This is our 3rd visit to Esther's and never disappointing. Several in our group of 8 had never been. We all laughed out loud all through the show, which is fast paced and filled with current event humor and magic.

We went back for the second time recently. As always, the political arena is the setting for the show. And, right now couldn't have been a better time with Hillary and Trump going at it. Extreme satire on both sides. It's fun, it's raunchy and,...More

Whether it would be comedy with a twist if fun both for current, popular and nostalgic anecdotes ; an enjoyable evening with either family, friends or on a date. Not exactly your mild entertainment and certainly worthwhile to attend at least one or more performances.

The show is hilarious! There's never a dull moment. The cast members are very talented. It should be on everyone's 'must see' list when in Austin.

My third visit to the show and I laughed just as hard as the other two times. I love the way they are constantly updating their material to be current and add a little lightness to a very serious world. We all need to have...More

They'll email you a confirmation that has a bar code for each ticket. We printed ours out and brought with us, but they didn't even need to scan them. Because you have reserved seats, getting there 30 minutes early is... More
