I love to go here for special occasions. I have been on New Year's Eve and for birthdays. It's a fun place to take out of town guests to see why we say keep Austin weird.

This show has been going on for decades and changes often and even daily depending on the news. I take out of town guests here regularly and they love it, as do I. This is a top notch comedy, satire, and magic/amusement show.

Comedy at its best. Standard burlesque type acts and skits. The most laughter comes from the up-to-date skits that parody current news - both political and otherwise. I always try to take out of town visitors -- Esther's Follies truly lives up to the motto...More
