In 2001, following the unprecedented ratings for the "Carol Burnett Showstopper Special," which delighted more than 50 million viewers, Ms. Lawrence decided that the time is right to take Mama out of the closet, dust off her sensible shoes and hit the road with her new touring production, Vicki Lawrence and Mama: A Two-Woman Show.
Ms. Lawrence takes the stage first. "My show is not a retrospective," she explains. It is a mixture of stand-up comedy, music, and my observations about real life." The multi-talented entertainer is mostly known for her acting and comedic talents, but she also earned a gold record for the 1973 hit, "The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia."
"I think people will get a kick out of the things Mama has an opinion about. We're creating new material with a more modern and cutting edge. Where Mama is concerned, expect the unexpected. There's nothing she can't do," she says. "I hope people will be pleasantly surprised by the side of Vicki they may never have seen.…I know they will be looking forward to Mama, and for her part, that crazy old gal will be up to the challenge."
You will love Vicki and Mama!
