Reviews

Esther Follies has been featured in the Austin Chronicle. TripAdvisors give it an average of 4.5 owl eyes and Yelpers give it an average of 4.5 stars:

  • I waffled on going to this show - I thought it was going to be a bit mundane for some reason, boy was I wrong! My husband and I laughed non-stop, the cast is great and we enjoyed every minute. The comedy, songs, bits, magic show, all very entertaining. I highly recommend it! – Amieann-H, TripAdvisor
  • The performers were great and really seemed to enjoy what they do. I loved the magic acts, the up to date humor and songs and the mocking of the people outside who come up to the glass. It's a fast paced show and will keep you entertained the whole time. - Ryan J., Yelp

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.

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.
