There were funny moments and nostalgic videos but the hour and a half series of monologues presented by Miss Tomlin fell short of her past TV and screen performances. Maybe a straight man/woman or a better setting than a small background screen and a set of steps might have helped.
Lily Tomlin, one of America’s foremost comedians, continues to venture across an ever-widening range of media, starring in television, theater, motion pictures, animation, and video.
Throughout her extraordinary entertainment career, Tomlin has received numerous awards, including six Emmys; a Tony for her one woman Broadway show, Appearing Nitely; a second Tony as Best Actress, Drama Desk Award and Outer Critics’ Circle Award for her one woman performance in Jane Wagner’s The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe_; a CableAce Award for Executive Producing the film adaptation of The Search_; a Grammy for her comedy album, This is a Recording as well as nominations for her subsequent albums Modern Scream, And That’s the Truth_, and On Stage_; and two Peabody Awards—the first for the ABC television special, Edith Ann’s Christmas: Just Say Noël and the second for narrating and executive producing the HBO film, The Celluloid Closet.
