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!
Finally made that vagina tip jar
Got to see Shania Twain with lots of access thanks to my friend Jenny who does her hair and makeup.
Bought this sexy baby. I named her Yvette.
Headlining BNW ETC stage.
Sean Bernard, AKA Timid Guy, AKA one of my favorite people, and a producer of the Twin Cities Hit Show podcast.
What I expect to be at the end of 2016.
My father put on a wig and got my CA ID for me.
Tim Mahoney was a frequent visitor on TCHS because why not
I did the “Twin Cities Hit Show Podcast” with these guys for the first 55 episodes.
When my eyes did that weird thing!
Last show for MN’s Rockstar Storytellers
On my way to some show, eye makeup on fleek, MIRITE KIDS?
I lived in Minnesota for almost 8 years!
We played the Varsity Theater!!! For like 7 people, but WE PLAYED THE VARSITY.
I moved back to CA this year. And I finally live in Los Angeles.
The Twin Cities’ Rockstar Storytellers! We stopped doing our regular shows, but we’re still pals.
Hell yeah, Babs came with me.
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.
Minnesota Fringe comes and goes… my tenth one!
Drove to CA from MN. And stayed there.
Photobombing my own picture of Bill Corbett.
From the Varsity stage, picture by Madoo. The actual show looked not too different from this.

Every Monday! I do El Cid Open Mic! I love it!
