Austin wants to "keep it weird" but with style. Esther's is the place to experience the humor and wit of its finest comics! A walk down Sixth Street after dark is an experience in itself, with bands booming stereo out of bars down both sides of the street, and natives and visitors parading. Streets are closed to traffic for big weekends like Hallowe'en and Mardi Gras when people pack streets shoulder to shoulder. There's never a dull moment inside at the show. Charlie Sheen? Michelle Obama? No matter what political embarassment befalls, no matter what pol is skewed, you will never stop laughing and marvelling at songs, skits, costumes, and Ray's magic. For a complete change of pace, stop afterwards for a drink at the elegant Driskill piano bar on the hotel's second floor.
