We had been thinking of going for years and finally did when we had some out of town guests. Everybody had a great time, that being said, we are all in our 50's (or close) and could relate to all of the topics. The Magician was fantastic.

Always a treat, very talented performers. Some of the humor is local and some more mainstream, but all very funny. Good to go in a group.

What a great 6th street experience. Hilarious and topical. A mix of singing, dancing, magic, and audience involvement. A lot of inside Texas humor. Gives you a real flavor for the sarcastic Austin sense of humor. Get there early to get a good seat. Highly recommend.

If you enjoy stage shows, this is a great option for a group of friends, a date or visiting relatives. There are several skits with singing and dancing. and some magic as well. The humor is corny, but clever. They do a great job of political satire without being disrespectful. The audience participation opportunities are numerous. Some Parents may find... More

Beware to the viewers on the outside looking in. This show is great for a group or for a date. It's funny and really does speak Austin. The location is perfect for continuing your evening of fun downtown.

This is one of the best shows of its kind I've ever seen. Very current material - political satire, topical humor, excellent magic, extremely creative use of a small performance space (and be sure to watch the windows on the street), talented performers, etc etc. At least as good as Capitol Steps in DC and Beach Blanket Babylon in SF....
