Comedy is a delicate art, one that not everyone can pull off. Very few find success in it and even fewer make a career out of it. Meet Fortune Feimster, a 38-year-old Canadian who has made a name for herself through comedy. She is not just a stand-up comedian but a proud member of the LGBTQ community. Fortune is also equally successful on the small screen as she is as a comedian.
Her career can be traced way back to the ’90s as she used to write for an entertainment blog prior to moving to Los Angeles. She worked for the blog for the better part of seven years before finally moving to LA. Little that she knew that it would be the turning point in her life as it would be where she found all of her fortune and fame.
She slowly made her way to the top as a comedian, one step at a time. It was a long and slow process but the rewards were huge and that’s what incentivized her to carry on with her journey. After years of hard work and determination, she would become a full-time comedian. She was the happiest person alive when she landed on her dream job.
Fortune now stands as a writer, an actress as well as a successful stand-up comedian. She has written and performed for E!’s Chelsea Lately and landed recurring roles in Hulu’s The Mindy Project.
She has also been able to amass a significant net worth for herself. Almost all of her net worth comes from the hit show, The Mindy Project. It is amongst Hulu’s biggest shows and has been watched by millions of viewers worldwide. Her net worth is estimated to be somewhere in the neighborhood of $300,000 – $400,000.
