A must see if you’re in Austin. Easy to book and reasonably priced. The show was very funny. Magic is a little corny but the magician is very funny. Enjoyed the interaction with the people walking on 6th street.

This is the 5th time we have attended. The show skits are changed up to keep up with current events. The writers have their work cut out for them with the new political fodder that is made available weekly, if not daily, these days. This...More

A musical comedy review with some magic and interaction from the street. This place was very Austin . If you have reserved seats get there a few minutes early we missed the pre show

I requested disability accommodations days in advance of the show, we showed up 45 minutes early, and argued with the staff for the next 60 minutes about the needs we communicated to them in advance. Very humiliating. We've been to Second City, improv shows in...More

Oh my goodness, this show was hilarious. My friends had reserved seating for my bachelorette party and I was pointed out in the show but thankful that was it. Our leading lady was at the door as we walked in and she was so sweet...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.
