Fortune Feimster is looking forward to getting back on the road.

And the comedian is kicking off her “Live Love Laugh!” tour in Albuquerque on Friday, Jan. 27.

“You guys are the first,” Feimster says. “I didn’t get to Albuquerque on my last tour. We’re making good on it.”

Feimster finds herself juggling her professional life and private life. Her wife recently broke her elbow and will miss a few days on the road with her.

She also toured at the end of 2022 and didn’t get a big break in between.

“I’m juggling the stand-up comedy world and acting,” she says. “There is really nothing better than the live performance.”

To prep for her new show, Feimster has been a regular in Los Angeles as various comedy clubs for the last three months.

She worked out material 15 minutes at a time.

“Then I began to do a whole hour at clubs,” she explains. “The structure and the jokes, I build the process to where it’s entertaining. When the material is ready to go, it’s such a proud moment.”

Feimster’s comedy is directly connected to where she’s at in life.

Her last comedy show on Netflix, “Good Fortune,” ended with her getting married.

“This show picks up into married life,” she says. “I’m talking a lot more about my mom again. My jokes are from what it’s like being a married woman. I will also throw in some nostalgic pieces. I always try to tell stories from my own life that are relatable to others.”

Feimster’s journey to headliner has been a long one.

The North Carolina native began her ascent to popularity as a writer and panelist on E!’s hit show “Chelsea Lately.” She then starred as a series regular on “The Mindy Project” for Hulu and on “Champions” and “Kenan” for NBC.

She’s a voice actor, recently voicing the role of Evelyn on “The Simpsons” and Olive in “Velma” on HBO Max.

“As I get older, I am more picky about what projects I want to get involved with,” she says. “I think this will be the first time I headline a show in Albuquerque. I’m looking forward to being there and checking out the local spots before the show.”
