Ryan Brooks : For the 1:22 cartoon, i was thinking ".... we're gonna throw this one back..."

ElyssaAnderson : She's the most adorable person I've ever seen ☺️

Alex Me : "I don't try to make it funny or else it's not funny." Dang, this girl is woke

Eralen00 : These are the best captions of this entire series. The fish tank one was my favorite

Laura Carías : —How's life? —The same. Genius

August Kuuskvere : It’s deeply upsetting that she is both funnier than I am and also has infinitely better handwriting.

simon wang : The "How's life?" one was just... wow so deep.

msvideos234 : She's brilliant! Let's keep an eye on her.

Olavo Ataide : give her a job already

sparksoffyou : She’s better at this than the actual comedians!


Alessandra Santamaría : she's precious

the tube : i liked the wrecking ball one XD

danceswithdirt : Best one yet.

Mark Tchadej : Turtle one had me do a spit take

osopk : "next time catch a fish, tho" was my favorite

ManOfCorn : The way she smiles after reading her caption! Kids are so pure!

Maggy Frog : she's like the only genuinely funny one in the series. the others were trying too hard.

uptowngirl1313 : shes hilariousss and so mature

ty12mi34 : “I think I need a seahorse.”

Milagros Gimenez : I want Liza here just for the puns

Dave Drapak : She is already so much funnier than I will ever be

Matthäus Jandl : Unreal how much better she is compared to the real cartoons haha

Aiyana Carroll : She honestly killed this

w Waleos : Wow just wow

Jonathan George : The fish bowl caption was perfect!

Corinne Sebastiana : Many of her captions were both funny while also subtly sociopolitical without intention. She has great wit and great intuition!

Steve27775 : 1:08 - 'Damnit, Jake, another lawyer? I told you to stop using dollars for bait.'

Billy Sweaterson : How about doing videos of people who actually know how to write a caption for the contest? Like the finalists and winners?

meloD30 : 0:05 LOL. That's cute, but... 0:31 OMG !!!

Mark Frellips : Fish tank was certainly the best. Something amazing about that childhood perspective to keep things _______

fillibustercat : I like how pleased she is with herself 😂 I hope she doesnt lose that confidence! Ever!

Randy Zeitman : "We could split a JiffyPop, it's only $32."

granitsky : Wow, she has the "comedy gene" - so naturally gifted.

Carter Long : should have just been, “how’s life?”

Spidey Fist : I dont get it. Is the New Yorker not supposed to be funny? Cause I think I have seen all of the videos in this series and have yet to find one of them amusing.

Alex : This only met the expectations I had before reading the comments. They would have you believe she's actually got some pretty decent captions. I guess they're decent for her age, but that's really not enough for me...

joecab : Good job. Alice came up with captions beating all the adults' ones. Maybe she has a point to not overthinking it.

Kevin Alterman : 1:22 Wow Son! You caught a loan shark!

Khyron9 : She wins. I laughed way louder and more than for any of the other videos in this series. Brilliant!

assmane999 : 2:30 I am ready to admit it now....I have an eating disorder.

coldstonetgs : This is absolutely delightful! Amazingly well done!

PowerfullPillow : Future meme lord ...Lady(?)

JanderVK : She beat out all of the other one so far lol. Also, for the fishing one, I would say "When politicians go fishing after Citizens United".

Jesse Taylor : Don't quit your day job, kid.

mockingbird187 : 2:01 "Whoa, look!! A wireless toaster!"

Andrew Mertes : I love them, especially the turtle one!

Dave Sturniolo : That laugh though.... OMG too cute!

Trinity Riggle : She is so funny!! Like wow!

Renee Bernard : She is so sweet and so brilliant! Looks like The New Yorker has a new hire!
