Two-Minute Nostalgia Sublime: Lily Tomlin at the Tony Awards

Lily Tomlin performs material from her one-woman Broadway show, Appearing Nitely, at the Tony Awards.

The YouTube clip says that this is from the 1979 awards, but Tomlin won her special Tony award for lifetime achievement in 1977. It appears that this is her acceptance bit from that 1977 award; please correct me if I'm wrong!

If this clip only makes you hungry for more Lily, revisit One Ringy-Dingy and Bobbie-Jeanine the cocktail lounge organist.
