Dixie Longate... say it 3 times quickly.
Dixie Longate, Dixie Longate, Dicks Elongate.
Tonight I had the honor (?) of seeing the lengendary Queen of the Tupperwear Party, Dixie Longate.
Dixie is a drag queen whose character is a southern, straight-but-not-narrow mother who sells Tupperwear at Tupperwear parties. And Dixie really does sell Tupperwear to many of the attendees of her shows.
Dixie performed at the Blue Moon and when I entered the room I saw Tupperwear brochures on all the seats! Dixie's routine has little to do with Tupperwear until the end. Mostly she talks about current events from the eyes of a partially-informed southern white lady with a no-nonsense point of view. She did manage to get 2 couples from the audience to participate in a competition to see who could rim (seal) a stack of bowls the quickest. It was entertaining and I would recommend going to see Dixie if she comes to your neck of the woods.
