LATINX COMICS SHINE AT CHINGONA COMEDY HOUR AT LAUGH FACTORY CHICAGO

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

Latinx Comics Shine at Laugh Factory Chicago Chingonas Show

Las Locas Comedy centers predominantly Latinx talent in a monthly comedy showcase at Laugh Factory Chicago, 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 color in Chicago. 

Chicago, IL November 16th, 2021 – Still beaming from an incredible, jam-packed November show, Las Locas Comedy returns with another banging lineup at Laugh Factory Chicago with Las Locas Comedy Presents: Chingona Comedy Hour on Thursday, December 2nd, 2021 at 8 pm. Chicago native, Audrey Jonas (Zanies, Laugh Factory, Laughing Tap, Hoo Ha Comedy, Second City), headlines the show with fellow Chingonas Anna Lucero and honorary Chingonas, Erica Nicole Clark and Emily Ogle.

Chingona, a Mexican slang term once used against women thought to be difficult trouble makers or unladylike, is now a modern feminist battle cry among women carving their own paths without regard for those whose feathers may get ruffled along the way. 

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 chingonas and “honorary chingonas” (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 today, we thought it was really important to give a voice to Latina talent 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 provides relatable entertainment for the roughly 30% of Chicagoans that identify as Latinx. Their 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. Las Locas Comedy and their crew of “difficult trouble makers” prove time and again that there is a market for comedy written by and performed by Latinas. “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: Chingona Comedy Hour at Laugh Factory Chicago are available at www.LasLocasComedy.com/tickets. Follow Las Locas Comedy on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube at @laslocascomedy for more “Loca” content.
