Quick question about this card- does it prevent a character from committing to a story (for either defence or offense)?  Do you commit, then exhaust characters - or do you exhaust in order to commit?  

You exhaust in order to commit (usually), so it would prevent a character from committing to a story (unless a card effect is used to commit the character which circumvents the need to exhaust to commit.)

I was wondering if this meant I could stop an opponents card from being readied or to stop one of my cards being exhausted?

You cannot directly prevent a card from being readied or exhausted, as On the Lam is an action not a disrupt. So you would have to fully resolve whatever effect is causing the readied/exhausted state completely before bring able to use On the Lam.

You can however use it in a proactive way too similar effect. Using it at the end of your turn against an opponents character for example.

On the Lam + Naomi O'Bannion + Unending Festivities seems like a lot of fun.
