It's a little cramped and the chairs aren't the comfortable but this show is so damn funny you won't really notice. If you're in Austin, this is a must see.

It had been probably 20 years since my last visit, and my wife's first. This show continues to be topical, smart, funny, and extremely entertaining. And if the singing and dancing wasn't enough, you are treated to first class illusions! So if laughing and "Wow...how'd...More

Never disappointing. Great performers with up to date material to get you thinking and laughing. If you ate looking in window from street you may be on stage as actors go out and use sudewalk as part of set. Highly recommend

Small venue so every seat is a good seat. Provides a great introduction to the 'culture' of Austin. Great downtown location. Content changes regularly to keep the production fresh.

What a funny show. THis is not like Beach BLanket Babylon in San Franciso but still FUNNY. I think the best part is they play with the uncovered windows to the outside and "passer-byers" adds so much getting responses from people off the street. Very...More

The combination of magic and political satire is rare. Ester's pulls it off successfully. The venue is on 6th street. Parking is available at nearby restaurants for a fee.

My company has event here. This place serve horrible and dirty goods. They're know it business event so service is not what I crave for. Driving and park in Austin downtown is not friendly either. We will find other event is better than this place....More

I've been to Esther's Follies shows about seven times in the past four years and still love their shows. Shows are very funny and entertaining for a variety of age groups. Great place to take family and friends when they visit Austin.

This place is amazing. All the comedians are very talented and hilarious. The place is not very big, and this is great because we are very close to the stage and the action. Awesome way to start a great down town evening/night.

I purchased reserved seats online. Do they email a confirmation and tickets or do I pick up at the box office the night of the performance? If so, how much time before the show should I come?

They'll email you a confirmation that has a bar code for each ticket. We printed ours out and brought with us, but they didn't even need to scan them. Because you have reserved seats, getting there 30 minutes early is... More
