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 we talk to writer and performer Peter Grosz. Based in New York, Pete got his start in sketch and improv in Chicago with Second City and later in Amsterdam with Boom Chicago. Since then, he's written for Dave "Gruber" Allen and David Koechner's Naked Trucker show, wrote for The Colbert Report and most recently played reporter Sidney Purcell on HBO's Veep.

A few weeks ago, Pete stopped by the Wrestling Team apartment to talk with us about ripping off Stephen Wright, following your own path in comedy and the continual search for your voice. It's a hot one folks with an amazingly smart and funny guy, so blast those ear buds!
