Christian Brescia 00:08
Mindy Cohn 00:09
Today we are having a conversation. I'm such a fan with comedian, writer and actress fortune Finster. Born and raised in North Carolina fortune graduated summa cum laude from peace college with a major in communications. Of course she did. After living in Spain for a year she moved to Los Angeles and became a personal assistant to actress Emily Proctor, who was an alumni at her college who she led. I didn't know amazing, another North Carolinian and pursued comedy. She became an entertainment journalist for the next seven years and in 2005 joined the Groundlings theater studying improv and sketch comedy. After four years she was selected to join the Groundlings Sunday company. In 2010. She made her television debut on NBC his last Comic Standing and went on to become a successful stand up also guest starring on a variety of television shows, and in 2015 joined the cast of the Mindy Project and as guest starred since then as well. her feature film work includes roles in office Christmas party, the happy time murders friendsgiving soul, and most recently in Barb and Star go to VISTA Del Mar with Kristen Wigg and Yes Day with Jennifer Gardner fortune lives with her wife Jacqueline in Los Angeles, and they have a house in Belmont North Carolina.
Christian Brescia 01:25
Wow. I like it's come full circle. That's kind of amazing. All right, ladies and gentlemen, we're very excited to welcome the hilarious Fortune Feimster.
Mindy Cohn 01:33
I'm so excited. Hello. I'm so excited. I'm fangirling completely FYI. twinsies. For real, please. Oh my god. Thank you so much for coming on this episode. We start each episode Krishna and I kind of came up with 20 questions. I pull five. Yeah, we just start talking. Really?
Fortune Feimster 01:56
Yeah. Like did your jar says secrets?
Mindy Cohn 01:59
Fortune Feimster 02:04
that's where you should put secrets in a jar. A cookie jar.
Mindy Cohn 02:11
Fortune. If you could have dinner with any three people. Who would they be?
Fortune Feimster 02:15
Wow. I'm starting having to wait just a moment. Can they be dead?
Mindy Cohn 02:21
Yes. My favorite ––– ghost dinners!
Fortune Feimster 02:24
Well, for sure. My grandmother, she's dead. But I would really love to be able to have dinner with her as an adult because she died when I was 18. So that would be cool. To be like Grandma, what's up? Tell me everything. Now. Yeah. is when you're 18 years like, yeah, you're just like, being a dumb teenager and not really paying attention. So that one for sure. I'd love Oprah to be there. My Nana and Oprah can be there together. That'd be pretty fun.
Mindy Cohn 02:52
Now, now I would want to perhaps be the waitstaff for that dinner. But I can listen to your grandma and Oprah have a
Fortune Feimster 03:02
man, that would be pretty incredible. And then the last person would be I'm very, I'm very old fashion, which I think is probably also a result of my grandmother's influence. Carol Burnett would be at dinner as well. Huge on my comedy and on me and I would love love to be able to have dinner with her.
Mindy Cohn 03:23
Yes. Oh, my gosh, no, it's a good table. Oh, that's a good table. I don't even care what you're having. Usually, I kind of care what's being served. But you know.
Fortune Feimster 03:36
I'm like, what's on the menu? Exactly. I do ask people like when I get invited to parties, I'm like, what's this next situation?
Mindy Cohn 03:45
Nice. Then my RSVP will follow when I know when I'm going to be consuming. I'm among your friends. What are you best known for? Man, these are deep. Yeah, we literally we go right into the deep end. Yes,
I would say I think my friends know I'm pretty loyal. I have friends for a long time. And you know if they need me, I'm there. I'm, I'm busy. They're busy. So we don't like necessarily see each other as much as we want. But I think they know that if anything was was wrong. And they called me or texted that they needed me that I would show up. How
Mindy Cohn 04:25
did you learn how to be a good friend? Like, do you remember you saying to yourself at some point as a kid or a teenager like I'm a good friend?
Well, part of it for me was that I was gay and didn't know it. So I was like, an intense friend back then. Because I mean, I have like a secret crush on her friend.
Mindy Cohn 04:48
And I love her. No, I mean, I love her.
And we caught on. So it was like too good of a friend. They're like, okay, you need to tell me. So I think I was too intense. Have a friend back then because I just didn't know what I was feeling, you know? Yes. But as far as like true friendships like words, very platonic, it I think I learned from watching my mom weirdly enough, because she after my parents divorced, she would put a lot of weight into relationships. And then I would see your get heartbroken. And had, she had kind of not spent time on her friendships and sort of cultivating those friendships. And so when she was, had been brokenhearted, she didn't have anyone to turn to. And then she would try to like, kind of get those friendships going again. And so I think in the back of my head, I was like, but you got to keep them both going, you know, yes, partner, you need your friends. And I
Mindy Cohn 05:49
still to this day, have friends like that. But I know if there is someone in their life, a significant other, we are not gonna see each other that much. And I just know that to be so
you know, I'm guilty of it, too. But that's, you know, it's as I've gotten older, I do see it is hard sometimes because you do spend especially the last year and a half, you've only been with whoever you live with. Yeah. And so sometimes it is easy to get into that, you know, habit of just kind of like hunkering down at home. So I try to be conscious of like checking in on friends. And even if we're not seeing each other, just be like, how are you?
Mindy Cohn 06:23
Yes. Be mindful. Well, yeah, I will be giving you my number. So you can check in on these. Yeah, it's my she's like how passive aggressive or downright aggressive that was to be my friend. We have a friend check on me. Yes, my friend and call me. assumption do people make about you? That is wrong. They've got it wrong.
A lot of people assume I think they assume I'm like a wild party person. And they also think I'm a big stoner. They do. Well, I have squinty eyes and I talk slow. And I'm like, kind of a Mosier. You know, and so I cannot tell you the amount of comments I get from people because of my accent. And I you know, I don't annainsea always because of that. And because of my eyes that people are like, how high were you when you do that? Like, I don't any weed at all. I'm a big rule follower. So because I was on Chelsea and I, you know, I'm a comedian, and I am very silly. People just assume I'm just like, wild and I'm just kind of like a homebody that likes to like watch Netflix. And eat takeout. It
Mindy Cohn 07:35
honestly, sounds good to me. My level of excitement as well. Exactly.
If I can like lounge on the couch and like chat with friends. Part of it.
Mindy Cohn 07:45
Yeah. Yes. Yeah, I agree. Well, you know, I'm just down for a dinner party. Yeah. gab. Oh, my God. Yeah. Now this might be challenging for you. I'd like to see the app. So who is the most fascinating person you've met? Cuz I think I think there's been a few. I mean,
aside from in this moment with you, oh, my God, please. She's talking to me, but
Mindy Cohn 08:11
that's a Christian. Right. Excuse me. How ego maniacal?
That's a hard question. Because before I was a comedian, while I was pursuing comedy, I was also an entertainment journalist for seven years. Yes, I did red carpets. I did the Oscars Grammys. I talked to people on the phone. It was the first
Mindy Cohn 08:33
person star that you interviewed.
Betty White. Oh, yeah. On the phone. It was on the phone. And I was such a fan of hers. Because again, I watched Golden Girls all the time with my grandmother. And she was doing something for TV Land or something I can't remember. And they were like, do you want to interview Betty White on the phone? I thought I was about to cry. I was like, yeah. And she was so lovely. And then at the end of the conversation, she said, Now stay my friend. And I was like, Oh, this is the greatest. He's darling, darling, darling. And oh, I think the one of the coolest experiences I covered the re premiere of Mary Poppins and I got to interview Julie Andrews interviewed her twice for that. And for Shrek one of the Shrek movies. But at the re premiere, I interviewed her and she was so fascinating. So cool. And then I got to watch dig vandyke watch himself in Mary Poppins in the theater and he was singing along the song. It was magical.
Mindy Cohn 09:42
And another two of the most darling individuals in this town period. Full stop. Oh, yeah. Oh my gosh, moment.
It was cool. I got to do all kinds of things as a journalist, but it was really I wasn't able to break into the comedy world yet. What's coming, you know, learning. And so it was, it was cool to be like Hollywood adjacent for so long to just sort of, you know, learn and interview people
Mindy Cohn 10:10
doing that make you any less starstruck.
I only really get starstruck with the people like you bring it up Giuliana. Betty White dig vandyke legend zyk legend. That to start, you know, I get starstruck by I don't. I'm more like when I see like actors I like I'm like, Oh, you're so funny. You're I really enjoy your work. It's more of just like an appreciation. But I really love these legendary people that I that we're lucky that they're still here that I can even meet them. Because I grew up watching them in some capacity. Yeah.
Mindy Cohn 10:45
Last question. Not forever, but just for now. What do you splurge, john? Where those bucks go in this? Coffee? Oh, okay.
Which I'm maybe not a splurge. A huge splurge. But I do love to buy coffee from coffee shops. Mm hmm. So I've been trying to drink more of at home because it is expensive. If you ask like, how would you spend in coffee, but I just love it. I love ice espresso. So that's probably my weekly splurge. And then I really I mean, as you can see, I'm liking flannel, t shirts and jeans all the time. So clothes is not a thing. Do you travel for pleasure? I do we do splurge on that. Now that I'm with my wife? Yes. She loves to travel. And I always love to travel. I lived in Spain for a year, um, after college in Mexico for two summers. So I always have that. But I never was with anybody that like a significant enough relationship to be like, let's take a trip together. Yes. Right.
Mindy Cohn 11:52
So now, I've noticed that some comedians because they travel so much, that they really, really just want to stay home when they're not working. Yeah. And don't really connect like traveling with pleasure.
Mm hmm. Which I'm glad you do. I have that too. But what we try to do is, and we don't, sometimes we'll go just for pleasure, but if like I had chosen Australia, and I was like, oh, since we're in Australia, why don't we take a flight to New Zealand for four days, so we try to tack on, like pleasure to some of those trips.
Mindy Cohn 12:25
So does Jacqueline travel with you all the time, or just when you're going places, like so far away? And so
she travels with me a lot. But if occasionally, I mean, some cities she skips out on
Mindy Cohn 12:41
we won't mention that. We are saving your face Jacqueline. Thanks for playing.
She goes a lot of cities now cuz she's kind of like a tour manager kind of role. Oh, so she helps me a lot with shows and just career stuff. And but occasionally, I'll be like he even said the city. She's like, Yeah.
Mindy Cohn 13:03
Thank you so much. Thank you. Yes, yeah. Yes. So obviously, I did a little deep dive as I do with all my guests so that I can do a proper intro. You'll be prompted by now. But I just kind of want to skip up to if you don't mind unless there's something you really have a hankering to talk to me about which is fine till we could be tangential Trudy's about it. Alright, and go topic to topic. But I feel like really significantly when you went on last Comic Standing. I feel that in your life, you just fully stepped into I am now a professional, like period full stop. I don't need to go back to whatever day job I had. Is that true or not?
When it took a turn? Oh, for sure. It was my first professional gig. Right? And the first time where like, I was on TV, really? And where I thought oh my gosh, I love this. And I think I might be able to get to do this for a living and and that's when I started touring after that.
Mindy Cohn 13:59
Now do you write every day? Are you really disciplined about your app? And you're okay, I'm not gonna love you more. So much more right now. To be indie. It's hard. It feels like homework sometimes. Yeah, of course it does. That's like learning lines for me. Sometimes I am such a procrastinator.
Yeah. Yeah. It's really hard. It's, um, because I do a lot of different writing. One thing. I don't think a lot of people know about me. A lot of people don't know, I was a journalist for seven years. And then I wrote on even though I was on Chelsea shows a writer a full time writer on your show for another three years. And then I write script like movies and TV shows. And it's something I don't think a lot of people know. So I'm like a kind of a closeted writer. And so yeah, I've sold two movies to amblin. I've sold two scripted sitcoms one I got both write to ABC when I got to shoot so far. Yeah. The movies haven't gotten made like couple are really close and I keep Yeah, cross My fingers cuz I'd love to be able to show people that side of me. Yeah, that writer, actor side. But so usually writing is very much a part of my life if I'm not writing stand up, I'm writing some sort of script or something. And so sometimes I'll shut my computer and be like, no.
Mindy Cohn 15:20
Right, but you are, I mean to do all that you are prolific. I mean, I mean, not prolific, but
at least like I've done a lot of it. Yeah. And I hope to get to the goal is to try to get to the point where I can get more stuff made. And so it's nice that I have the skill, but now it's like, I'm, I hope to get to take it to the next level. Because, you know, I mean, but you know, it's so hard to get anything made in this town. And they're always like, one, you know, wanting somebody that moves the needle, and you're like, what else do I have to do to move the needle? Yeah, so for me, I think the thing I can control because I can't control the business, as you know, it's its own beast. Trauma stand up, I can control my how much
Mindy Cohn 16:07
post pandemic and even pre pandemic because, I mean, we can't really even talk about the last 18 months with any kind of what abnormal, but how many days are you on the road per year with comedy? It varies. Like, when I work a lot, or a friend,
I do a lot. I've been torn for 11 years, right? And it was never like a specific tour. Like, oh, here's my tour up until I just launched a big tour. And this is the first time I've been called. It's called to sweet to salty. It's coming off the heels of my standard special sweet and salty. Yeah, because this tour was supposed to start March 14 of last year. Oh my word. Oh, so this is like a tape to kind of thing and it's all new material. It's not the thing from the special we just saw. It's funny that coming off the heels of that, like let's try this again. Yeah. So it's my first big theater tour. So this is a big thing. I'm really proud of that.
Mindy Cohn 17:01
Where are you playing in LA? So I can buy my tickets? I haven't booked it yet. But I will let you know. Yes, you will probably
won't be till 2022. Okay, we're starting in September. And I got to build my setup. So right now I'm my writing is focused on what do I want to say? What jokes I want to tell a story? So I want to tell and it's just like, what's going to make people want to sit there and listen to me for an hour, you know? And that's the challenge is like, how do you go from your special and make it better than that? What is the thing to talk about? So I'm always racking my brain trying to come up with stuff.
Mindy Cohn 17:35
I just think it's the hardest job outside, I always say of a soap opera where people have to learn 40 pages of dialogue a day. Yeah. So that aside, I do think stand up is just the hardest, as far as just courage needed. And stamina, and perseverance and creativity. Hello.
Yeah. Yeah. I mean, if the performance part is like, Oh, that's easy, breezy. Beautiful. Yeah, it's creating the set. That is you hone in hone in hone it. So for my sweet, salty, special, I was on the road. I prep that for two and a half years. Wow. And so now that I've done that, I've learned a lot. Mm hmm. This one I hope won't take as long because I feel like I've been able to trim some of the fat and cut to like what I need to do. And I hope to get a special out sooner than what that one took me.
Mindy Cohn 18:25
Yes, yes, we want it. I just can say like, we want it. Good. Thank you. Do you just tell your representation like no film or TV gigs? While I'm I mean, they obviously have your dates. I know that but you seem to have been able, especially in the last six, seven years been able to really weave you know, your television and film career and ascend in a great way. Well, thank
you. Um, it kind of in a weird way, like worked itself out? Does it feed each other? or? Yeah, it was the Netflix special especially did I definitely can see a big difference in that because it was it's a worldwide thing. And like finally people, you know, stand up, it's like, oh, we can see exactly who you are for a whole hour. And whereas with my acting, I tend to play the the friend or the person that pops in the office worker. Some people enjoy that which I and I love it. But they don't see me I'm not like a the main focal point or so my stand ups like, Oh, this is one place people get to be with me for a whole hour or my half hour special. But I've found that with acting, it's like, sometimes I'll be really, really busy and filming a lot. And so then my standard kind of goes a little bit to the wayside. And then like the acting will be like there's no auditions, I'm not filming anything. It's just kind of part of the cycle. And then my standup comes to the forefront. So I was able to really focus on my, my sweet salty set, because actually I had just finished Mindy Project and I'd done another thing but it was kind of thing in the dip. And so that came up and then I filmed that, and then acting came back up again. So kinda yo yoing Yeah, toes.
Mindy Cohn 20:08
I wanted to know whether it was the special or I just do have a rarely Christian, you can attest this do I talk about someone's social media, but you curated. And I mean that it's totally positive. When I say I realized when curated came out of my mouth to say Monday, wait a minute, now, but you know, what I meant is it is wildly entertaining, but also very revealing in such a beautiful way. I mean, obviously, I think I know you, I have never met you before. You know, I'm just saying has that helped you in every way becoming kind of a personality for your stand up, but also just notoriety?
I think it's like, it's a combo of like, being on things. And then also having that I think people know, to come to like Instagram or Facebook or wherever it is. They'll get to interact with me now that I can respond everybody. I don't write comments all the time, but they know that they're going to see me and try to keep my page. And I'll go a couple days sometimes without posting I don't let it consume my life. But I want to make it a place. That's fun. And so I'll try to post videos that will make people laugh because instead of just always been like, come to my show come to my show. We don't want we don't care about that. Yeah, I'm like, What is uh, I want people to be able to come there and feel some joy. Yes, a little bit. You know,
Mindy Cohn 21:26
I feel joy.
Oh, good. Good. Also just started be real. Yes. I feel like a lot of social media is everyone. People talking about this putting their best foot forward and showing off and look how great everything is. And sometimes I try to not that I don't do that from time to time, but I try to be more like, I'm a real person. You're a real person.
Mindy Cohn 21:47
Yeah, like candied. Yeah, that's kind of part of the podcast you but also I am an Instagram. Whoa. And why I say that is, as my granny rose would say, I'm not on Facebook. Mm hmm. And so you know, I picked one and it was Instagram because I love pictures. And I love storytelling. Yeah, I love that. I feel like I can share parts of my life. But I also am a really private person. So I don't share a heck of a lot. But it is when I say curated in regard to myself. Yeah, it's I don't necessarily just show the best. But I do want people to just have a smile or a tickle. That's what I use it for. Let me put it that way. And I do have to say it's been very instrumental in the last couple years. Yeah, getting me in the rooms or booking a job. That's amazing. Yeah, it is amazing. So I and someone had told me that this is the tool you need, like get on it. Yeah. So it's been kind of amazing. Sometimes our free
truly knows we're ever get that like industry people. You know, look at that. So like, sometimes you post that picture. You know, and you kind of forget people are watching, you're like paying attention and my brain is very silly. I've always kind of silly leaning. And so I don't think about looking cool or trying to be cool. I'm just like, a dumb photo of myself. I'm gonna post and I'm in spam bags and when grown woman in spam.
Mindy Cohn 23:16
Yes, that's possible.
But then I also like it occasionally. And I don't do this often. If I'm like, during the pandemic, I was like, yeah, I'm sad today. Yes. And not. Yes. You don't post it to be like, I need your pity. Precious, more of like, I don't want to have to pretend today. Yes.
Mindy Cohn 23:38
Yes. I've still have not mastered the Instagram Live. Like I'm not good at that part of it. Yes. Um, because I think Truthfully, I am a bit of an introvert and I'm very shy. So, but I have the face that does not say that my face says come talk to me. Yeah, I'm interested. Like, Oh, my God, you have a very open face. Yeah. Yeah. Again, genetics. So I think people don't know that about me that I actually like, I thrive in this group of like, two or three. Yeah, I am a master of my domain by being a group you know, and I'm become a wallflower a little bit. Yeah,
I hang out at the snack tables.
Mindy Cohn 24:15
Yeah. Yeah, no, I
relate. If anyone's told you that they see me at a party the last like 10 years they probably like and fortunately was by the snack.
Mindy Cohn 24:28
I relate. Yes. What did you guys binge on? Anything that you became a fan of while you were hunkered down in? Oh my gosh, I feel like we watched everything and everything. Were you one of those people that watched everything and can't remember anything?
Yes, pretty much everything that came out. We were watching and we were assuming I remember being so moved early on by the documentary on Netflix. Gosh, it's the two older lesbians that had been in a relationship for like 60 years or 70 years and now What is the name of that?
Mindy Cohn 25:02
Oh my god some women to one partner died
yeah and played on the women's baseball league the League of Their Own was based on and
Mindy Cohn 25:12
now I'm remembering it it's always thinking of something else now remember that they were they moved together they close it down their apartment that they lived in for I start to oh my gosh,
that still sticks with me because it was early on. I know I'm I was trying to see if I could I'm trying to pull it up myself.
Mindy Cohn 25:30
Yeah, it was something love Yes. And I I wonder if league was in it in the title because I remember her being a part of the you know female baseball. Is it a secret love a secret? And they had to be because in the day they could be you know, out and loud and proud. True Love Story.
Mm hmm. It like I cried at how beautiful that love story was. So that has stayed with me since then. So if you haven't watched it, it is a must watch. Gosh, what else? Typically cry when you watch movies? Are you like a crier by nature? Or is that you were just so moved you couldn't help yourself? Well, I'm not a crier by nature. But I am a cancer so I can be sensitive. So I definitely emote when envy. You know when in those instances like I don't like if I get my feelings hurt. I'm not like crying.
Mindy Cohn 26:27
But Are you mocking because I happen to be a crier. Oh, wait a minute. She's joking, cuz she's a happy crier. That's I'm happy. I mostly cry out of jokes. Yeah. Have a proper week, almost every day usually at all happy.
I probably cry more beautiful, deep things that I do like sad things. Yeah,
Mindy Cohn 26:50
same. Oh, yeah.
And for whatever reason, I can't think of any other thing that I watch.
Mindy Cohn 26:57
It's all a blur. I know. I'm gonna be a little bit you right now, but I kind of can't help myself, please. I mean, I just can't. It's still funny when a friend of mine has a new show and put it in, it's up on Netflix. And she was saying something like, thank you for making us number. You know, whatever. It wasn't, it was a high number. Yeah. And I just thought it's cuz everybody's seen everything else. I mean, yes, it might be good. But truly, that is not a real number blankety blank feel bad that I even think that but I do think that.
I mean, it's just Yeah, yeah. I mean, that's Yeah, everyone's starved for content. Because we have sat in our homes on our couch. It's almost to the point where you're not even really taking it all in. You know what I mean? You're just kind of like, next food next. Yeah,
Mindy Cohn 27:46
yeah. Yeah, for sure.
I do like that. What we do in the shadows. I've been watching that. It's so funny.
Mindy Cohn 27:52
It's on. He's so brilliant. I mean, yeah, that one's been really amazing. Yes,
I finally been watching shits Creek. I know, I'm like so late to the party. But no,
Mindy Cohn 28:02
I think you're as late as almost everybody else. I mean, you know what I'm saying? Right? One of those that really found a home and I couldn't be happier for them. But yes, I don't think that would have happened. If not. So what are who currently inspires you? Right now? Who are you just an Uber fan of right now? Oh, my gosh, that a hard one. Sorry. Just making your mind you know, think too hard. I don't want it to be that way.
Because weirdly enough, I don't This is so weird. Being a stand up to say this I don't watch a lot of stand up. And I don't know why I never did growing up either. Like I my big influences. Were like SNL like you know, the Adam Sandler days and the Shannon days and Will Ferrell. I always love those really like people that played big silly characters. I always gravitated towards them. Kristen Wiig. So I'm always a fan of people like that, who were just making naked daddy stuff because it makes them laugh, you know? Yes. And I appreciate when you know, as people get more successful that they are the ones that still want to do comedy and be silly. I appreciate that.
Mindy Cohn 29:16
Yes. Becoming these actors. Yeah. Yeah.
I love the bridesmaids movie. It's I thought it was so funny. So all the women from that I'm such a fan of I'm a big fan of women in general women, comedians, women actors. I root for a lot of them. And n love watch. I love ensemble. Women. Same thing. Same and I want more of it. Yeah. And it's almost like you have one funny woman led movie and they're like, oh my god. Wow, look that did good.
Mindy Cohn 29:52
Five years, right. Five years. Exactly. Yeah, exactly. Yeah, you guys get back to North Carolina. Not much did you go back during the pandemic year at all?
Here are normal times I go about three times a year. I went in October, it was when things really dipped at the time, it was before the big uptick. And this is a little risky. But no, I stayed away from my mom for a while, like, we were on opposite ends of the house yelling at each other. Um, but it was so nice just to go home. And I went for a week. And then we just got back from going fully vaccinated. So it was like, Oh, we can actually have an exam. And my wife got to see her family, her mom, she hadn't seen in a year and a half.
