he New York Times opines, comedian Taylor Tomlinson “demonstrates tight joke writing, carefully honed act-outs and a ruthless appetite for laughs” in her second hour-long special, Look At You, now streaming on Netflix. New York Magazine adds, “Watching Tomlinson gives you the same comfort as a Swift concert or a Broadway show that’s been on for years. This is a professional. This performance will be ultra-produced. You do not need to be anxious,” and the Los Angeles Times observes, “Even when she’s navigating painful waters, she can’t help but find the humor… her wit and pinpoint delivery reveal both an incisive writer and also a talented actor.” resented By: Peace Center Dates: March 30, 2023 - March 31, 2023 Recurrence: Recurring daily Location: Peace Center Address: 300 S Main St, Greenville, SC 29601 Phone: (864) 467-3000 Time: 7 PM Price: $29.75-$69.75
