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.

The original conversation:

We celebrate diversity and inclusion and aim to create a space where our performers can share their amazing talent with an open-minded and accepting audience. Come see what Las Locas Comedy is about!

“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.

"I never laughed so hard, so whole-heartedly and soul-fillingly. As a 1/2 Mexican, 1/2 Puerto Rican woman, I felt at home with Las Locas and connected to each of their (hilarious) stories of growing up and living in Chicago. From sweet, to jaded, to raunchy, they all shared a piece of themselves and had the crowd laughing the night away. I can't wait to see them again. Next time, I'm taking my hubby, so he can understand what it means to feel Loca."
