My wife and I were in Austin for one night in early December and we made the fortunate decision to see this show. We are lifelong New Yorkers and like to think of ourselves as fairly sophisticated consumers of entertainment. We have seen performances at the various "name" New York, Chicago and Los Angeles comedy and improv clubs, and we assumed that this show in Austin would be a "minor league" version of the shows in the "Big Cities." Boy, were we wrong!!
The show at Esther's Follies is simply GREAT!!!!!!! It is witty, clever, hilarious and very entertaining. In fact, it was the BEST show of its kind that we have ever seen. The show is a mix of topical political humor, comedic skits and magic tricks. It is fast moving and high energy. Tickets are reasonably priced. We had general admission tickets and they were fine, although I recommend that you come early since many of the seats seem to be reserved for groups. Esther's Follies is a must-see.
