.

I seemd to get the impression that she wasn't too thrilled being in Houston. That maybe she was asked to tone down her act for the Houston audience and wasn't thrilled about that.

I was not sure what to expect, but Lily put on quite a good show. She was rapid fire moving from one skit to another and provided a plethora of laughs along the way. I'm so glad I went.

Lily's show was a one woman show. She was versitle, cleaver and as funny now as in years past. She held our attention and gave a 2 hour performance.

Performance was somewhat disappointing. I believe in "know your audience" and some of the remarks in a red state venue could have been left out.
Had some good laughs and that made it all worthwhile. Laughter is the best medicine.

With the wealth of experiences and characters Ms. Tomlin has to draw from, we were expecting jokes, stories and sketches that would make us laugh and reflect on life. Unfortunately, we only chuckled a couple of times, and nodded in remembrance of...continued

We really enjoyed Lillie's show. We had not seen her for many years. She is as energetic as ever. A two hour monologue with no intermission is quite a performance . Her new material is just as wonderful as her old stuff. I did love hearing...continued

She was amazing. So funny and she does not stay still on stage. This was a Christmas present for my mom (and a lil for me). We had a great time.

The concert was great. The seats however were another story. Bought over 2 months in advance so I do not recommend this site to anyone. Pay the full price or get bad seats. My seats were in the "nose bleed" section
