Bianca Del Rio appears at The Folly, Kansas City

Legendary drag queen, comedian, actor and author Bianca Del Rio will bring her Unsanitized Comedy Tour to The Folly Theater on September 22. 

Fierce, funny and fabulous, Bianca is the all-time fan favorite and season 6 winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race. She’s been dubbed “The Joan Rivers of the Drag World” (The New York Times) and she made history on her previous global comedy tour as the first drag queen to headline Carnegie Hall and Wembley Arena - and she sold out both venues! 

This Fall, Bianca brings an all-new stand-up set on her Unsanitized Comedy Tour, many dates already sold out and new shows added due to demand.

Bianca Del Rio, otherwise known as Roy Haylock, is a dimple-cheeked, larger-than-life drag queen from New Orleans who grew up the son of immigrant parents from Cuba and Honduras. Sharp-witted and ever-talented, Bianca starred in “Hurricane Bianca” (Netflix), its sequel "Hurricane Bianca 2: From Russia with Hate” (Hulu), the Logo original television specials "Not Today Bianca” and more.

She penned a book, "Blame It On Bianca Del Rio" (Harper Collins 2018),  hosts the new Bianca Del Rio Podcast and has her own makeup remover, The Bianca Remover, a top seller on Amazon. Bianca also recently made her West End debut in the hit musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie where she plays the role of Hugo/Loco Chanelle and she returns to her role to do the UK live tour later this year. 

Bianca’s brand continues to expand with her recently launched makeup remover, The Bianca Remover, which is currently Amazon’s top selling beauty product. Among her many accomplishments, Bianca starred in the feature film Hurricane Bianca (2016) (available on Netflix), its sequel Hurricane Bianca 2: From Russia with Hate (2018) (available on Hulu), the Vimeo original comedy special Rolodex of Hate, and the Logo original television specials Not Today Bianca. Bianca has also taken her trademark wit and sharp commentary to the page in her book Blame It On Bianca Del Rio: The Expert on Nothing with an Opinion on Everything (Harper Collins 2018). She also hosts the new Bianca Del Rio Podcast.

She also has millions of fans who follow her on social media. Follow her at: @thebiancadelrio
