Vicki Lawrence, Celebrity Actress, Talk Show Host, Speaker

 

Vicki Lawrence


 

Multi-talented Vicki Lawrence was born in Inglewood, California, where she excelled in dancing and singing, was a cheerleader and was voted "Most Likely To Succeed" by her graduating class.

From 1965 to 1967, Vicki sang with the Young Americans musical group and also appeared in the feature film, "The Young Americans," which won an Academy Award for Best Documentary.

During her senior year of high school, Vicki sent Carol Burnett a letter, which included a local newspaper article mentioning their resemblance. Vicki invited Ms. Burnett to the local fire department's "Miss Fireball Contest" in which she was performing. Ms. Burnett, looking for an actress to play her kid sister on her new variety series, contacted Vicki and made arrangements to come to the event. The rest is television history. "The Carol Burnett Show" premiered in the Fall of 1967, the same year Vicki entered UCLA to study Theatre Arts. She spent 11 years with Carol, earning one Emmy Award and five Emmy nominations.

In 1968, Vicki went to Vietnam to visit U.S. troops with Johnny Grant. As a recording artist, Vicki received a Gold record in 1973 for her international hit single, "The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia."

After the Burnett show ended, Vicki Lawrence went on to star in her own series, "Mama's Family," with Ken Berry, Dorothy Lyman, Beverly Archer and Allan Kayser. The last original episode was done in January of 1990, completing five years of first-run syndication. The show can still be seen daily throughout most of the country.

Her efforts to protect women's rights were recognized in 1988, when Vicki was the first woman to be honored as "Person of the Year," an award given yearly by the Coalition of Labor Union Women. Shortly thereafter, Vicki became one of the few successful female game show hosts when she took on the daytime network version of "Win, Lose or Draw."

From 1992 to 1994 Vicki further perfected her hosting skills on her own daytime talk show appropriately called "Vicki!". She received critical acclaim when she was the only talk show host since Oprah to be nominated for a Daytime Emmy in her freshman year. In the fall of 1997, she briefly returned to daytime talk as the host of "FOX after Breakfast" from New York City.

On stage, Vicki has appeared in numerous productions, including "Carousel," "Send Me No Flowers," "No, No Nanette," "My Fat Friend," "Chapter Two," "Twigs," "Hello Dolly," "Special Occasions," "I'm Getting My Act Together and Taking It On The Road," "Annie Get Your Gun" and live from the Grand Ole Opry, "Nunsense 3: The Jamboree," which aired on TNN.

Vicki Lawrence travels all over the country speaking to women's organizations about her life and career, women's health and being a woman in a man's world. All the while, she approaches everything with her characteristic sense of humor, reminding us all that "Life is much too serious to be taken seriously!" In 1995 Simon and Schuster published her story. Her autobiography is entitled "VICKI! The True Life Adventures of Miss Fireball."

Vicki can be seen daily as a regular on the syndicated new "Match Game." She was also invited to join The Board of Trustees for Miller Children's Hospital at Long Beach Memorial Medical Center. (One of only eight children's hospitals in the state, Miller Children's Hospital was dedicated in 1970 as a community, nonprofit hospital and now services patients within a 100 mile radius in Los Angeles and Orange Counties.) Vicki devotes much of her spare time working on their behalf.

What others say --

  • "I have had a love affair with your show 'Mama's Family' since I first discovered it in syndication 4 years ago. It cleverly pokes fun at small town life with great wit and wonderful acting. I still watch in amazement the transformation you make as her! Also, I think we all love Mama because she gets to say the things in life we wish we could say – and get away with it. Plus, I love watching her challenge herself and her family. I'll bet she has become an inspiration to a lot of people. Amazing how a show many considered fluff to still be around in syndication. For me, it's truly a treasure: wonderful acting, writing and a RAY of sunshine in my life.

    Thank you, Vicki, for your great contribution to The Carol Burnett Show and for bringing 'Mama' home to all of your loving fans. You are a true talent and I hope your star continues to shine." - G.R.
