LAS LOCAS COMEDY BRINGS UNAPOLOGETIC LAUGHS TO COMEDY VAULT IN BATAVIA

Las Locas Comedy Brings New Show to Comedy Vault in Batavia 

Las Locas Comedy centers predominantly Latinx and female talent in their productions across Chicagoland. They are bringing their female-centered production to the Western Suburbs, marking a bright milestone for the five-year-old independent comedy show and a meaningful step forward for Latina/x/e comedians and female comedians of all backgrounds in Chicagoland. 

Batavia, IL (May 12th, 2022) – Still beaming from an incredible start to 2022 and a return to live comedy, Las Locas Comedy announces a new showcase at Comedy Vault in Batavia, IL called Las Locas Comedy Presents: Sorry Not Sorry on Tuesday, May 17th, 2022 at 8 pm.  Aurora, IL native, KB Marion (Zanies, Laugh Factory, Still Not Friday), headlines the show with fellow unapologetic comedians Laura Hugg, Suz Ballout, Sonal Aggarwal and Jess Martínez. The showcase will be hosted by Las Locas Comedy founder Janice Rodriguez.

Las Locas Comedy Presents: Sorry Not Sorry will be at Comedy Vault on the third Tuesday of each month and will feature the best comedians in the Chicagoland area for a non-apologetic -and non-censored- show. 

In an industry where Latinas represent less than 1% of comics booked at comedy clubs across the country, Las Locas Comedy provides a platform for locas and “honorary locas” (other women and women of color) in comedy. Las Locas Comedy believes a unified front in the fight for representation creates a ripple effect in the comedy scene, propelling underrepresented talent to national comedy clubs and beyond. “In this political climate and with the specific issues facing the Latinx community and women today, we thought it was really important to give a voice to Latina talent and women comedians as well as have a platform where we could discuss important current events and cultural issues through comedy,” said Las Locas Comedy founder and producer, Janice V. Rodriguez 

Las Locas Comedy’s loyal following of “#Locas4Life” never went dark over the COVID-19 shut down either. Their first virtual show in September 2020 drew an audience of over 60 people, comparable to their consistently sold-out, in-person performances. In October 2021, Las Locas Comedy launched their showcase Chingona Comedy Hour at Laugh Factory in Chicago and successfully navigated the changing landscape of COVID closures and rules. Now in late Spring of 2022, we’re expanding and bringing fresh voices to Kane County, IL.

Las Locas Comedy and their crew of “locas” prove time and again that there is a market for comedy written by and performed by Latinas and women of all backgrounds. “It was so refreshing to see women of color on stage putting on a hilarious set and filling the room with such positive energy,” says one fan in a review on the group’s Facebook page. “It’s a must see show and I plan to spread the word and keep going to shows to give my support.”

Tickets to Las Locas Comedy Presents: Sorry Not Sorry at Comedy Vault in Batavia are available at www.LasLocasComedy.com/tickets. Follow Las Locas Comedy on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube at @laslocascomedy for more “Loca” content.
