Before the vehicular disasters and bizarre tweets, Amanda Bynes was just a 10-year-old girl looking for a laugh in Hollywood, and a talented one at that. The former Nickelodeon star can be seen entertaining crowds as she adorably dances and shrugs onstage (and also ignores host Arsenio Hall's butchering of her last name -- "Burns," really?) for a stand-up routine at the Laugh Factory in Los Angeles.

Take a look for yourself at the video (from 1996) below.
