See Fortune Feimster in Minneapolis!


Posted on 7th June, by ParkandShop

Look up the reviews for Fortune Feimster, and you’ll see resounding agreement that she is exceptionally funny and even down-to-earth in person. Her career is rooted in Chelsea Lately, on which she both wrote and performed. You may also recognize her from The Mindy Project, GleeTwo Broke GirlsWorkaholicsDrunk History, or other television roles she’s had.

Of course, a large part of her job is standup, for which was named one of Variety’s “Top 10 Comics to Watch” after she was a semifinalist on Last Comic Standing. If you haven’t seen her material outside of her characters, James Keast said this about her in his Exclaim review:

“Feimster is a warm and open-hearted performer, and she’s a good storyteller for material based on her early life, up to the point that a Lifetime movie prompted her coming out. Very little of her comedy reflects her life now — she did do some material about early dating experience — which made her set seem both timeless and less fresh. Life as a flannel-clad lesbian in image-obsessed Hollywood — she’s been in L.A. for 15 years now — would seem pretty ripe for comic material.”

Fortune Feimster will take part in the Minneapolis Comedy festival at the Pantages Theatre on Thursday, June 27 at 7:30/ Tickets are $25. You can park for just $6 at the Park and Shop ramps that are near the venue.
