This year's annual Dallas Comedy Festival includes a name you most likely don't know, but should: Saffron Herndon.

Saffron is a 10-year-old stand-up comedian who's been performing around Dallas for a couple years. Check out her video below (and this cool one from the Dallas Observer) and you'll see she's no gimmick: The kid has some strong comic timing. 

She's kicking off Tuesday evening's lineup at the festival at the Dallas Comedy House, with her set starting at 7 p.m. Tuesday's headliner is Dallas comic Aaron Aryanpur.
