THE STORY BEHIND TEXAS' MOST CELEBRATED COMEDY TROUPE
At forty years young, Esther’s Follies, Austin’s beloved comedy troupe, has hit icon status. In the trademark aquamarine building on Sixth and Red River, magic happens five times a week. Local author, Jesse Sublett knew that with a history that spans four decades of political change and Austin’s own development, there had to be a good story within its walls.
For over 40 years, Esther’s Follies in Austin Texas has been entertaining sold-out audiences with political satire, comedy sketches, Vegas- style magic and hilarious musical numbers. Esther’s has been hailed as “Austin’s answer to Saturday Night Live”, with sharp insightful comedy performed by talented actors, entertainers, and musicians.
