BIANCA DEL RIO ANNOUNCES NORTH AMERICA TOUR
Los Angeles, CA – Tuesday, May 17, 2016 - She’s back! The hilariously hateful comic known as Bianca Del Rio (aka Roy Haylock) is launching the North American leg of her latest global standup tour. Find out why the New York Times calls Bianca “the Joan Rivers of the drag world” and Joan herself called Bianca “so fresh, so smart.” Tickets for the “Not Today Satan” tour go on sale Friday, May 20th at www.thebiancadelrio.com (Australia on sale now). North America dates are organized through touring agency AEG Live. The entire tour is managed and sold by the touring division of Producer Entertainment Group (PEG), a full-service artist management and production company.
Bianca’s last standup act, “Rolodex of Hate,” toured the world with sold out shows for over a year before being ordered as an original streaming TV special by Vimeo and later, purchased for cable by Logo TV. In it she tackled the major events, people and places in her early life that shaped her into one of the world’s fastest rising insult comics. “Not Today Satan” picks up right where she left off, chronicling her adventures since winning a certain well-known drag-focused reality show, becoming “gay famous,” moving to Los Angeles and the inherent challenges of dating and making a living as a man in a dress.
Said Bianca: “when I’m not busy volunteering at the soup kitchen or knitting socks for orphans, one of my favorite pastimes is gathering the cold, huddled masses into a nice warm room, giving them shelter if only for an hour, and sharing valuable life advice from a hate guru!”

ABOUT BIANCA DEL RIO
Bianca Del Rio, the alter ego of comic Roy Haylock and season 6 winner of RuPaul's Drag Race, is a self-professed “clown in a gown.” This hilariously hateful comic is known for her foul mouth and unapologetic humor, but her victims hardly have time to feel the sting before she zips on to the next topic. Besides, Bianca is quick to point out that she's the biggest joke of all. The NY Times calls her "The Joan Rivers of the Drag World," and Joan Rivers herself called Bianca's humor "So funny! So sharp!" Based on her sold-out world comedy tour, her first standup special, “Rolodex of Hate” is now available worldwide on Vimeo and in the US on Logo TV. 2016 will see Bianca busier than ever, with the release of her first feature film “Hurricane Bianca,” the launch of a new global comedy tour and several more surprises in store.
