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 actor and comedian Scott Thompson. Originally from Brampton, Ontario, Scott is 1/5 of the iconic sketch group The Kids in the Hall, whose show ran for five seasons. They also made the film Brain Candy, the series Death Comes to Town, and continue to tour. In addition to this, Scott has also acted on dozens and dozens of shows including The Simpsons and Tim and Eric. He also played his character Buddy Cole on the Colbert Report and was a regular on two of the best shows of the last couple decades, The Larry Sanders Show and Hannibal. Scott's comedy album Not a Fan was released last year on Comedy Dynamics, and he also wrote a book as Buddy Cole called Buddy Babylon. His latest live show Après le Déluge: The Buddy Cole Monologues is running from March 19th to the end of April here in Los Angeles at the Lyric Hyperion.
