Happy 75th Birthday Lily Tomlin!

Happy 75th Birthday Lily Tomlin!

Today is the glorious Lily Tomlin’s 75th birthday, and in celebration we thought we’d offer up this amazing clip of Tomlin in character as her "Laugh In" alter-ego Ernestine The Telephone Operator on a 1984 episode of "The Tonight Show" hosted by none other than Joan Rivers, who has been in our hearts all weekend as we hope she pulls through her health concerns.

Happy birthday, Lily, and get well Joan! You made a mighty duo then, and you certainly still do today.
