Lily Tomlin Came To Chico

LilytomlinWe saw Lily Tomlin at CSU Chico last night.  The tickets were pricey - $50, and seniors didn't get a discount.

I'm glad we went.  She's terrific - so funny.  She was on stage for a little over an hour and a half, counting the encore, and took no breaks.  Her politics are left leaning (fine by me), but her characters are funny to everybody.

My favorite character is Trudy, the crazy street woman.  "I
refuse to be intimidated by reality anymore. After all, what is reality anyway?
Nothin' but a collective hunch. I made some studies: Reality is the leading
cause of stress amongst those in touch with it.

Ms. Tomlin started out with some witty chat about Chico.  "Do you have to be dyslexic to get a driver's license in Chico?"

There were so many lines that I heard during the show and thought, "I'll remember that one."  Of course, the one-liners were gone from my head before we were even out of the theater.  Her web site has a quotes page that has some of the things we heard during the show.

If you have a chance to see her, I recommend the experience.
