M’kay Curlfriends, Prolly about an hour ago I promised you a photo recap of my 2015. Because if you don’t already know, this is now a tradition I do so that I can remind myself that I am indeed doing *something* with my life and also so I can remind myself how young and pretty I once was.*
So, with just a tad further adieu, I give you, Courtney McClean (& The Dirty Curls too, of course)’s 2015, in pictures, which if you follow me on Instagram, it’s likely you’ve already seen:
My first Punchline Punchout!
I did the “Twin Cities Hit Show Podcast” with these guys for the first 55 episodes.
The Curls went as Three’s Company for CONvergence, because cosplay
Sean Bernard, AKA Timid Guy, AKA one of my favorite people, and a producer of the Twin Cities Hit Show podcast.
Caroline cosplayed as comedian Chris Knutson for our dance to Lizzo’s “Pants Vs. Dress”
I cosplay Tommy Ryman for our dance!
Tim Mahoney was a frequent visitor on TCHS because why not
Anna made me this lovely necklace as a departure gift.
Anna, Alicia, and I flex for the marquee
Headlining BNW ETC stage.
The Twin Cities’ Rockstar Storytellers! We stopped doing our regular shows, but we’re still pals.
What I expect to be at the end of 2016.
Started doing the El Cid open mic really regularly.
Drove to CA from MN. And stayed there.
On my way to some show, eye makeup on fleek, MIRITE KIDS?
I moved back to CA this year. And I finally live in Los Angeles.
I worked for an awesome pizza joint and was at the best Twins game ever. They scored 13 times and there were like 4 crazy homeruns. It was magical.
Got to see Shania Twain with lots of access thanks to my friend Jenny who does her hair and makeup.
When my eyes did that weird thing!
I lived in Minnesota for almost 8 years!
My father put on a wig and got my CA ID for me.
I’m not sure a lot of people miss me, but *someone* does (her name is Jen A)
Anna, Lacey, and I went up to Duluth to perform “The Sex (Ed) Show!” at Teatro Zuccone.
The man in this picture is my friend Kyle, who passed away in December. We’ll miss him terribly. (Gold-suited lady is the fabulous Morgan, still alive and kickin)
Hell yeah, Babs came with me.
My childhood acquaintance Laura is now one of my closest friends and podcast partner.
So proud after taping the Alex Aaron Comedy Hour
Bought this sexy baby. I named her Yvette.
Chris “Madoo” Maddock gets a big gold phallic award from the Monday Night Comedy Show
Michelle Biloon was a guest on the Twin Cities Hit Show and she is v cool
I headlined the Brave New Workshop ETC Comedy Showcase.
With my Rockstar Storytellers Dave, Rob, and Allegra.
Some sexy place somewhere in this gorgeous country, across which I drove, from MN to CA, in two days. Not recommended.
My name on the teleprompter, Curlfriends!
Yeah beach feet
New biz cards
Rehearsal with Madoo & Cherry, my party Curls
The motherfucking beach
Finally made that vagina tip jar
Me and Dan Finnerty! We opened for The Dan Band on Jan. 16, 2015.
Photobombing my own picture of Bill Corbett.
We played the Varsity Theater!!! For like 7 people, but WE PLAYED THE VARSITY.
Got some really calm looking headshots
From the Varsity stage, picture by Madoo. The actual show looked not too different from this.
Snagged the state magnet.
Last show for MN’s Rockstar Storytellers
“On The Fly,” a local MN entertainment show
With Tony Fly on the now defunct On The Fly
Minnesota Fringe comes and goes… my tenth one!
With the amazing Joseph Scrimshaw, in MN (he’s out in Los Angeles too tho)
Choreographed my first dance since like, high school.
Ate this placenta pill
Every Monday! I do El Cid Open Mic! I love it!
I performed on the Inner Sanctum stage
Miss Shannan! “On The Fly” again.
Motorcycle lessons with my pal Marissa
I look classy because I just married comic Brandon Reynoso to his wife Molly.
My eyes are doing this weird thing on purpose. This is me being sexy.
2016? More beaches! More TV! More fanny packs! More banjo!
*I still think I’m young and pretty. I think you’re young and pretty too.
