This is a great place to take visitors when they come into town or just go with wife/date. It's fun with local flavor and humor.

Non stop laughter for the show from start to finish. It was topical and fast paced throughout the entire show.

I enjoyed celebrating my birthday with an evening full of laughter! Never a dull moment. Actors/actresses did an amazing job of impersonating well-known celebrities.

Best 25.00 ever spent on entertainment! Traveled with a group of friends from Louisiana to see the 10:00pm performance on a Saturday. Witty, dirty satire with a little magic thrown in. All I can say is...make sure you hit the bathroom before taking your seat. The show is a real bladder buster!

Maybe we have gotten too old and set in our ways. The show was fast moving, however we felt some of the content was out of line with the way we feel.

Talented cast members... Great show that is geared toward current events. I also loved the magic show. Be sure to watch for passerby's in the big picture window behind the stage.

My wife and I normally like to listen to live music when we go out, but we decided to take a chance on this magic/music/comedy fusion of a show while in Austin. I'm glad we did because it was a riot. Being more on the conservative side, I was expecting it to be an overly crude show that leaned way... More

A fast paced, fun, funny evening. From skits on current events to a fun take on Dr Seus plus some excellent magic- we had a ball. It is easy to see why this show sells out.

Talent, variety, laugh till it hurts, great illusionist, witty, musical... Ok I'm running out of superlatives. That's all there is though- superlatives!!! And good popcorn and beers too.

I really was unsure about this, only because I think sometimes we all are when our parents suggest something is funny, right? I was so glad they told me about this! There were 6 of us and it was a great time. The magician joked around with my aunt, and he ended up pulling my cousin on stage to assist... More
