Before the “retired” Amanda Bynes was an actress, she was a 10-year-old stand-up comedian

Amanda Bynes declared on Twitter over the weekend that she had retired from acting at the tender age of 24. But before this @chicky was an actress, she showed her stage potential at the age of 10 by delivering stand-up comedy at the Laugh Factory's Comedy Camp in 1996. Despite the botched intro by Arsenio Hall, who calls her Amanda Byrnes, the 10-year-old in the Sylvester top tawt she saw a pimple, and knew how to mug and vamp for a live audience. Roll the clip!
