A 6-year-old West Babylon girl gave comedian Tiffany Haddish some hilarious advice Sunday on the second episode of ABC’s newly rebooted variety show Kids Say The Darndest Things.
Lauren Rao and two other 6 year old girls sipped Shirley Temples with Haddish, who asked the kids for help reconciling with an estranged friend in a segment dubbed Six in The City. Their conversation was interrupted when the friend texts a bunch of emojis to Haddish, who asks the kids to translate the message.
“It means that there’s a party for you, nerd,” Rao told Haddish, drawing laughs from the live studio audience. When Haddish asks the group if she should still should reconcile after the friend intentionally posted an unflattering photo of the comedian on Instagram, Rao replied: “Don’t even be her friend anymore. She’s trying to bully you!”
Haddish hosts and executive produces a new iteration of the show in which she interacts with real kids and plays off their innocently entertaining points of view. The new version features a mix of in-studio segments and taped pieces from across the country.
Bill Cosby hosted the prior version of the show from 1998 to 2000. The show is based on a feature of the same name that appeared on Art Linkletter’s House Party from 1945 to 1967.
Kids Say The Darndest Things airs 8 p.m. Sundays on ABC. Episodes can also be viewed on ABC.com, the ABC app and Hulu.
