Slice of Life presents comedian Lace Larrabe Sunday night at PULP

Doors open at 7:00 and show starts at 7:30.   About Larrabe: My name is Lace Larrabee and I am a has-been beauty queen bartender who is pursuing my dream of being a stand-up comedy star in front of tens of people at a time.  I am currently living and performing regularly in Atlanta, Georgia.   I host The Plan B Emergency Comedy Show every month in the beautiful city of Chamblee.  Outside of my home state of Georgia, I’ve had the opportunity to entertain audiences everywhere from New Orleans to New York City to exotic places like Mobile, Alabama.   In January 2013, I was featured in, “Organic: A Comedy Tour & Documentary” which took place in 22 cities over a span of 30 days.  Ryan Singer from Marc Maron’s WTF Podcast had the following to say about my comedy:  ”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.”   Here is a clip of Larrabe performing:   Joining Larrabe on stage will be comedians Alex Joyce, Curtis Mao, Andrew Petriccione, Josh Rosenstein, Art Sturtevant, Zack Levine, Reid Clark, Jeff Felton, Josh DeBerry, and host comedian Kelly Row.  ...
