Comedian Fortune Feimster Brings The Funny To Chicago's Lincoln Lodge

Posted: Updated:

This Thursday, Chicago's longest running and most innovative independent comedy showcase--The Lincoln Lodge--is bringing the the hilarious Fortune Feimster to the Windy City for the first show of their eleventh season.

Feimster tours nationally and is a resident performer at Los Angeles' famous Groundlings Theatre. You may also recognize her from her appearance on NBC's "Last Comic Standing," and "Is this Awesome?" on AfterEllen.com.

"Fortune Feimster has a natural Southern charm that's evident from the moment you meet her -- and it's not just because she's been going to Hooters for family dinners since she was 10," writes Lesley Goldberg at SheWired.com. "The out stand-up comic has embraced her background and unique comedy style to become a regular on the L.A. comedy scene where she often mocks what she knows -- taking shots at her beloved mother and riffs on her sexual orientation."
