Comments from Youtube

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


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

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

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

Olavo Ataíde : give her a job already

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

Joseph Kienstra : The bowling one is so smart! So cool to see a kid exercise her creativity. She gets so happy after writing each one :)

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

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

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

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

Mark Tchadej : Turtle one had me do a spit take

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

the tube : i liked the wrecking ball one XD

Wiley : 'You caught a man, next time catch a fish though' was the best. The 'about to be squished by water' was the most telling of her age. Best of luck, Alice, and great job!

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

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

karplefropx : For the last one, i was thinking "That's not what I meant by 'we need to table this meeting'..." .. or something along those lines.

Jonathan George : The fish bowl caption was perfect!

danceswithdirt : Best one yet.

Tyler Ellis : "Don't judge"! Hahaha love this

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

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

ty12mi34 : “I think I need a seahorse.”

Alessandra Santamaría : she's precious

d3af : 2:43 is pretty deep actually. Its the same when you answer "i'm fine" to the question "how are you?" although you are pretty dead/sad inside.

uptowngirl1313 : shes hilariousss and so mature

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

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

Aiyana Carroll : She honestly killed this

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

Isaac Holzwarth : 3:20 "Not exactly what I meant by 'let's table the discussion'..."

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

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

Jack White : The fishing one-“May I interest you in some boat insurance”

Just Chilin : She’s too cute my favorite ones don’t judge haha

w Waleos : Wow just wow

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

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

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

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

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

Milagros Gimenez : I want Liza here just for the puns

Douglas Phillips : This is what happens when we tell children they're funny...they believe it.

Nick Rowe : Throw that back son its a loan shark

coldstonetgs : This is absolutely delightful! Amazingly well done!

Jack Minor : 3:03 I was gonna do “Ok bob, you want bumpers or no?”

Katia Martins : Good, Very good!!! She is socute 🌹🍃💗🌹🍃💗🌹🍃 Great hug and kisses 👼😇😗🌸
