“This is so cool!”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

I took my family to Esther's--it has been around since forever, my first visit was in 1986 and it had been around for a while even back then. The content is constantly being updated, and this time featured a magician and a mini-mystery in addition to the usual topical and political humor. An Austin original, a gem on 6th street. comparable to Second City in Chicago--highly recommended.

“Hilarious, creative and full of surprises!”
Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

We visited Austin for my husband's birthday and Esther's Follies was a great addition to our trip. Great humor. Creative sketches. Enjoyed the magician. And being dog lovers, the pups in the show sealed the deal.

“Awesome show”
Reviewed May 4, 2013 via mobile

I was a bit apprehensive about this place but it was awesome! The show was great and the jokes were hilarious. Don't sit in the aisle or front row cause you will get picked to go up and help. This show is awesome for anyone who doesn't get offended easily. They make fun of republicans,democrats alike. The magician is pretty darn awesome, I still don't understand how they make people disappear, or float in air. All the actors are hilarious and really energetic! This place is located right on sixth street so after the show go have a drink! The only downside to this place was that the bartender was really rude! Oh and I wouldn't recommend bringing kids to this, the jokes can get dirty.

“What a hoot”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

Kind of a dated show but still lots of fun--especially if you go with some crazy friends and have a few drinks while there!
