'VICKI!' DOES VEGAS WITH FIVE GLAMOUR-PACKED SHOWS FROM THE DESERT INN

    LOS ANGELES, Feb. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- For the first time since premiering in August 1992, Vicki Lawrence takes her nationally syndicated talk/entertainment series "Vicki!" on the road for a star- studded week from the Las Vegas Desert Inn, airing Monday, March 1.
    "We came to Las Vegas because it's fun," says Lawrence.  "It's close enough to our home-base in Burbank that we were able to talk our bosses into a field trip."
    Taped in front of standing-room-only crowds in excess of 1,500 in the Desert Inn's Crystal Room, the week is a celebration of Las Vegas, style, glitz and glamour, featuring top headliners such as Don Rickles, Rich Little, Siegfried and Roy, and Jack Jones.
    In addition, Vicki meets a wide range of celebrity impersonators who re-create performances by everyone from Michael Jackson and Liberace to Dolly Parton and Neil Diamond.  An entire program is dedicated to the memory of Elvis Presley, featuring Presley look-a- likes from age six upward.
    Other celebrities joining Vicki during the week are comedian Jimmy Walker, Sheryl Lee Ralph of "Designing Women," singer Buddy Greco and Phyllis McGuire.
    "Vicki!," currently airing in 158 markets, was recently renewed for its second year.
    "Vicki!" is distributed by Group W Productions.
