We went back for the second time recently. As always, the political arena is the setting for the show. And, right now couldn't have been a better time with Hillary and Trump going at it. Extreme satire on both sides. It's fun, it's raunchy and,...More

We have seen Second City shows, Upright Citizens Brigade and Capitol Steps and this is as good as any of these. Great variety of music, comedy and magic. The inclusion of activities seen on the street through the big picture window behind the stage adds...More

A perfect place to spend a few hours and to entertain out of town friends. The songs and skits will bring back many fond memories of days gone by. After the show, take time to enjoy the vibes of the famous 6th street, especially the...More

Whether it would be comedy with a twist if fun both for current, popular and nostalgic anecdotes ; an enjoyable evening with either family, friends or on a date. Not exactly your mild entertainment and certainly worthwhile to attend at least one or more performances.

The show is hilarious! There's never a dull moment. The cast members are very talented. It should be on everyone's 'must see' list when in Austin.

My third visit to the show and I laughed just as hard as the other two times. I love the way they are constantly updating their material to be current and add a little lightness to a very serious world. We all need to have...More

If you like the lewd humor that you find in Saturday Night Live sketches then this show will be right up your alley. While I enjoyed the magic and much of the political humor, the rest of the humor was too over the top for...More

Humor is one of my favorite things, and often hard to get right. Esther's always does. They keep the show fresh with current events and mix in some magic. They have drinks in the back that you can take to your seat. It's a mini...More
