LOCKDOWN WITH LAS LOCAS AVAILABLE ON YOUTUBE

When COVID-19 hit in March of 2020, it set the entire plans of Las Locas Comedy upside down. Once we emerged from our collective shock and brain fog, we decided to start interviewing some of our favorite #locas4life to check in and talk about all the important issues of the summer of 2020 including the Black Lives Matter movement.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be uploading more of our interviews to our YouTube channel.  Not surprisingly, we’re still going through the same issues 9+ months later. Catch up and subscribe to our channel!

SEASON 2 OF LAS LOCAS LIVE STARTS 2021 WITH ALL THE LAUGHS

Las Locas Comedy is back with season 2 of Las Locas Live, our Facebook Live show that interviews some of your favorite #locas4life to talk about important and not so important issues alike. We’re excited to have a featured comedian from our October 2020 show, the hilarious Maria De La Ghetto, as our guest on a first episode of Season 2 on Thursday, January 14th, 2021 at 8pm central time.  You can view this loca interview show for FREE on Facebook Live or on Lady Laugh’s Comedy Twitch Channel.  For a Facebook reminder when we go live, please select GET REMINDER here.

Maria De La Ghetto is an LA-based comedian, born in the Philippines, but raised in Highland Park, a neighborhood in North East Los Angeles. Growing up half Filipino and half Mexican made for an interesting upbringing because everyone thought she was Hawaiian. Her comedy is a collection of experiences from navigating being a misfit in minority groups to being the fat kid in class. She’s performed at San Diego clubs such as Mad House Comedy Club and The Comedy Palace, and in LA Comedy Clubs such as the Flappers Comedy Club and Haha Comedy Cafe. She is currently part of The Misfit Toys Comedy Studio, a studio that focuses on promoting women in comedy. She co-hosts a weekly live show every Thursday at 2pm PST with the Misfit Toys.

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.

OUR 1ST ZOOM SHOW WAS FUEGO!

Latinx Online Comedy

OUR 1ST ZOOM SHOW WAS FUEGO!

Latinx Online Comedy

When life gives you a worldwide pandemic- well you just adapt! I never thought we would a) do a live comedy show online and b) actually have people like it! But we did both on our first live Zoom show!

We’re still feeling all the feels from our first online live comedy show- ¡The Still On Lockdown Show!  on August 1st, 2020. You didn’t even have to get dressed! The online Zoom room was over the top fuego 🔥 and it was an EXTRA loca night of comedy from your favorite Latina/Latinx comedians and our honorary #locas4life.  A special thank you to our performers, and event guests for their laughter and interaction. You really made our first online show a success!

To all of our Loca fans who have come to see our show again and brought someone new…or to our newcomers…we’re so happy to have had you at the show! We couldn’t have done it without our LOCA performers. Please follow them on social media so you can see their next performance!
