Vicki Lawrence and Mama
Emmy Award- winning comedienne “Vicki Lawrence”, one of the most beloved television personalities of her generation, is back in Branson for 2017 in “Vicki Lawrence and Mama”!
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 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.
In 2001 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 a touring production. 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."
“Mama” takes over the second half of the show and if you thought she was a riot on tv, you are in for a real treat when you see her in person on May 14, 2017. Take your mama and see “Vicki Lawrence” on Mother’s Day!
