What is Las Locas Comedy?
Las Locas Comedy is a Chicago comedy showcase that highlights Latina/Latinx comedic talent and honorary ‘locas’ per show. In this crazy political climate, we wanted to create a platform to discuss issues and challenges facing Latinas, women of color and the LGBTQIA community in a thought provoking (and hilarious!) 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 were selected as “Must-See” and “Recommended” by Red Eye and the Chicago Reader.
