Saffy Herndon is getting a reality show!
Eye Opener was the first national TV show to introduce America to the (now) 11-year-old standup comic. You can take a look at our original story from September 18, 2015. Now the hilarious kid will get an even bigger platform on A&E, after they reportedly greenlit an unscripted series produced by comedian and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres.
The show will be called "Little Funny," and will follow Saffy as she gets coached by some of the biggest comedians in the world, including Chris Rock, Wanda Sykes and DeGeneres herself!
Ten episodes have been ordered, and are scheduled to premier next year.
“It’s crazy that Saffy is telling such hilarious jokes at 11 years old,” DeGeneres told Variety. “When I was 11, I was telling knock-knock jokes. To be honest, I’m still telling knock-knock jokes.”
Congratulations, Saffy! We knew you'd make it big.
