Fortune Feimster, the Southern comic who hails from North Carolina, is one of the busiest actors, standup comedians, and writers working today. Variety named her one of their “Top 10 Comics to Watch” in 2014 and she’s been reaching new milestones ever since. Fortune, who first rose to fame as a performer and writer on “Chelsea Lately,” can currently be seen as a series regular on “The Mindy Project” where she plays the very loveable nurse Colette.
It’s been a quick rise for Fortune who made her TV debut in 2010 on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” where she finished strong as a semi-finalist. She has since had recurring guest roles on “Life In Pieces” and “Mulaney,” and has appeared on “Glee,” “Two Broke Girls,” “Workaholics,” “Idiotsitter,” “Drunk History,” and “Married.” She’s also a regular guest on Chelsea Handler’s Netflix show, “Chelsea.”

Not only has Fortune proven to be a strong performer, but she’s also had her hand in a number of projects behind the camera. After being cast in the Tina Fey pilot “Cabot College” for Fox, Fortune went on to team up with Fey to create her own starring vehicle called “Family Fortune,” which was given a pilot order at ABC. It would be the second TV pilot Fortune sold to the network.
