She is currently living and performing regularly in Atlanta, Georgia and hosts The Plan B Emergency Comedy Show every month in the beautiful city of Chamblee.

In January 2013, she was featured in Organic: A Comedy Tour & Documentary which took place in 22 cities over a span of 30 days.
"Lace takes the stage like a lady and then punches you in the face like a sailor with her first punchline. I like that. I enjoy watching and listening to her make an audience understand why what she is saying is funny, not by explaining it, but merely by telling the joke the way she knows it should be told... her way." -Marc Maron's WTF Podcast
