Emmy Award- winning comedienne Vicki Lawrence is one of the most beloved television personalities of her generation. Plucked out of total obscurity as a high school senior, Vicki went on to become part of the now-legendary cast of the «Carol Burnett Show».

In the seventh season, and hundreds of hilarious sketches later, at the ripe, old age of 24, Vicki created her most endearing character to date, Thelma Harper, or «Mama» as she is better known to her fans. After the Burnett Show, Vicki went on to star in «Mama's Family,» which consistently topped the ratings for its entire six-year run of original shows. «Mama» has attained almost a cult status among her legions of loyal television viewers.

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 really nothing she can't do,» she says. «I hope people will be pleasantly surprised by a 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.»
