While it has been a while since I was last there, Esther's is a great night of entertainment for a great price. I would highly recommend it for out of town guests and something different.

It was fun. Crowded as it should be. A little warm inside but it was Texas heat time. Grown folks only!!

Very entertaining. Have been several times but not sure I will go again. Seating has become very crowded, small venue so quite uncomfortable. Would pay more for a ticket to have more room. .

This is an Austin staple. If you're looking for something that truly helps to "keep Austin weird", then Esther's is a must-do. The actors are fantastic and the skits fun & well-written, sparing no one regardless of political leaning, gender identity, sexual orientation...whatever. It's fun,...More

Great political humor, really creative and funny. Be sure to look out the glass window past the stage for passers by. Get there early, it sells out, plus, they have a cash bar for preshow cocktails.

They'll email you a confirmation that has a bar code for each ticket. We printed ours out and brought with us, but they didn't even need to scan them. Because you have reserved seats, getting there 30 minutes early is... More
