Ep. 75: Live w/ Frank Conniff, Baratunde Thurston & Jean Grae
Wrestling Team
Beginnings: Live

On the second Tuesday of every month at UCB East, two fledgling comedians talk origins with professional creators, and hopefully answer their parents’ question, “What are you doing?” This is Beginnings: Live!


Holy heck. This may be one of our favorite episodes ever. Mystery Science Theater 3000's Frank Conniff, author of the NYT bestseller How to Be Black Baratunde Thurston and hip-hop superstar Jean Grae joined us on a funseasonably warm December night at UCB East for a completely amazing live show where we talked about being forced into creative activities by our parents, berating people during phone sex and a Minneapolis Arby’s that’s afraid of a homeless man. CHECK THIS OUT!!
