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 comedians, musicians, writers and artists about their earliest creative acts and about other formative childhood experiences, and examines the many different ways a creative life can unfold.

Customer Reviews

This podcast is just the Beginning(s)...

There are plenty of interview podcasts out there, but this is one of the better, nay best ones. Andy and Mark already have a great rapport with each other, but throw in another comedian and you're in good hands. Their quick wit and silly premises are combined with really interesting stories from the interviewee instead of a boring step by step timeline of how the comedian got to where they are. Not only is it funny, but it's really neat to listen to what all these folks went through and how different each story is. Just the varying views of comedy and life in general is enough for you to listen to it. Well...go on and listen, ya silly head!

Great Premise!

Don't expect to hear the comedians telling the same story about how they were the class clown growing up. These guys get deep into what it is that drives someone to become a comedian, and the various successes and failures along the way.

Now maybe you haven't heard of one of the comedians on a given episode. Well, listen anyway. It's great insight into what it is that sets these people apart from not just non-comedy types, but also each other, famous or not.

Hey, have you heard this?

You should try hearing it! These dudes always have funny and insightful chats with some of the most respected people in comedy!
