Our Next Show 

Did you miss us? We were super busy in July with different projects but now we're back with our August Showcase. We promise a LOCA lineup which will be announced soon. In the meantime: SAVE THE DATE! 

Saturday August 12th, 2017 - 8pm - Karen Marie Salon

The August Showcase 81217

What is Las Locas Comedy?

Las Locas Comedy is Chicago's only monthly comedy showcase that highlights Latina/Latinx 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 were selected as "Must-See" and "Recommended" by Red Eye and the Chicago Reader. 

Come see what Las Locas Comedy is about!
