Whether it would be comedy with a twist if fun both for current, popular and nostalgic anecdotes ; an enjoyable evening with either family, friends or on a date. Not exactly your mild entertainment and certainly worthwhile to attend at least one or more performances.

This was my second time to see Esther's Follies and it was absolute greatness both times! My first time was about 5 years ago and I remember it being really funny so I decided to try it again and I am so glad I did!...More

The show is hilarious! There's never a dull moment. The cast members are very talented. It should be on everyone's 'must see' list when in Austin.

My third visit to the show and I laughed just as hard as the other two times. I love the way they are constantly updating their material to be current and add a little lightness to a very serious world. We all need to have...More

If you like the lewd humor that you find in Saturday Night Live sketches then this show will be right up your alley. While I enjoyed the magic and much of the political humor, the rest of the humor was too over the top for...More

Humor is one of my favorite things, and often hard to get right. Esther's always does. They keep the show fresh with current events and mix in some magic. They have drinks in the back that you can take to your seat. It's a mini...More

How can anyone rate Esters less than 5 stars? Th/F/Sa shows at 8 and 10. The magician is a ton of fun and all the skits are hilarious. The show is like Saturday night live but with the occasional magic act to either wow you...More

I haven't laughed this hard in a long time. Twenty of us visited the Follies for a birthday party, ages 16 - 85. Everyone loved the show.

We try to catch an Ester's show at least once every couple of years. Being an election year, we couldn't resist bringing friends for their first time visit. We practically rolled on the floor laughing! The skits remind me of how funny SNL used to...More

I've lived in Austin for 25 years and ashamedly only been to Esthers twice, with my second visit just recently. I've been missing out on authentic original entertainment that is well worth the ticket price. Don't miss out- go to an Esther's show!

We took our 16 year olds. I’m not sure they got the humor too much since the humor is mostly based on local, national, and international politics. The show is not raunchy like I thought it would be and there are magic shows... More
