Biography

American actress and comedienne, best known on "The Carol Burnett Show" where she was a regular 1967-79, followed by "Mama's Family" in 1983. She won an Emmy as Best Supporting Actress in a Variety Show in 1976. As Burnett's young look-alike and side-kick, she wore a gray wig and padding to play feisty Mama for 135 episodes. In the '90s, the lithe and bubbly redhead was host of "Vicki!" a weekday talk show.

The daughter of a Inglewood, CA accountant and a homemaker, Lawrence sang with the Young Americans at 15, going on tour and appearing on TV in the mid-'60s. After a reporter wrote a piece in which he referred to her resemblance to Burnett, she was invited to audition for the role of Burnett's younger sister. She got the part on the hit TV series, age 18 with no acting training and shaped up into a first-rate comedy talent.

In 1974 Lawrence married Al Schultz, Burnett's makeup man and they had two kids, Courtney and Garrett. A first marriage at 22 to songwriter Bobby Russell lasted less than a year. Schultz became her full-time manager. In 1979, after the Burnett Show concluded, they moved to Maui but were drawn back to tinsel town within a year.
