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 Michelle Buteau. Born in New Jersey to Caribbean parents, Michelle's first big break in comedy came when she was invited to participate in the HBO U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, Colo. Since then she's performed stand-up on many shows including Craig Ferguson, Totally Biased and Last Comic Standing. In addition to joke-speaking, Michelle is a voice actor on the great Adult Swim show China, IL, a human actor on the really enjoyable Fox show Enlisted and can be seen regularly on VH1's Best Week Ever.
