TV star coming to LaughFest


Another artist was added to the 10th annual Gilda’s LaughFest lineup.

Fortune Feimster will be performing at 7 p.m. March 14, at Fountain Street Church, 24 Fountain St. NE.

Feimster is a stand-up comedian, writer and actor. She currently stars in the NBC series “Champions.” She also plays Nurse Colette in Hulu’s “The Mindy Project.”

Feimster has a one-hour special, “Sweet & Salty,” that will premiere on Netflix this month, but she is no stranger to the online streaming service. She made her Netflix debut in 2018 with a half-hour special. Feimster rose to prominence on the “Chelsea Lately” show.

The festival also features the return of Rockin’ Homegrown Jam to LaughFest, which is planned for 7 p.m. March 13, at the Intersection, 133 Grandville Ave. SW. The Legal Immigrants are scheduled to perform, as are other local musicians.
