Review: Vicki!: The True-Life Adventures of Miss Fireball

User Review  - Amy Dingman rush - Goodreads

Although Vicki didn't have as colorful a childhood as Carol Burnett (which I'm sure she was thankful for), it wasn't an easy one. This autobiography is interesting as it not only gives readers a glimpse into Vicki's life, but also into The Carol Burnett Show and beyond. Read full review

Review: Vicki!: The True-Life Adventures of Miss Fireball

User Review  - Dale Stonehouse - Goodreads

Her writing is every bit as funny as her comedy roles, and not taking life too seriously is a gift to be admired. Anyone who liked her acting will love this book; an added bonus is the story of her number-one pop music hit "The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia." Read full review
