This 9 Y.O. Comedy Genius Is Already Slaying The New Yorker’s Caption Contest

A nine-year-old comedy genius has finally had her talents recognised, after slightly less funny second-cousin posted her New Yorker cartoon captions to Twitter and the lil suckers went viral.

Alice, 9, had her works of pure art posted to Twitter by her family member, the Emmy-nominated Jimmy Kimmel Live writer Bess Kalb.

“Everything is terrible but my cousin’s 9-year-old daughter Alice has been quietly and masterfully slaying the New Yorker’s caption contest and it’s pure delight,” she wrote.

Bess says Alice grabs every issue before her mum can get a hold of it and fills them in.

“There are so many,” she tweeted, “and every single one of them is perfect.”

Personally, I’m a huge fan of Alice’s earlier work (2017).

The original post has been retweeted almost 5,000 times in less than 12 hours.

“I am a professional joke writer for a professional TV show and I truly can’t touch any of this,” said Bess. “Thank you for being as obsessed with Alice as our family is!”

Alice is, apparently, stoked with people’s reactions to her work.

“She’s freaking out with joy at your comments – I’m sending the screenshots to her mum,” said Bess.

Honestly, this is just the best and most pure thing on the internet.

Too see more of Alice’s genius work, head on over to Bess’ Twitter account ASAP. You will not regret it.
