Her versatility makes her one of the most sought- after women working the comedy scene today.
Fortune Feimster made her national TV debut in 2010 on NBC’s Last Comic Standing,where she finished as a semi-finalist. That same year she was selected to perform in the New Faces showcase at the Montreal Just For Laughs Comedy Festival. Now Fortune is a full-time writer and roundtable regular on the E! Network’s popular late night talk show, "Chelsea Lately," with Chelsea Handler. She’s also a cast member on the second season of Handler’s scripted series, “After Lately.” In her spare time, Fortune travels the country doing stand-up, but can be seen on a weekly basis at the Hollywood Improv and the World Famous Comedy Store. She is also a highly accomplished sketch comedian and improv artist, and is an alumna of the prestigious Groundlings Sunday Company, which
boasts other such alumni as Will Ferrell, Kristen Wiig, and Lisa Kudrow.
She’s brave, bold and comic gold. The real deal in a post-modern world seeking to pump out reproductions, Suzanne Westenhoefer is the reigning shtick chick worth noting. Her individual style and unique sense of self set the stage for all walks of life – young, old, gay, straight, lesbian, bi, and every descriptor imaginable in between.
When you’ve lived life, you talk about it. When you’re a comedienne living life, you really talk about it.
For instance, how do you refer to your new girlfriend’s parents while updating your status on Facebook…at their house…over Christmas? In-laws doesn’t quite seem the appropriate term. Neither does out-laws (that might imply divorce – assuming you’re in a state that even allows marriage, much less divorce)…there isn’t really a term that seems appropriate. If you’re Suzanne, that’s not unusual. The woman is terribly inappropriate – and we love her for it.
A lot has changed in the past year. On the one hand, you have a previously closeted girlfriend now in a very public relationship with one of the biggest lesbians in America. On the other, you have a gal with the gumption to quit smoking…while figuring out how to do so with the aforementioned stress-inducing situation. Add to the pot an attempt at aging gracefully and you’ve got yourself a comedy routine writing itself.
