Watch: 10-Year-Old Amanda Bynes Does Stand-Up Comedy (VIDEO)
Remember when Amanda Bynes was a little comedy prodigy? HuffPost Live dug up this throwback video from 1996 of 10-year-old Amanda doing some full-on standup, despite being, obviously, a child.
Amanda’s performing at the Laugh Factory, which is a major Los Angeles comedy venue — it’s a big deal for adults to perform there!
“My parents are always telling me, slow down, take a breather,” she bubbles, bouncing around the stage. Maybe things aren’t so different!
It’s pretty easy to forget that Amanda’s entertainment style has always been pretty manic and zany. So while many are pointing to videos like this as the way Amanda used to be, it seems like she’s entertaining us in a similar way now — assuming her new-ish public persona is deliberate.
What do you think of Amanda Bynes then and now? Do you wish she’d stayed a kid forever?
