Think 'Cheers' with a redwood deck in downtown Austin. In spite of the fact that it keeps changing location -- it's moved four times in its more than 26-year history -- the Cedar Door remains an Austin mainstay, drawing a group of regulars ranging from hippies to journalists and politicos. The signature cocktail is the Mexican martini.

A "must" for Austinites and "out-of-towners" alike, this Downtown comedy club serves up a "true variety show" – an "intelligent", "outrageous" mix of "sketch comedy, musical numbers", "political satire", "local humor" and more – while an "attentive" staff serves up "not-terribly-priced" drinks; fans say that the "superlatively talented" cast "hits the funny bone every time", but advise "be sure...

You might miss a couple of the punch lines if you're not in on the latest twists and turns of local politics, but the no-holds-barred Esther's Follies doesn't spare Washington, either. It's satirical, irreverent, and very Austin. Performances are Thursday, at 8pm; Friday through Saturday, 8 and 10pm.

Better than Saturday Night Live

Esther's Follies is the best show in town for sure, and I'd place it way above anything else I've seen anywhere else in the country. Owner, Shannon Sedwick has been crafting these hilarious comedy sketches for over forty years making fun of everything you can imagine. It's always a super fun evening with a variety of entertaining comedy sketches, magic,...

Outrageously funny political satire

Average Rating

An Austin classic. Rowdy and not for children or squeamish adults, but great current event and political humor. Also a great magician/ illusionist. Be prepared to laugh until your sides hurt.

A must-see Austin Treat

Average Rating

I wind up going here on rare occasions when I have out of town visitors and each time I keep wondering why I do not think to come back more often. It's funny, witty and highly entertaining. The atmosphere is great and the staff and crew fantastic. Do not miss this.

Authentic Austin

Average Rating

We often take visitors to Esther's and is has always been a blast. Local references and political satire - but never too much of an inside joke. Thank you to the talented Esther's staff and crew for keeping this Austin gem going all these years.

Sketch comedy, musical parody and magic in this bizarrely vaudevillian show- current political and social satire with a Texas twist! A must see!
