The Lovable Southern Comic With Great Hair And An Even Better Personality
William Peace University welcomes back Peace alumna Fortune Feimster '00 '02 to the Kenan Auditorium stage in April.
Los Angeles-based comic Fortune Feimster ’00 ’02 will be on campus to headline a comedy show. She honed many of her comedic skills as a member of the Peace theatre company as a student and often performed improv.
After graduating Summa Cum Laude and back-packing through Europe, she moved to L.A. and became a columnist for Beck/Smith Hollywood. She also wrote for such outlets as the Creators Syndicate, netscape.com, and the NY Daily News.
Feimster has since taken the national comedy scene by storm, making her national TV debut in 2010 on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” where she finished as a semi-finalist. Now she’s is a full-time writer and performer on the E! Network’s popular “Chelsea Lately” show.
A 2010 Young Alumni Award recipient and former Miss Peace, Feimster travels the country doing standup and can often be seen at the Hollywood Improv and the world famous Comedy Store where she is a paid regular. She also happens to be a highly accomplished sketch comedian and improv artist and is a member of the prestigious Groundlings Sunday Company, which boasts such alumni as Will Ferrell, Kristen Wiig, and Lisa Kudrow.
Come out to see the show and some of her parodies of current events, from her "Darlene Witherspoon" character to her Honey Boo-Boo impersonation.
