LAS LOCAS COMEDY STEPS UP TO THE NATIONAL STAGE IN A WORLD OF VIRTUAL COMEDY

While the move to virtual stand up comedy during the COVID-19 pandemic has been met with both praise and skepticism, Las Locas Comedy is taking advantage of opportunities that the physical boundaries of a “normal” world do not allow.

Chicago, IL – Las Locas Comedy, in partnership with Lady Laughs Comedy (Madison, WI), showcases Latina talent from across the country with Las Locas Comedy Presents: ¡La Calavera Show! on Saturday, October 17th at 8 pm (Central Time) at LadyLaughsComedy.com/LasLocasComedy. Chicago staple, Melissa Duprey (SEXomedy, Brown Girls), headlines this special edition of Las Locas Comedy.

Founder and producer, Janice V. Rodriguez, believes it is imperative to keep moving forward despite, and sometimes in spite of, the limitations caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. “I think it is more important than ever that we’re out here making people laugh while continuing to talk about important issues. Embracing the online format has allowed us to reach more people in different areas across the U.S. and stay active in the community versus just going dark because we can’t meet in person. It’s important that we’re still talking to our community through comedy,” said Rodriguez.

Their loyal following of “#Locas4Life” have not gone dark either and their efforts to adapt to the new normal have paid off. On September 19th, Las Locas Comedy Presents: The Real Cinco de Mayo Show drew an audience of over 60 people, comparable to in-person performances, and raised over $300 for Enlace Chicago in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month.

Bringing Las Locas Comedy to a national audience with talent scouted from New York to LA is the latest in their digital transformation. Amy Colon (New Jersey/New York), Maria De La Ghetto (Los Angeles, CA), Crist Guzman (Dallas, TX), and Aniria Turney (Tampa, FL) join Duprey for an incomparable lineup.

Tickets to “Las Locas Comedy Presents: ¡La Calavera Show!” and booking information are available at www.LasLocasComedy.com. Follow Las Locas Comedy on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube for more “Loca” content.
