She has gone on to have many guest appearances and recurring roles on TV shows, including Ru Paul's Drag Race, Dear White People, Drunk History, Claws, 2 Broke Girls, Workaholics, Glee, Idiotsitter, Tales of the City, The L Word: Generation Q, Life in Pieces, and @Midnight.

On the film side, you can catch Fortune in Office Christmas Party, Social Animals, Father of the Year, and Yes Day. You may recognize her voice from TV, in roles including Evelyn on The Simpsons, Brenda on Fox's Bless The Harts, and Ava on Cartoon Network's Summer Camp.

Fortune can currently be heard every morning with Tom Papa on Sirius XM's channel 93 on their show, What a Joke with Papa and Fortune. She also hosts a weekly podcast with her partner, Jax, called Sincerely Fortune. Feimster frequently recurred on Lights Out with David Spade on Comedy Central and is currently starring opposite David Spade on the new Netflix series, The Netflix Afterparty.
