I loved this fast-paced show so much that I didn't want it to end! The performers are all so talented and engaged with the audience. The magic segments were often funny as well as being unbelievable -- even viewed just a few feet from the stage. The political satire was biting and extremely topical. The lyrics, singing and dancing held... More

This is like Saturday night Live when it was funny. A long time ago. Very energetic, create and spoofs everyone and everything.

First visit to Austin and this was great entertainment for an evening. If you are easily offended don't bother as nothing is off limits. Very fun night.

I heard it was one of the best things to see while visiting Austin. Well it wasn't! So odd...they went back and forth with Trump bashing and then a magic skit. I will not recommend to anyone. Very disappointed and a waste of money!

We recently visited our 24 year old son in Austin for the Mother's Day weekend. The highlight of our trip was this amazing show. It is in a small yet comfortable theatre on 6th street. The show was fast moving, relevant, and an equal opportunity smack down! It was timely, hysterical yet not too raunchy. I loved that they poked... More

Delightful. Magician is a really good showman whose acts baffled us all. His involvement of the audience was excellent. The other acts were delightfully irreverent & timely, even the risqué Vignettes .

Great show for the price! This is the only democratic city in Texas and it shows. I did not vote for democrats! These guys are funny and current. Great combination of Saturday night live like show with magic show.

There is nothing like this that includes humor, current events and a bit of Austin. One of my favorites places to go, and share with friends and family. You need a sense of humor and value sarcasm. The script is updated routinely but I wouldn't suggest hitting every weekend. The venue is small and some chairs tiered. If you sit... More

Pointed political comedy skits with a vaudeville feel, interspersed with illusions and escapes. Absolutely delightful and I'll definitely be back next time I'm in town!
