Interview: Life lessons from Dixie from atop a mechanical bull

By John Moore

Dixie had me in 2010, when she said to me, “Well, aren’t you sweeter than poop?!”

Dixie Longate, America’s favorite Tupperware Lady, is back in her adopted city of Denver for the fourth time, having just wrapped up another run of her silly fun comedy, Dixie’s Tupperware Party.

She’s back, and she’s spicier than a habanero pepper on a Biker Jim’s Alaska Reindeer Sausage. (We visited Biker Jim’s food cart on the 16th Street Mall. I swear to Jesus that Biker Jim’s slogan is “Off the Streets and Into Your Mouth.” If ever there were a match made in heaven, It’s Biker Jim and Dixie Longate.)

Dixie has become such a favorite at the Garner Galleria Theatre that spellbound hookers, er, honchos at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts asked her to stay and develop a new play. Dixie talks real fast, so it should come as no surprise that she can say, Dixie’s Never Wear a Tube Top While Riding a Mechanical Bull and 16 Other Things I Learned While I was Drinking Last Thursday in less than three seconds flat.
