Burbank- Lily Tomlin, one of America’s foremost comediennes, was honored as recipient of the 2007 Julius Shulman Communication Award at ceremonies held at the Woodbury University Library, November 11, 2007. The versatile comedienne’s remarkable career has spanned 37 years, with stage shows, comedy albums, TV specials and the 1985 Tony-award winning The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe.
The award was presented at ‘An Evening with Lily Tomlin’, in which the comedienne and photographer, Julius Shulman exchanged remarks to an appreciative crowd in the university’s jam-packed library. (The pair met earlier this year at the Elevado de Castillo in Silver Lake.). In attendance were Lily’s long-time partner and collaborator Jane Wagner, Artist Patricia Callicott (friend of Lily’s who introduced the pair); Filmmaker Eric Bricker (whose film, ‘Visual Acoustics’ documents the life and times of Julius Shulman, to be released this year); and Designers Maria Dallman and Carol Soucek-King.
