And That's The Truth is a 1972 comedy album by Lily Tomlin released on Polydor Records. Tomlin recorded the album live before an audience at The Ice House in Pasadena, California.
The album features Tomlin as one of her most celebrated characters, five-and-a-half-year old Edith Ann, who hounds a new neighbor (also played by Tomlin) with her little dramas real and imagined, as well as sage advice and tales of her family's private life.
The album was Tomlin's second record release, following her Grammywinning This Is A Recording. And That's The Truth earned Tomlin a second Grammy nomination as Best Comedy Recording and peaked at #41 on the Billboard Hot 200 album chart, the third highest ranking album ever on the chart by a comedienne, behind Tomlin's debut album and Joan Rivers's 1983 "What Becomes A Semi-Legend Most" (which peaked at #23).
The album was produced by Irene M. Pinn and conceived and written by Lily Tomlin and Jane Wagner with additional material by Jim Abell & Chet Dowling, Betty Beaird, Marian Brayton, Warren Burton, Susan Perkis Haven, Edward Morris, Richard Tomlin, and Bill Weeden & David Finkle.
Mary Jean "Lily" Tomlin (born September 1, 1939) is an American actress, comedienne, writer, and producer. Tomlin has been a major force in American comedy since the late 1960s when she began a career as a stand up comedian and became a featured performer on television's Laugh-in. Her career has spanned television, comedy recordings, Broadway, and motion pictures, enjoying acclaimed success in each medium. She has won many awards including Tony Awards, Emmy Awards, and a Grammy Award and has also been nominated for an Academy Award. Tomlin's humor is often sharp and insightful in the traditions of standup comedians, but also frequently endearing, slightly wacky, and generally quite "family friendly" in the tradition of television comediennes such as Lucille Ball, Carol Burnett, and Eve Arden.
