We visited in February 2017 and booked tickets for this show. We loved it! Attended with a total of 3 couples and had a great time. The live performances were so funny and on point. Loved how they engaged the passerby's with the large window at the front of the stage. This is a must see if you are in... More

We had an very enjoyable evening at Esther's Follies. The pre-show warmup was excellent, and we really liked the satirical political and current events skits. They were very timely. Ray Anderson's magic was great too, as was the part of the show that took place out on the sidewalk. All in all, a great show.

The last time I had been here was in University, so I was worried when I took my 18 year old son here if it would still be good. He loved it. We had a great night and it was current and fun. Of course then afterwards you can hang out on 6th Street.

Enjoyable satire. A unique Austin show that makes fun of itself and the rest of Texas! Some parts remain the same while others are topical.

We have family in California and every time any of them come to see us, we take them to Esther's for a fun evening out. We miss some of those actors that have left us, like Chi chi, and enjoy the new, and old acts as they happen. Every show is different, unique and funny. The drinks are not overpriced... More

Always a fun night. Make it a point to go every couple of years. That gives the Follies time for the show to change. Going any sooner and you probably see the same show. The magician is fantastic. Sit up front if you dare because sometimes there is audience participation.

Love, Love, Love Esther's Follies! I've lived here in Austin for almost 30 years, and I've been to Esther's at least once a year. It's always new and different! And they also keep the skits that are the best. Ray Anderson is fantastic! He picked my up out of my seat and sawed me in half! I still don't know... More

Went to the show while visiting Austin with a group of friends. We had a blast. It was funny and fresh comedy. They performed a variety of skits with music, magic and dancing. I laughed almost the entire time. The talent was also pretty decent for a small show. I would definitely attend again!

This show was hilarious! Timely skits to match current day news interspersed with magic acts that are very good. I would HIGHLY recommend a show here.
