Comedy on the Crush Pad: Beautiful views, great wine and big laughs!
Vicki Barbolak was a fan favorite and top 10 finalist on Season 13 of NBC’s America's Got Talent 2018. Howie Mandel told Vicki and America, “I think you just came up with your own sitcom, you’re wonderful I love you.” And Simon Cowell said, “I think you’re the best comedian we’ve had on this show.” Vicki was also featured on the 2019 AGT Champions show and Britain's Got Talent Champions.
When Vicki was 38 years young, she saw an ad for a stand-up comedy class. The class changed her life. She quickly realized that making people laugh gave her more happiness than she ever dreamed possible. After a few years of open mic nights, Vicki was taken under the wing of Mitzi Shore, owner of The Comedy Store where Vicki developed as a Comedian. E! Entertainment, on its True Hollywood Story of the Comedy Store and its owner, Mitzi Shore, predicted Vicki would be the next “breakout star” to come out of that famed institution.
Vicki reflects on her roller-coaster life of working in a family carpet business owned by her dad, a former Pittsburgh Steeler, duels with ex-husbands who think alimony is an Italian ice cream flavor and raising two great kids all while living in the ultra-posh Vista Manor Trailer Park near San Diego. Vicki has created a comic persona that has earned her well-deserved praise. She is considered unique both in the character she has created ,as well as the fresh material she consistently delivers.
In 2007 Vicki won Nickelodeon’s America’s Funniest Mom show hosted by Roseanne Barr. Roseanne was so impressed that she hired Vicki as one of her writers and requested that Vicki open for her at the New York New York Casino in Las Vegas. In addition to being crowned as America’s Funniest Mom, Talent Coordinators Mark Ross and Bob Reid of The Jay Leno Show selected Vicki for the 2010 Jay Leno Laugh Squad. Family Circle Magazine’s September 2011 issue profiles Vicki as an Expert in Joke Telling for their feature article, “How to Do Anything Better”. Vicki’s true story about performing stand-up at a funeral was included in Mark Schiff and Rich Snyder’s best selling book, I Killed, Road Stories from America’s Top Comics.
Vicki was one of six comediennes winning a nationwide search for “Jenny’s Comedy Diva’s” on the Jenny Jones Show. She was also the first winner of the California’s Funniest Female Contest. Vicki sells out shows everywhere she goes!
