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  comedian Kevin Allison. Kevin is a former member of the sketch group The State, which had a show on MTV from 1993 to 1995, and currently, he's the founder and host of Risk!, a storytelling podcast which you can find on the Maximum Fun network. Unlike a lot of other storytelling shows, Risk! encourages real, un-coached tales - some polished, some raw, some funny, others heart-wrenching. All of them are pretty darn great.
