Bianca Del Rio Bio
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 in the annals of pop culture on RuPaul’s Drag Race. Thanks to her snarky frankness, impeccable timing, and politically incorrect humor, she became the show’s breakout star, winning its sixth season. Dubbed the “Joan Rivers of the Drag World” (The 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’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.
In the spring of 2021, Bianca announced her Unsanitized Comedy Tour, the follow up to her 2019 It’s Jester Joke stand-up tour which was her fourth global headlining comedy tour. She made history during that tour by being the first drag queen to headline Carnegie Hall and Wembley Arena, selling out both venues.
Bianca made her West End debut in the hit musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie in the role of Hugo/Loco Chanelle and she returns to her role to do the UK live tour late 2021. Bianca will reprise her role again when the musical premieres in Los Angeles for a month run in January 2022. She can also be seen in the new “Everybody’s Talking About Jamie” movie.
