You're Being Ridiculous is super excited to kick off 2018 as part of Steppenwolf's LookOut Series-Steppenwolf's performance series that presents the work of artists and companies across genre and form. We're delighted to welcome Lupe Nunez to YBR to share a story with us ... learn a little about Lupe here and get your tickets!
Along w/ being a story teller, I'm a #22q & Homeschool Dad, first generation Mexican-Chicagoan, and an IT Director at a major video game company. I've only been telling stories for a bit, but I've been fortunate enough to do shows like Grownups Read Things They Wrote As Kids, Truth Be Told, Story Lab, This Much Is True, You're Being Ridiculous and many others all over Chicago within the last year. I really dig crafting a story, getting up in front of an audience, and sharing that special moment together. I look forward to telling more stories in my own way and taking the whole experience and medium even further.
What is your favorite thing...what one thing can you not live without?
That's a tough question, man. But, if I had to pick one thing (and not people...shout out to my Wife & kid!), it would be my records. I sit back in my chair, throw on some headphones and really listen. I love being fully immersed, even getting lost in the appreciation of a good recording, an inspiring presentation or performance, a cherished memory, or a dope beat. I also really enjoy record hunting, looking for samples no one's used yet, and helping my daughter learn to appreciate and collect records too. I've been collecting records for over twenty years, no matter what's been going on, it's always been an escape...and considering what's going on (shout out to Marvin Gaye ;) today, I'm not trying to live without my escape.
