Continuing a tradition of more than 25 years, the Esther's Follies troupe fashions a lively and charismatic variety show out of music, magic, and comedy, wowing visitors and Austin Chronicle critics alike. Vaudevillian in nature, the production busts guts in record speed with satirical quips on current events; relevant parodies; and high-stepping, fast-paced comedy sketches. Resident magician Ray Anderson keeps things light with levitation illusions known to dazzle crowds of hovercrafts and driftwood. As the Follies cast ignites into choral skewerings of front-page newsmakers and the ongoing campaigns of presidential hopefuls, audiences will laugh so hard that giggles come out their noses.

Esther's Follies

Although Esther's Follies' variety show of music, magic, and comedy recalls the vaudevillian entertainment of yesteryear (albeit with a more acerbic modern bent), the nostalgia goes beyond just the performances. The longstanding venue and comedy troupe was named after Esther Williams, the Golden Age starlet whose career as a professional swimmer led to numerous iconic MGM films. Posters for several of these pictures are plastered throughout the space, and an undersea mural bustling with brightly-hued coral, kaleidoscopic marine life, and even a Loch Ness monster further contributes to Esther's otherworldly, aquatic theme. The magical environment, along with the shows themselves, have wowed audiences and Austin Chronicle critics alike.
