“Great variety show”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2012

The show we saw was basically Texas, Republican humor but they did poke fun of a lot of people. The actors were funny and the way they incorporated the 'stage' outside on 6th st was funny.

“Hilarious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2012

Esther's is a hysterically funny comedy club, satirical musical review, magic act, and skewer of everything political and societal. Unique combination of very talented people, great writing, and willingness to poke fun at virtually everything and anything. If it's been in the news lately, Esther's will lampoon it. We roared almost the entire time. Watching the passers-by on 6th Street though the windows behind the stage is nearly as much as fun as watching the show (and sometimes is part of the show). Be forewarned that the humor will on occasion be a tad coarse for younger ears. Esther's is a large part of what makes Austin Austin and shouldn't be missed. One of the highlights of our trip.

My husband and I had a wonderful time at this show. The staff was fun and full of energy. I couldn't have asked for a more pleasant experience.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2012

If you like to laugh and have fun this is definately the place. Our family has been a couple of times. Staff is unique. It keeps Austin weird. It is a DO NOT MISS in Austin Can't wait to see it again.
