Lily Tomlin is one of America's foremost comediennes who continues to successfully venture across an ever-widening range of media, extending an extraordinary entertainment career that spans many years.
Lily Tomlin, of course, has starred in motion pictures, television, animation, theater and video.
Lily Tomlin co-stared in the Franco Zeffirelli film "Tea With Mussolini," with Maggie Smith, Judi Dench, Joan Plowright and Cher.php"> Cher. She also guest starred on the popular series, "X-Files" and continues to be the voice of the science teacher Ms. Frizzle on the popular children's animated series, "The Magic School Bus," for which she was awarded an Emmy.
In 1998, Lily Tomlin wrapped her second season, as the boss of FYI, on the last season of the hit CBS series, "Murphy Brown." She also received an Emmy nomination for her critically acclaimed appearance on the NBC drama "Homicide."
Lily Tomlin was born in Detroit, Michigan, and grew up in a working-class neighborhood on the outskirts of one of the city's most affluent areas. Although she claims that she wasn't funny as a child, Lily Tomlin admits she "knew who was and lifted all their material right off the TV screen." Her favorites include Lucille Ball, Bea Lillie, Imogene Coca and Jean Carroll, one of the first female stand-ups on "The Ed Sullivan Show."
After high school, Lily Tomlin enrolled at Wayne State University to study medicine, but her elective courses in theater arts propelled her to leave to become a performer in local coffee houses. She moved to New York in 1965, where she soon built a strong following with her appearances at such landmark clubs as The Improvisation, Upstairs at the Downstairs and Cafe Au Go Go. In 1966, she made her television debut on "The Garry Moore Show," and in 1969 opened for the legendary Mabel Mercer in the Downstairs Room at the Upstairs at the Downstairs. She then made several memorable appearances on "The Merv Griffin Show," which lead to a move to California where she appeared on "Music Scene." In December 1969, Tomlin joined the cast of the top-rated "Laugh-In" and overnight rose to national prominence with her characterizations of Ernestine, the sassy telephone operator, and Edith Ann, the devilish five-and-a-half-year-old. When "Laugh-In" left the air, Tomlin went on to co-write and star in four comedy specials: "The Lily Tomlin Show" (1973), "Lily" (1973), "Lily" (1974) and "Lily Tomlin" (1975) for which she won three Emmy Awards and a Writers Guild of America Award.
Lily Tomlin's comedy recording debut, "This is a Recording," won a Grammy in 1971 and her subsequent albums "Modern Scream," "And That's the Truth" and "On Stage," were nominated for Grammys. In 1977, Tomlin made her Broadway debut in "Appearing Nitely," written and directed by Jane Wagner. In addition to such favorites as Ernestine, Edith Ann and Judith Beasley, the Calumet City housewife, "Appearing Nitely" introduced Trudy, the bag lady Crystal, the hang-gliding quadriplegic; Rick, the singles bar cruiser; Glenna, a child of the sixties; and Sister Boogie Woman, a 77-year-old blues revivalist. "Appearing Nitely" was later adapted as both an album and an HBO Special.
The team of Lily Tomlin and Wagner went on to produce a pair of TV Specials, the Emmy-winning "Lily: Sold Out" (1981) and "Lily for President?" (1982).
Lily Tomlin made her film debut as Linnea, a gospel singer and mother of two deaf children in Robert Altman's "Nashville" (1975). Her memorable performance was nominated for an Academy Award and both the New York Film Critics and National Society of Film Critics voted Tomlin Best Supporting Actress. She next starred opposite Art Carney as a would-be actress living on the fringes of Hollywood in Robert Benton's "The Late Show" (1977). She went on to star with John Travolta as a lonely housewife in "Moment By Moment" (1978); then teamed with Jane Fonda and Dolly Parton in the late Colin Higgins' comedy "9 to 5" (1980).
Lily Tomlin starred as the happy homemaker who became "The Incredible Shrinking Woman" (1981), directed by Joel Schumacher from a screenplay by Jane Wagner; and the eccentric rich woman whose soul invades Steve Martin's body in Carl Reiner's popular "All of Me" (1984).
She teamed with Bette Midler in "Big Business" (1988); starred in the film adaptation and received a CableAce Award for Executive Producing "The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life In the Universe" (1991) appeared as part of an ensemble cast in Woody Allen's "Shadows and Fog" (1992); starred opposite Tom Waits in Robert Altman's "Short Cuts" (1993); portrayed Miss Jane Hathaway in the screen adaptation of the popular television series "The Beverly Hillbillies" (1993).
