The lovable Southern comic, Fortune Feimster, moved to Los Angeles in 2003 to pursue comedy after graduating Summa Cum Laude from Peace College in North Carolina. First she made a pit stop in Sevilla, Spain where she taught English, studied Spanish, and backpacked all over Europe for a year. Then with $25 in her pocket she landed in Los Angeles, slept on a friend’s couch for a month, and hoped for the best. After a brief stint as a personal assistant where she lost her boss’s cat on at least three occasions (don’t worry she found him!), Fortune was hired to be an entertainment journalist for the syndicated newspaper column Beck/Smith. She would remain with them for seven years where she was published in such outlets as the Creators Syndicate, Netscape.com, and the LA and NY Daily News. It was in 2005 that Fortune began taking improv and sketch classes at the Groundlings Theatre as a way to make friends but soon a budding comedian was born! After four years of intense training, she was selected to be in the Groundlings’ prestigious Sunday Company (with alumni like Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig) where she performed a new sketch show every week for a year-and-a-half. It wouldn’t be long before Fortune would begin making a name for herself in the standup world after being made a paid regular at the World Famous Comedy Store and being selected as one of the “New Faces” at the renowned Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal. Soon she made her national TV debut on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” where she finished as a semi-finalist. During this time, she was flown out twice to New York to audition in front of Lorne Michaels for “Saturday Night Live,” but it would be Chelsea Handler who would give Fortune her next big platform. Fortune has now been a full-time writer and performer on the E! Network’s popular show, “Chelsea Lately,” for the last three years, and is a main cast mem
