For some, this kind of show may seem cheesey but it is not. I was surprised by how contemporary the jokes and materials were. It is cleverly written and the time just flew. The skits, songs and magic constantly change keeping you engaged. Everyone was laughing and applauding. The staff were polite and very accommodating. Great show.

Very Funny but not for children at all. Saw some people with teenagers in the crowd & I thought it was inappropriate. I think they probably have an age limit on who can come in but even so...be weary.

We saw the good reviews on Trip Advisor and we had a restaurant server who also recommended this show. It is really funny and a great location on 6th street.

One of the hippest venues in Austin - always edgy and entertaining. You never know what you will get but there will be political satires, sght gags, naughty jokes and skits, and a great evening. An Austin institution - not to be missed

If you're looking for a funny, entertaining event in Austin, don't miss Esther's Follies. There's a lot of political humor, song, dance and magic tricks that also were clever and humorous. The show is fast paced and audience members (in the front 2-3 rows) are pulled into the act. We bought general admission tickets, arrived 45 minutes early and were... More

This was our favorite thing we did in Austin. A hilarious, laugh-out-loud singing and dancing and magic and comedy show. The venue was very fun and its located right on 6th street so you can walk around after the show. This is a MUST-do if you like political comedy with a liberal edge to it.

Esther's Follies has been making people laugh and have a great time for years. It's a wonderful place to take guests from out of town.
