Beginnings with Andy Beckerman - 1614

(Sketch) New York, NY

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, filmmakers and artists about their earliest creative experiences and what their childhoods were like. Situated halfway between the light breeziness of Who Charted? and the neurotic psychoanalysis of WTF, Beginnings is fun, silly and informative!
His co-host for this episode will be stand-up Naomi Ekperigin, who is currently working on Comedy Central's Broad City.


Andy Beckerman has been writing and performing comedy in New York City since 2009. He writes for music magazines like Dusted and comedy sites like AdultSwim.com and Splitsider, and writes and produces short films and independent pilots, which include Time Pranx; Glen, From Another Dimension; and with Beginnings co-creator Mark Bisi, Grumpkin Hollow, a finalist in the 2012 NY Television Festival/Comedy Central Short Pilot Competition. Beginnings was part of the Earwolf Challenge on Scott Aukerman's Earwolf podcast network, and starting in February 2012, it became a monthly feature at the UCB's East Village theatre. Beginnings was also an official selection of the inaugural NYC Podfest in Jan. 2013.
