Tomlin – LilyGRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Lily Tomlin will bring her one-woman show, An Evening of Classic Lily Tomlin, to West Michigan on March 10, 2014, as part of LaughFest.

LaughFest runs March 6 – 16 next year as a fund-raiser and awareness project of Gilda’s Club of Grand Rapids.

The performance is a partnership between LaughFest and Broadway Grand Rapids, which is known for bringing in high quality national stage tours, including Broadway musicals.

Tomlin became a household name on the classic comedy series “Laugh-In” back in the 60s and 70s, but since then her television, movie, and live performance career established her as an award-winning comedienne.

A Detroit native, Tomlin studied drama at Wayne State University. However, she has never performed in Grand Rapids.

Gilda’s Club of Grand Rapids provides support for cancer patients and survivors.
