The venue is narrow and long. Arrive early for the best seats. The staff was very accommodating to my mother in a wheel chair. The magician was as good as I've seen. If you don't mind a little raunchy humor, you will enjoy the show.

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 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
