Although not one of the five traditional senses, a sense of humor is the only thing that allows humans to answer knock-knocks at the door. You’re there with this Groupon to see comedienne Fortune Feimster presented by NAT Promotions at Wallstreet Nightclub on Saturday, July 14, at 8 p.m. For $19, you get a ticket package (a $40 value) that includes the following:
- One ticket for general-admission seating
- A private meet-and-greet and photo opportunity with Fortune
- Admission to after-show dance party
Although Fortune has the voice and the curls of a candied Southern belle, her sweet, salty, and charmingly blunt standup could make steel magnolias blush. A writer and roundtable regular on E!’s Chelsea Lately, Fortune first made her TV debut on the seventh season of NBC’s Last Comic Standing, where her gut-busting tales of small-town adolescence propelled her into the semifinals. In her adroit standup act, Fortune often muses on coming out of the closet, Hooters waitressing, and the pains of being compared to Richard Simmons. She also flaunts the sharp, improvisational wits she honed at The Groundlings, the famed comedy institution where Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig got their start. Reserved ticketholders get a chance to meet up with Fortune for a photo op to preserve the laugh-filled night, or perhaps ask if she’s ever seen Chelsea soonly. After the show, fans can shake off chuckle calories as the Wallstreet Nightclub unleashes its discotheque alter ego.
