On top of all her other achievements, McLean is also a stand-up comedian. Again, it was passion that spurred this journey. ?I’m an diagnosed crazy person.? I’m the person making everyone laugh and I love to make people happy.? I’ve always admired people on film, particularly in comedy settings.? I’ve been taking acting classes for about a year and I felt, if I can do stand up then I would be a beast.? My thought was, what am I most afraid of and it was being judged. Hence, I needed to face judgment in a realistic manner,? she says. ?A comic is subjected to the highest degrees of vulnerability. You want to please the audience and what’s staring back at you are other people’s judgment.? What better matter to tackle than fear? I’ve learned to really depend on my own opinion, especially as it relates to me.?
