Parking in Austin is always a challenge but we went to a parking garage a block down, and walked in with ease, got a drink at the bar and then enjoyed an amazing show!

This is my favorite place to go and take out of town guests. Absolutely love the show! We've been hoping to catch the Sam I Am bit but it hasn't been performed the last 5 times we've gone. Love Ray and his Father Figure act and the balancing on the disco ball. Don't care for the opening guy who plays the guitar.

From Our Editors

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.

On the production end, Esther's Follies 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. As the Follies cast ignites into choral skewerings of front-page newsmakers, audiences will laugh so hard that giggles come out their noses.
