ABOUT ESTHER'S FOLLIES
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.
The end result is a gorgeous 200 page coffee-table book, “The laughs, the gossip and the story behind Texas’ most celebrated comedy troupe” which is rife with photographs, backstage stories and memorabilia — the book was designed by the talented team at EmDash.
For the newcomer, tourist or long-time Austinite, Esther’s is a must-see experience. The show pokes fun at both sides of the political divide and always includes sketches of particular delight to Texans, old and new. As the city has grown and changed, so too has Esther’s which has always served as a reflection of the city.
