Lily Tomlin and Coco Peru share an extraordinary conversation at LA Gay & Lesbian Center event


It was one of those nights so special that anyone who was there, will never forgot it. Thank God I was one of those folks in the audience last night for Coco Peru’s In Conversation with Lily Tomlin held, appropriately, at the Lily Tomlin Jane Wagner Cultural Arts Center.

“My head is about to explode,” an excited Coco said before bringing Lily onstage for close to three hours of stories and clips from the great star’s 45-year career on television, in movies and on stage.

Jane Wagner, Lily’s personal and professional partner of nearly 40 years, was in the front row of the packed theater and as the evening progressed, you realize just how crucial she has been to this brilliant career that has resulted in eight Emmys, two Tonys, a Grammy and an Oscar nomination among many other accolades.

“I fell madly in love with her as I laid eyes on her,” Lily said of Jane. “So that was that.” Tomlin is just a genius and that is obvious just in her storytelling about her various movies and TV specials and about her family including her brother who once sawed the family’s sofa into three pieces so they could have a sectional. But he was never punished because he and Lily “dominated the home.”
