CWFF 2017 Las Locas Comedy

What is Las Locas Comedy?

Las Locas Comedy is Chicago's only monthly comedy showcase that highlights Latina comedic talent and one honorary loca per show.  In this crazy political climate, we wanted to create a platform to discuss issues and challenges facing Latinas in a fun and thought provoking way. We celebrate diversity and inclusion and aim to create a safe space where our performers can share their amazing talents with an open-minded and accepting audience.

The original conversation:

"Wouldn't it be really cool if there was a showcase that really focused on Latina talent?"

"Yeah, that would be. We should do that. But we should also include our favorite locas- whatever ethnicity or background."

"Ok. Let's do it."

Three months into our run, we've already been selected as "Must-See" and "Recommended" by Red Eye and the Chicago Reader. 

Come see what Las Locas Comedy is about!

Thank you!

Our JUNE showcase was a smashing success! All seats filled, some people standing and everyone was laughing! What an amazing night! A special thank you to Karen Marie Salon for allowing us to use their beautiful space for our show! To all of our generous guests who gave us back all of the love we put out...thank  you! We couldn't have done it without our LOCA performers. Please follow them on social media so you can see their next performance!
