Award-winning actress, author, teen mentor, talk-show host, comedienne and public speaker, Lydia Cornell grew up in America’s living rooms. An international celebrity best known for her starring role as the daughter of TV legend Ted Knight in the hit ABC series Too Close for Comfort, Cornell was one of the most popular sex symbols of the '80s, playing virginal blonde bombshell cheerleader Sara Rush. The series airs daily on Tribune Broadcasting’s new channel Antenna TV.

This year Cornell has worked with the Red Cross, firefighters, Autism Awareness, and High Hopes, Pat Boone’s charity for traumatic spinal cord injury. She recently hosted a documentary for Safe Passage Home, an organization that gives extreme life makeovers to victims of domestic violence, for viewing on the Oxygen Network. Last fall she housed domestic abuse victims and cared for their children throughout the school year. With the help of the police, Cornell helped rescue a battered woman from a predator.

Cornell has just recorded a PSA for the 14th annual Eric Marienthal and Friends Concert to be held at the Hyatt Regency in Newport Beach this Sunday, July 22nd. The night includes a VIP, pre-concert dinner with Marienthal and the evening's special guest performers, a live and silent auction, and complimentary hors d'oeuvres. Over the last 14 years this event has raised over $500,000 for the many brain-injured adults who attend High Hopes.

Best Actress nominee for AFI and Method Fest, People's Choice Award winner, and star of over 250 TV shows and films and episodes worldwide, Cornell was recently on HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm; The Kelsey Grammer Comedy Hour; Variety’s Power of Comedy honoring Russell Brand; and movies with Robert Downey, Jr., Steven Tyler, Jon Bon Jovi, and The Mentalist’s Amanda Rhigetti.

Cornell continues to pursue a path of comedic gold, doing stand-up and writing often pointedly hilarious political barbs on her acclaimed and sometimes controversial blog.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
