Here at BUST, we’re huge fans of lady who make us laugh, and we’re always on the lookout for new talent. So when we heard about Saffron Herndon, we were pretty excited. Not only is Herndon bucking stereotypes by being a female comedian, she’s also quite young. How young? Um try 10-years-old.

At only 10, Herndon is an aspiring standup comedian who writes all of her own jokes, which is more than a lot of adult comics can say. Not only is she writing original material, her material’s actually quite good and not just for kids.

Saffron Herndon hopes to follow in the footsteps of some of our fave female comedians like Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Phyllis Diller, and Aubrey Plaza. We give that list of inspirations two thumbs up.

It looks like this girl’s going places. Make sure you keep an eye on her.
