This was great fun. A good combination of humor, satire and magic. I thought this magician was better than The Illusionist. The Political satire was current (incorporating news that happened today) and very funny. This is a must see.

The show was awesome! We laughed a lot. It is definitely worth going to see it. Acts entail singing, dancing, and skits on as ours was political but very unbiased. There was skits on the 2016 Presidential candidates and President Obama. Everything is done with taste. Enjoyed tremendously and recommended it to my friends.

A funky Austin place that had been around for decades. Current politics both national and state are featured in satirical comedic skits. Great fun for groups or couples!

If you are looking for a different experience in Austin, go to Ester Follies! It is funny and entertaining. They have rotating skits (I do t know how often they change them) so more than likely you will never see the same two shows (there will be some same skits though). It is a variety show with comedy and magic!... More

The center of the Austin entertainment scene! For mature audiences. Political satire at its best. Don't go if you can't have your sacred cows made fun of.

Must visit Esther's at least once per year to cover the funniest comedy and magic in Austin. Be sure to make reservations in advance for the best seats.

This was my first experience at Esther's Follies and it was a fun-filled evening. Laughed for nearly 2 full hours! The Follies Family were all very funny and very talented. The magician was amazing, doing his magic right in front of you....not just card tricks but vanishing people/animals and floating objects! This is definitely an adult venue and it was... More

Esther' Follies is a must-see when visiting Austin. No matter how many times we go, there is always a fresh take on current events, and the tried and true skits never get old. It's fun to laugh yourself silly!
