We have a winner for the two Lily Tomlin tickets, courtesy of the Houston Press and Society for the Performing Arts. Congratulations, Jorge C! Everyone else, thanks for your entry and keep reading Art Attack, more giveaways are coming up soon.
Snag a couple of tickets to comedian/actor/writer/producer Lily Tomlin's upcoming one-person show. Art Attack and our friends over at Society for the Performing Arts have two tickets to give away to a lucky reader. (More on how to enter in a minute.)
After 50 years in show business and multiple Emmys, Tony Awards and an Oscar nomination to her credit, Tomlin shows no signs of slowing down. She's just finished filming Admission with Tina Fey and Paul Rudd and currently stars in the television series Malibu Country with Reba McEntire and Web Therapy with Lisa Kudrow.
On February 9, Tomlin takes over Jones Hall with a show that features her signature characters, among them Ernestine, a condescending telephone operator with a snort for a laugh, and Edith Ann, a five-and-a-half-year-old philosopher. (We're hoping she includes Pervis Hawkins, a black male R&B singer modeled after singer Luther Vandross.)
To enter our ticket give-away, send an e-mail with "Lily Tomlin" in the subject line to Olivia.Alvarez@HoustonPress.com before Friday at 3 p.m. We'll notify the winners by e-mail that afternoon. Lily Tomlin performs at 8 p.m. on Saturday, February 9 at Jones Hall for the Performing Arts, 615 Louisiana. For information, call 713-227-4772 or visit www.spahouston.org.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
