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 episode I talk to comedian and musician Tawny Newsome. Originally from California, Tawny got her start in comedy in Chicago, where she was part of the Second City Mainstage, as well as the Second City National Touring Company. More recently, she was one of the stars of the wonderful Seeso show Bajillion Dollar Propertie$ and is a recurring character on BET's The Comedy Get Down. In addition, Tawny is a fan favorite on many Earwolf podcasts including Spontaneanation and Comedy Bang Bang. On top of all this, Tawny is also a musician, recording music on her own and with a number of other bands including Mekons-founder Jon Langford's Four Lost Souls, whose self-titled album was released late last year by Bloodshot Records.
