About This Show
Las Locas Comedy is a Chicago based comedy showcase that highlights Latina/Latinx talent as well as our favorite honorary locas! A Chicago Reader recommended and Red Eye "Must See Comedy Show," Las Locas Comedy continues to perform in front of standing room only crowds and is smart, funny and always LOCA.
As the only Latina focused stand-up comedy showcase in Chicago, Las Locas Comedy has built a strong fan following since starting in early 2017 and has been selected as a Red Eye ‘Must See Comedy Event’ and Chicago Reader Recommended. In 2018, the show started running 'pop up' style in unique venues across the Chicagoland area. With amazing talent that perform at major comedy clubs, theaters, festivals and comedy showcases across the country, Las Locas Comedy offers an evening of thought provoking laughs from the area’s top female identifying comedic talent.
Las Locas Comedy strives to be culturally relevant and to shine a light on issues facing Latinas, women of color and the LGBTQIA community today. “In this current political climate and with the specific issues facing the Latina/Latinx community today, we thought it was really important to give us a voice as well as have a platform where we could discuss important current events and cultural issues through the art form of comedy,” said Las Locas Comedy producer Janice V. Rodriguez.
