Comedic chops and fashionably fierce queendom collide as RuPaul’s Drag Race winner Bianca Del Rio brings her It’s Jester Joke comedy tour to L.A., the city where she resides, and the last stop of her nine-month global tour. Sharing sassy tales of travels and tribulations since she became known as a TV quip queen — who’s been likened to everyone from Joan Rivers to Kathy Griffin — Del Rio’s humor covers politics, pop culture and family relationships we can all relate to. The funny lady (who was born Roy Haylock and came out of the New Orleans club scene) is making the most of her TV fame too, sharing her shameless slapstick and quirky commentary in books (Blame it on Bianca Del Rio) and films (Hurricane Bianca). But it’s on stage where she shimmers as boldly as the fabulous sequined frocks she fancies.
Theater at the Ace Hotel, 929 S. Broadway, downtown; Fri., Nov. 22, 8 p.m.; $40. axs.com/events/369705/bianca-
