Diane Vincent

Hello there! I am an actress, singer, comedienne, tap dancer and ‘Lucy” impersonator. I look forward to the day when vaudeville comes back. Meanwhile, I am so delighted to play among so many talented artists at MTG!

About Diane

DIANE VINCENT is licensed and authorized by CBS Worldwide and Desilu, too, LLC to portray “Lucy Ricardo” at Universal Studios Hollywood and throughout the world. She appears annually as the “Official Lucy Impersonator” at the LUCILLE BALL COMEDY FESTIVAL in Jamestown, NY (Lucy’s hometown). When not portraying the “Queen of Comedy”, she stays busy as an award winning musical theatre actress. Along with her multi- talented husband Sam Kriger, she co-wrote and starred in “NUTTIN’ BUT HUTTON”, their critically acclaimed award winning musical tribute to Betty Hutton which enjoyed a successful run in Los Angeles. As a Southern California gal and proud member of Actors Equity, Diane has performed featured and leading roles at The Hollywood Bowl, The Pasadena Playhouse, Sacramento Music Circus, McCoy-Rigby, Reprise, The Falcon, The Norris, 3-D Theatricals, and countless CLO’s (remember Civic Light Opera?). Diane credits her insanely talented parents for passing down the musical comedy gene. Her mother, Betty Vincent, was a professional music director/pianist/vocalist and her character actor father and funny man Larry Vincent was the legendary horror film host “Seymour” of TV’s “Fright Night” back in the 1970’s. Just a few months before the pandemic hit, Diane and multi talented musical director/husband Sam Kriger played to a sold-out crowd at Feinstein’s At Vitello’s in Studio City. In an effort to stay creative during the pandemic, Diane and Sam wrote and performed 19 original parodies. Their biggest hit, “Baby It’s Covid, Outside”, received nearly 8 million views on Facebook. (YouTube “Play It Again, Sam & Diane: Pandemic PAIRodies”).

Funniest / Most Memorable Thing That's Happened to Me on Stage


Funniest: Two wardrobe malfunctions. One when I played Chava and lost my skirt in the wedding scene in Fiddler and had to hide behind the large Rabbi. Second when I bared my breasts to the Grand Dinner theatre audience in the Pal Joey ballet and my halter dress broke. "And scene". Most Memorable: Sharing the stage with Carol Burnett in the musical FROM THE TOP written by Ken & Mitzie Welch from The Carol Burnett Show. We rehearsed at CBS. Costumed by Bob Mackie. Co-starring Ken Berry. It was a dream come true.
