Everyone’s favorite “clown in a gown”, Bianca Del Rio, is returning to the stage with a new comedy show, aptly titled “Dead Inside”. This will be the seasoned comic’s sixth, worldwide stand-up comedy tour. Bianca will be entertaining the masses with her iconic lightning-fast wit and razor-sharp tongue. Her new show will cover politics, pop culture, political correctness, current events, cancel culture, and everyday life through the eyes of someone who’s “dead inside” and finds humor in everything. As with all of her shows, there will be lots of audience interaction. When the “Joan Rivers of the Drag World” has a microphone in her hands, no one is safe!!
We will have limited dancing room for this show, which will limit the number of seats available.
