She began collaborating with other creators for web series like "The Tube's Hautest" (YouTube 2014-15) and "Lana Steele: Makeup Spy" (YouTube 2015-), and shortly afterward began her first live tour of comedy performances. She then accruing big screen roles like in the animated film "Ice Age: Collision Course" (2016) and the comedy film "Bad Moms" (2016). In 2018, she performed in the music video for Maroon 5 and Cardi B's "Girl Like You," and that same year played a role in the film adaptation of "Fahrenheit 451" (HBO 2018) opposite Michael B.
