What a funny show. THis is not like Beach BLanket Babylon in San Franciso but still FUNNY. I think the best part is they play with the uncovered windows to the outside and "passer-byers" adds so much getting responses from people off the street. Very funny show, very current, lots of talent! Worth your time for sure. You do not... More

The combination of magic and political satire is rare. Ester's pulls it off successfully. The venue is on 6th street. Parking is available at nearby restaurants for a fee.

My company has event here. This place serve horrible and dirty goods. They're know it business event so service is not what I crave for. Driving and park in Austin downtown is not friendly either.

I've been to Esther's Follies shows about seven times in the past four years and still love their shows. Shows are very funny and entertaining for a variety of age groups. Great place to take family and friends when they visit Austin.

This place is amazing. All the comedians are very talented and hilarious. The place is not very big, and this is great because we are very close to the stage and the action. Awesome way to start a great down town evening/night.

I love the fact that it's right downtown on sixth Street. We went next-door and had a drink even though esters follies does serve alcohol. We had a piece of pizza from a street vendor and then went in for the show. In addition to seeing the show, they give you with your ticket, a ticket to get into the... More

Esther's is the funniest place in Austin. If it was on TV this week it will be on Esther's stage next weekend. Funny, Fun, topical, hilarious & Magical. It's my favorite thing to do.

Esther's Follies never fails to entertain!! Esther's Follies has been around for a long time and continues to be a hit. It is worth the "parking adventure" in and around 6th street.

An Austin must do. We had a great time there. The waitstaff was extremely friendly and helpful, all the seats in the house were good, and we laughed our heads off. The jokes are always new because the topics are taken from recent news articles.

One of the funniest comedy improv shows I've ever seen. Well worth a visit, especially during the election season.
