I haven't been following this line of discussion until now, so I risk providing some redundant information here: Lily Tomlin appears alone, albeit as an ensemble of characters, in both the stage and screen versions of *The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe* (stage version, 1980s; film, 1991); and Sandra Bernhardt performs a one-woman show in the film *Without You I'm Nothing* (1990, which I believe also originated as simply a stage act), though the emphasis on the announcer and the audience members (not to mention the band) might undermine its status as a record of a solo performance. At least another of Tomlin's one-woman shows, an HBO special from the late 1970s that recorded a stage performance, was at one point, and perhaps still is, available on video. Also, a number of solo performances by contemporary female comics often appear on U.S. cable television, Janeane Garofolo's HBO special being a prominent recent example, and are often later released on video.
