Your Guide to Apartments in 2nd Street District
If you are an Apartment-ite in Austin and are asking yourself just what to do with a night out on the town in Austin, there's really only one truly awesome and hilarious answer. If you're an Austinite and have never gone to see Eshter's Follies, you really can't call yourself an Austinite. An Austin institution for many years Eshter's Follies is sure to be one of the most entertaining and hilarious times you're likely to have in Texas's capitol.
For over 25 years, Eshter's Follies has been producing their own brand of original, gut-busting comedy, and have kept audiences entertained night after night. Eshter's Follies is a sketch comedy show in the vein of Saturday Night Live or Mad TV, only a heck of a lot funnier. Mixing in music, magic and comedy, the skits are some of the most original you're likely to ever see, with some of the funniest actors in all of Austin.
Be adequately warned that this is not for the religious, the conservatives, or those who take themselves or others too seriously. This is raunchy comedy of the best kind, throwing around jokes about sex, race, and even religion, and it doesn't pull it punches. If you walk in with an open mind, or even a dirty one, then you're guaranteed to come away with a busted gut and a smile on your face.
Running every weekend of the year, Thursday through Saturday, so any day you're downtown and find yourself without anything to do, you'll be ready for a great performance. Though many of the original cast has since taken off, two of their charter members, Shannon Sedwick and Michael Shelton, are still there to offer their own unique brand of comedy.
If you're up for a night away from the apartment, and want to laugh until your sides hurt, then there's no better place to check out than Eshter's Follies. It's one of the best times you can have in the downtown area.
