DEDICATED TO ADVANCING THE CAREERS AND POSITIONS OF WOMEN IN THE COMEDY INDUSTRY

LOCA isn’t about hating on men, it’s about helping each other out.
— Founder Abbey Robertson

Founded in 2011 by Abbey Robertson, the Ladies of Comedy Association (LOCA) is a bi-coastal networking organization of female executives in the comedy industry.
