Andy Beckerman has been writing and performing comedy in New York City since 2009, and has written for shows like THE PETE HOLMES SHOW (TBS) and CEDRICÃ¢ÂÂS BARBER BATTLE (The CW). He also produces and hosts the popular interview podcast BEGINNINGS about the creative origins of writers and performers. From 2011 to 2013, Beginnings was also taped monthly at UCB East, and can now be found there intermittently. In addition to Beginnings, Andy also hosts the gameshow podcast SNAP IMPRESSION, where contestants are challenged to do off-the-cuff impressions of celebrities, fictional characters and historical personages, and the monthly live show In Stereo, with his almost-wife and Broad City writer Naomi Ekperigin. His first indie pilot GRUMPKIN HOLLOW was a finalist in the 2012 New York Television Festival/Comedy Central Short Pilot Competition.
