We all know the stories of how creative people get into the business of creating for a living, but how did they start using their imaginations in the first place? On the Beginnings podcast, writer and performer Andy Beckerman asks well-known and up-and-coming comedians, musicians, writers and artists about their earliest creative acts and about other formative childhood experiences.

On today's show, I talk to Irish comedian Maeve Higgins. Born in Cobh, County Cork, Maeve grew up in rural Ireland and originally studied to be a photographer. Since starting stand-up in 2004, she's performed at the Edinburgh Fringe numerous times, the Melbourne International Festival, and many others. She also wrote and performed on two shows for Irish television: Naked Camera and Maeve Higgins' Fancy Vittles, and in 2012, Hachette released a book of her essays called We Have a Good Time…Don’t We?
