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.

Wowzers! On Tuesday, July 10th we hosted another patented Beginnings: Live at UCB East, and what a doozy it was! We had Dapwell, hypeman for the hip hop group Das Racist as well as Das Racist labelmate Lakutis. Nick Vatterott, a stand-up who's been on Conan and Jimmy Fallon (as well as his own Comedy Central Half Hour) joined us as well, but that's not all! Ali Wong - from Chelsea Lately, The Tonight Show, Are You There, Chelsea? and the new Oliver Stone film Savages - told some fantastic stories about childhood painting and figure skating. The show was weird, odd and delightful! Join us!
