“Are you ready for me to be a nasty, hateful c**t?”
The Meth Lab is fast becoming a premiere venue to catch international drag royalty. Hostess Meth verified herself as a prestigious producer when successfully booking “Boy Is A Bottom” singers DWV back in January. The Drag Queens of London
star has since catered for all drag fans by booking appearances from a variety of queens. From quirky acts like Tammy Brown to crowd pleasing RuPaul’s Drag Race
fan favourite, Latrice Royale.
The Familyyy Fierce were on top form last night as hurricane Bianca hit Camden. Managing the queue (which was bigger than Laganja Estranja’s ego,) was everyone’s favourite door whore, Ruby Wednesday. Fresh from Drag Queens of London
her witty banter set the tone for the night as the excitable crowd entered the intimate venue.
Warming the crowd, Meth took to the stage sporting drag prom queen realness. Wearing a sparkly purple gown she surprised the audience with her stream less mash up of movie sound bites incorporated into Meredith Brooks’ “I'm A Bitch”. Whilst lip syncing for her life, the bitchy quotes from Mean Girls
and The Devil Wears Prada
got the audience prepared for Bianca’s bitchy banter.
Before meeting the Rupaul’s Drag Race
season six champion guests were also entertained by fabulous performances from “tranny with a fanny” Holestar who performed her catchy anthem “Queen Of Fucking Everything”. Also recent Meth Lab Ball winner, Tiffany Diamanté performed “I Will Swallow Him,” an un-heavenly version of the Sister Act
soundtrack. Rounding off the support was the hilarious Myra Du Bois whose lack of lip syncing to “I Know Him So Well” had the crowd in stitches.
Taking to the stage for the first time in London, Bianca slayed the audience with her razor sharp wit. In just the first few minutes she had already thrown shade at her fellow ex contestants Gia Gunn and Darienne Lake. Bianca’s show is full on stand-up comedy; you won’t find any cabaret routines or jazz hands. As she said she didn’t need to lip sync on the show so why start now?
Bianca’s blunt humour is suited to a British audience who are capable of laughing even when she not only crosses the line, but happily tramples all over it with an eight inch stiletto. This is demonstrated as four audience members are invited on stage to basically be demolished by hurricane Bianca. What Bianca does effortlessly is delivering insults and quick wit in a way that makes you love her. She’s like the nasty school teacher who you want to like you, “reading is fundamental” and the library is most definitely open.
It’s a testament to her popularity that extra dates were added as they kept selling out. Bianca will perform four sold out shows at The Meth Lab this month. Lucky fans that have bagged tickets are in for a sickening treat.

contestants sashaying their way down to Camden this year include Shangela, Adore Delano and Alaska Thunderfuck. Click to book tickets hunties
After the show we caught up with Bianca for some obligatory selfies and found that underneath her Carrie Bradshaw-esk newspaper dress beats a heart of gold. But don’t tell her we said that or she’ll come at us in the night and cut up our wigs...
