Get your vaccinations and prepare the cocktails because everyone’s favourite “clown in a gown”, Bianca Del Rio, is returning to Sydney with her new comedy tour Unsanitized!

Bianca Del Rio, otherwise known as Roy Haylock, is a dimple-cheeked, larger-than-life drag queen and outrageous comic who isn’t afraid to shock and offend. When it comes to insult comics, Bianca is in a class by herself. Fierce, funny and fabulous, she has sandblasted her name into the annals of pop culture on RuPaul’s Drag Race. Thanks to her snarky frankness, impeccable timing and politically incorrect humour, she became the show’s breakout star, winning its sixth season. Dubbed the “Joan Rivers of the Drag World” (New York Times), there isn’t anything Bianca is afraid to say. A self-professed “clown in a gown”, Bianca is quick to point out that she is the biggest joke of all.

Bianca recently completed her fourth global stand-up comedy tour, It’s Jester Joke. She made history during that tour by being the first drag queen to headline Carnegie Hall and Wembley Arena, selling out both venues. Del Rio 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.
