A night with Bianca Del Rio

Last Friday, my cousin and I headed to London’s Troxy theatre near Limehouse for RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 6 winner Bianca Del Rio’s latest show, Not Today Satan.

Five rows from the stage

Filled with excitement, we arrived at the venue, of which the queue snaked around the building. We knew we had tickets for Row Y, but naively we didn’t realise it was the very last row at the very back. Being a mere 5 foot 2 and a lifelong glasses wearer, this proved to be a slight problem. The staff at the Box Office however, were so wonderful and were able to offer us tickets closer to the stage…. five rows from the front!!!

Now, I knew Bianca was going to be funny but in no way, shape or form was I prepared for the high volume of laughs that she was able to bring out of the audience. Although I was a little apprehensive, I was delighted to find that she was just as funny as when we saw her on Drag Race. In my opinion, she took the evening to the next level when she would come out with on the spot comments, which were reactions to the audience. By the end of the show, my face was aching and I had a stitch in my side.

Bianca turnt us red, too!

What I love about Bianca, is that she is not afraid to go there. No race, gender or human on this planet is safe from her Rolodex of Hate. For the almost two hours she was on stage, she made you believe everything was great with the world. Although briefly mentioned, you didn’t dwell on Trump, there were no thoughts on the shit show called Brexit. It literally was just a barrel of laughs. I can’t wait to see her perform again!

If you didn’t get a chance to see Bianca on tour, do not fear… it’s coming to DVD soon. The performance I attended was one of the shows being recorded, so who knows… I may even be in it! Be sure to keep an eye on her website for more details. With all the crap going on in the world at the moment, watching Not Today Satan is something you won’t regret.

 

One of the biggest RuPaul’s Drag Race fans you’ll ever find!

Admittedly It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything on my blog but that’s because I’ve been putting the wheels in motion for the greatest blog challenge of all time.

If you ask anyone who knows me what my favourite thing in the world is, undoubtedly they will all have the same answer: RuPaul’s Best Friend Race… I mean RuPaul’s Drag Race! Ever since one of my best friends recommended the show a few years ago, I’ve been hooked (thank goodness for Netflix!). I’ve watched seasons 1-6 repeatedly (as seasons 7 & 8 have yet to make their Netflix UK debut… Sort it out Netflix!… so have only seen those seasons once). I have most of RuPaul’s music albums, am an avid follower of the World of Wonder’s YouTube channel, have RuPaul’s book and was also lucky enough to get tickets to the London stop on this year’s BOTS tour.

Now, with All Stars 2 on the horizon, I thought it was only fitting to feature my favourite queens on my blog, going right back to where it all began. I’m hoping that over the coming weeks I’ll be able to get exclusive content from the Queen’s themselves and potentially  some (signed) merch that I will feature in a silent auction to raise money for an undecided LGBT charity.

So stay tuned to find out if I feature your favourite queens!
