Next Week, Lily Tomlin's Playing the Improv. Probably Going to Zoo Too.
Good Lord, it's been ages (before the Great Depression of '08!) since we've mentioned Jenny the Elephant, who the Dallas Zoo decided back in August to keep here rather than ship off to Mexico or Tennessee. But that hasn't stopped the Concerned Citizens for Jenny from trying to convince the city to send Jenny to the Elephant Sanctuary -- and it hasn't stopped Lily Tomlin neither. She's keeping her word to come to Dallas after all: One week from tonight, matter of fact, Tomlin will be at the Addison Improv for a meet-and-greet fund-raiser and performance.
I think tix are somewhere between $60 and $100, but it's hard to tell. Then again, Concerned Citizens also misspells Tomlin's name as "Lilly," which they might oughta fix. Because you know what she's capable of. A classic stand-up bit after the jump. --Robert Wilonsky
