Metaphors for laughter are often surprisingly violent, from "busting a gut" to "splitting your sides" to "tumbling down the jagged face of Joke Mountain." Break a funny bone with this GrouponLive deal to see "Tupperware Party with Dixie Longate" presented by Equality for A Cause at Fifth Avenue in Royal Oak. For $49, you get one VIP ticket (a $100 value) that includes:

  • Preferred seating in the front rows
  • A voucher for half off menu items at Fifth Avenue's restaurant. The voucher must be used before or after the show on the day of the chosen performance.

Choose from the following show dates:

  • Friday, June 15, at 7 p.m. or 9 p.m.
  • Saturday, June 16, at 7 p.m. or 9 p.m.
  • Sunday, June 17, at 3 p.m.

As of June 11, the June 15 and 16 shows at 9 p.m. and the June 17 show have been canceled. Groupon holders of those options can use their Groupons to attend the 7 p.m. shows on June 15 or 16.

In 2004, Dixie Longate was one of the top three Tupperware sellers in the country. In 2007, her sales pitch launched into an off-Broadway stage as a theatrical show. As remarkable as Dixie's sales acumen and dramaturgical dexterity may be, the most extraordinary fact of her ascension may be that Dixie does not exist. In the spirit of Stephen Colbert's fake-news political pundit or Sacha Baron Cohen's documentarian Borat, actor Kris Andersson assumes the alter ego of Dixie—a fast-talking mom from Mobile, Alabama—in a show that the New York Times ruled "part drag, part double-entendre, but somehow never downright camp."

As the audience enters the show, each member gets a name tag and prepares for Dixie's spiel on the wonders of creative food storage solutions—or "fantastic plastic crap." During the course of the show, Dixie interacts with the audience, urging them to hold hands, sing, and compete in contests to see who can fit all of their fears into a sandwich container. Strewn amongst the crowd are Tupperware catalogues that feature the latest leftover preservation products, which guests can actually buy at the show. Proceeds for the show benefit Affirmations, a Michigan nonprofit organization that promotes inclusion for all sexual orientations and gender identities.

Five15

At Five15's weekend bingo matches, players don't come to win a jackpot or to appease their grandmothers. They come for the drag queen hostesses and their good-natured abuse, adult humor, and vivacity. A rotating roster of queens includes Sabin, Carol Lee, and the acerbic comedienne Trixie Deluxxe. Clustered around round tables, sipping smoothies or chai lattes from the full coffee bar, the patrons of Drag Queen Bingo defy categorization—gay, straight, men, women, and even the occasional 90-year-old, according to the Detroit Free Press. Each patron is fair game for the hosts' humorous darts, especially when they pick up their prizes. Historically, adult-themed prizes have included mugs and T-shirts. Detroit Free Press quotes a patron as observing, "It's not my mother's bingo. It's nobody's mother's bingo."
