My wife and I went to Esther's Follies for her Birthday last Friday. We'd been before and had enjoyed it, but this time we left with our sides hurting from laughing so hard. Equally we were awed by Ray's amazing magic tricks. What I love about Esther's is their 'no prisoners' approach to humor. They are an equal opportunity offender,... More

Been here a few times now. They keep their sketches fresh and up with the times. Their political satire is top notch, going after both sides. We took our parents one time and I have never heard my Dad laugh so hard!

We try to go to Esther's whenever there are new notable politics! It is always fun no matter what your beliefs are! They are all so clever and of course the magic show is always unforgettable!

Absolutely funny adult comedy. Mildly adult content with some audience participation. Some side splitting laughter

Esther's Follies is a hilarious show held in a small theater on 6th Street. The comedy ranges from local politics to national news in the form of music and magic. If you don't get reservations ahead of time you can buy general admission tickets (if available) and still get great seats, up close and personal.

A co-Worker booked the Thursday night show and I was reluctant to go -thinking it would be a community theater version of a stand-up show. It was actually VERY VERY good/funny. We laughed out loud and many of the routines and the pace of the show is fast so there's very little down time. The live action on 6th street... More

This show was hysterical! Traveled with four college aged young adults and every one loved the show. We would all see it again!

Going to Esther's has become our favorite way to welcome the new year. Live action on 6th street thru the picture windows right behind the stage always adds to the fun. Their set pieces--Patsy Cline, the 5 flags of Texas, Sam I Am, always earn raves. Esther's topical songs are smart, wicked and, best, funny. And magician Ray Anderson is... More

Absolutely priceless. Jaw hurt from laughing so hard. Non stop, fast moving entertainment. Great singers and performers. Excellent magician, friendly folks, all good! Bargain MUST DO first stop on 6th Street as far as I am concerned!
