Lily Tomlin’s LaughFest/Broadway Grand Rapids Show Tickets on Sale for General Public Friday

Lily Tomlin

Lily Tomlin, a Michigan native, is one of the nation’s foremost comediennes, with an extraordinarily broad entertainment career spanning television, movies, theater, animation and stand-up comedy.

She never before appeared in Grand Rapids, but will in Broadway Grand Rapids’ LaughFest performance on March 10.

The Detroit-born Tomlin is a graduate of Cass Tech and started in theater at Wayne State University. She subsequently became a national hit on the iconic “Rowan & Martin’s Laugh In” television show with her comedic portrayals of Ernestine, the condescending telephone operator, and Edith Ann, the precocious 6-year-old.

That success led to many movie roles, including “Nashville,” “9 to 5″ and last year, “Admission.” She’s been on prime time television hits like “Murphy Brown,” “The West Wing,” “Will and Grace” and “The Simpsons.”

Tomlin has earned seven Emmys for various broadcast roles, a Grammy for one of her comedy albums, and a pair of Tonys, one for best actress for her one-woman Broadway show, “The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe.” Her humor and observations are penetrating, funny and endearing — and that’s the truth!

This Friday, Jan. 10, general public tickets go on sale for Tomlin’s LaughFest performance.
