Very impressive show. I was laughing the whole time. The jokes and skits are very timely. They poke fun at liberal, conservatives, and everyone else. This is one of the best things to do in Austin. The place is right on 6th street so you...More

Esther's Follies was sooo fun! Quick, smart, well-written, current and great talent. The magician knows his craft, the musician is great, and the evening goes at a fast pace. Put this on your list of fun stops when you are in Austin! Well done!

We went here on a weekend trip to Austin while enjoying Sixth Street on a Saturday night. It kept us laughing. It's a small theatre...if you're set on going, spring for the reserved seats for $5 more. Perfect location to enjoy Sixth Street before and...More

I wasn't sure what to expect and I was happily surprised. Every skit was hilarious. They can sing, make you laugh, and do magic!!!!! Such a great night in Austin!!! I recommend the reserved seats!

This was the best and most entertainment we have had for a long time!! The cast is talented and funny. The venue is small and intimate. The comedy is spot on and extremely "current" and the political satire is so well done that you can't...More

So glad we did this! I would recommend spending the extra $5 to get assigned seats. The skits were hilarious and had many unexpected twists to them! Anything political appeared to be fair game! My favorite? The “Sam I Am” skit!

The shows on a weekend are the same. However, the script is modified every week to cover different current events. Where I see the most consistency is with the magic act. But, these are always good and always enjoyed... More

It was largely a liberal crowd and liberal-oriented humor, but far less biting than a lot of what you might see on late-night television. If you ever find this sort of humor funny I expect you will enjoy the show.
