This comedy show is a must see in Austin. We had reserved seating but there isn't a bad seat in the venue. The show was very professionally done, very entertaining. If you sit near the front of the stage be prepared to be a participant...More

This was our 2nd trip to Esther's.. and it was fresh, relevant and downright hysterical! The acts are tailored to the current headlines and that spoof on both Dems and Republicans. The cast is a group of funny, talented people who are just some joe...More

Remember back when SNL was funny? Well, this troupe still is. IT may not be national in scope, but it is chock full of relevant, witty, up to date humor, with a lot focused on Texas Politics and happenings. Even if your not from Texas,...More

Another great time at Esther's Follies. Current news delivered through skits or songs that will make you laugh until your cheeks hurt. Clean humor and not raunchy, so take the in laws and your teens (if they follow current events). Funniest time you'll have in...More

6th time to Esters Follies. Always bring visitors to Texas. Never a complaint. Make sure to get reserved seating. My favorite is middle section, middle seating. Book in advance.

We got tickets for this show without knowing a lot about Texas or Austin. What a great surprise. My 2 sons (young adults) laughed and laughed. The humor was relevant, the magic was fun and the cast was so talented. Wish we had something like...More

If you're planning a trip to Austin, you have to visit 6th Street. And, if you're going to 6th Street, you have to go to Esther's Follies. Well worth the price! Super entertaining! Never gets old. Comedy, slapstick, vaudeville-all in one show. Lots of great...More
