How Vicki Became a Comedian
When she was 38 years old, Vicki came across an advertisement for a stand-up comedy class—and signing up for that class changed her life for the better! After attending the class, Vicki realized that she simply loves to make people laugh and entertain them.
After several years of open mic nights, Vicki worked with Mitzi Shore, the owner of “The Comedy Store,” where she worked on her skills as a comedian.
It has been 20 years since then and Vicki has made some real accomplishments in the world of comedy. She was even named as a member of Jay Leno’s NBC Laugh Squad. She was also awarded as Funniest Mom in America on Nick @ Nite.
Most of her comedy skits focus on her life as a mother, her several marriages, and also her love for the Southern California Trailer Park Lifestyle.
Besides being a comedian, Vicki now can also officiate at weddings! Because of her successful work in the comdey field, Vicki was the first person to win California’s Funniest Female Contest in 2004.

When she arrived for the auditions on AGT, she jokingly told the judges that she was a ballerina. The judges were so impressed with her stand-up routine that all of them voted “yes” for her, and she immediately progresses to the next round.
For her Judge Cuts performance, Vicki talked about her stage outfit and normal observations she’s made about her daughter. All the judges, including guest judge Olivia Munn, gave her a standing ovation! Her performance was so great that she had all the judges in stitches! After a resounding “yes” from all judges, she moved on to the Quarterfinals.
Throughout her performances, Vicki also received a standing ovation from the judges (which is no easy feat). Due to the public vote, Vicki is now in the finals, vying to take home that million dollar grand prize! Who knows, maybe she will be the winner of season 13 of AGT!
She’s the Mother of Two Beautiful Daughters
As for the comedian’s personal life? In 2011, Vicki was married to a guy named Lou Barbolak but as she’s mentioned in her routine, she has a couple of ex-husbands so it is unclear if they are still together. According to reports, she has two daughters. Her daughter Lily Gross attended Colorado School of Public Health and currently works at Harvard University School of Public Health as an Undergraduate Researcher.
Her other daughter is named Emily Chandler. She lives in Oceanside, California and attended California State University, San Marcos to study Human Development (psychology).
Emily has been married to Timothy Chandler for 14 years now. He is a retired Marine who is currently studying Global Supply Chain Management at California State University San Marcos. It looks like Emily and Timothy now have three sons together, making Vicki a grandma!
According to her social media accounts, Vicki also has a step-daughter named Mary Bartlett who attended Eastern Kentucky University Honors Program.
Could this hilarious wife, mother, and grandma extraordinaire be the next winner of America’s Got Talent? Tune in to the finals this week to find out!
