Lily Tomlin Was an Expert Alibi Artist in High School

Here’s a clip from Lily Tomlin and Seth MacFarlane’s visit to last night’s Late Late Show, where James Corden shows Tomlin’s “Most Popular” photo from her high school yearbook, which leads to Tomlin revealing that she was so good at lying her way out of school that it earned her a very special nickname: “I kind of had a nickname of The Alibi Artist, because out of three years in high school, I was cumulatively absent one year.” So take it from Tomlin, kids: Be a great liar and skip all the classes you want, and you too might grow up to be a Hollywood star and comedy legend.
