Fortune – not be confused with names like Precious or Charity (it happens!) – is a native of North Carolina, though it’s hard to tell from her very sophisticated accent. After graduating from Peace College (yes, it’s a real place), she taught English in Spain for a year and then headed to Los Angeles where she started working as a journalist for a syndicated newspaper column. A few improv classes later and she was hooked (on comedy, not drugs)! She’s also become a successful stand-up comedian (at least that’s what her mom tells friends who are doctors) and is a regular at the Comedy Store. Fortune would like to thank herself (and God) for all of her accomplishments, but mostly herself.
