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 stand-up Kyle Kinane. Kyle was raised in the suburbs of Addison, Illinois and could have very well stayed right there drinking and partying if comedy hadn't come along to wrench him out of his torpor. Since starting stand-up, Kyle's performed on a number of shows including Conan; he has his own Comedy Central Presents; and he's released two albums Death of the Party and Whiskey Icarus, both of which are great. His latest special I Liked His Old Stuff Better premiers Friday, January 23rd at midnight on Comedy Central.
