Don't miss this. It is only about an hour or so and so funny. If you are easily offended - don't go but if you enjoy politically incorrect and adult humor - this is the place for you. There is also a magician between acts...More

This was the most entertainment for the least cost we have seen in a long time. The show was fast paced, topical, and magical. The outside of the building doesn't draw you in but going to the show was the hit of the night. There...More

This comedy show is a must see in Austin. We had reserved seating but there isn't a bad seat in the venue. The show was very professionally done, very entertaining. If you sit near the front of the stage be prepared to be a participant...More

This was our 2nd trip to Esther's.. and it was fresh, relevant and downright hysterical! The acts are tailored to the current headlines and that spoof on both Dems and Republicans. The cast is a group of funny, talented people who are just some joe...More

Remember back when SNL was funny? Well, this troupe still is. IT may not be national in scope, but it is chock full of relevant, witty, up to date humor, with a lot focused on Texas Politics and happenings. Even if your not from Texas,...More

I have been coming here since I was a student at the University of Texas in the late 70s. It's fun to see some of the same numbers for 40 years, mixed in with the almost up-to-the-minute political and current events satire. Talented entertainers without...More

First time visiting Esther's Follies. My former boss who lived in Texas told me about this place 10+ years ago. He told me how funny it was. I was some what cautious because I was afraid in my mind I was expecting too much. How...More

Another great time at Esther's Follies. Current news delivered through skits or songs that will make you laugh until your cheeks hurt. Clean humor and not raunchy, so take the in laws and your teens (if they follow current events). Funniest time you'll have in...More

We were supposed to go to the Escape Game but they sold our room to another group (seriously disappointing) and luckily one of our friends suggested Esther's Follies. I am SO glad that he did!!!! We laughed until our stomachs hurt. This was a fantastic...More

We took our 16 year olds. I’m not sure they got the humor too much since the humor is mostly based on local, national, and international politics. The show is not raunchy like I thought it would be and there are magic shows... More
