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 Rich Fulcher. Originally on the path to become a lawyer, Rich began taking improv classes at Second City, and soon ditched his juridical goals in favor of comedy. A improv show he created called "Modern Problems in Science" took him to the UK, where he was part of some of the best comedy of the last decade, including The Mighty Boosh and his sketch show with Matt Berry Snuff Box. He's also written an amazing book called Tiny Acts of Rebellion and appeared on a ton of great US programs like Jon Benjamin Has a Van and Drunk History.
