Very excited about this week’s ep. with Conner O’Malley, a writer for Seth Meyers. Conner grew up in Chicago in a family of elevator mechanics, and was on the path to become an elevator mechanic himself. Hear about that, his father’s horror stories about elevator accidents and more on this week’s episode! Subscribe to the show and check the full thing out tomorrow!
This is stand-up and comedy writer Frank Conniff sitting on the couch in the Harlem studio. He is on Beginnings tomorrow for an interesting talk about how Mad Men is essentially a docudrama about his life, being a hippie in the 60s and hating school.

Oh yeah! Great episode tomorrow with Teeny, Lizzie and Katherine of the band TEEN. We talk about growing up in Canada, being a troubled teenager, and navigating creative and sibling relationships at the same time. Plus a BRAND NEW SEGMENT!

This is a picture of comedian and actor Brian Huskey. Brian was in town for the Del Close Marathon at the end of June, and came over to the Beginnings studio that Saturday afternoon for a very open talk that tinged on everything from growing up in North Carolina to sociopaths in the comedy scene to his recent divorce. He’s an awesome and very funny guy, and I’m really glad to put this one out, as I had a fantastic time talking with him! Subscribe to the show and check the full thing out tomorrow!
A very fun episode tomorrow taped live at the 16th Del Close Marathon. My guests are Phil Jackson, who you might know as a writer for Key and Peele, and Megan Neuringer, who maybe you’ve seen on @Midnight or Best Week Ever. And they couldn’t have been nicer or funnier.
