Saffron Herndon is only 10 years old but she’s already been performing stand-up comedy for two years, and she’s really, really good.
Herndon has grown up in comedy clubs thanks to her stand-up comedian father Steve. After years of begging him to let her give it a try, he relented and Herndon began making the open mic circuit. Her father is on hand of course to make sure the clubs are clean and covers her ears if any of the other comedians’ jokes are too unsavory for a 10-year-old.
Not only is Herndon performing her own sets — equipped with a wit you would never expect from someone barely out of elementary school — but she’s even begun hosting stand-up showcases.
