LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Move over Tiffany Haddish. There may be a new host for the hit ABC show "Kids Say the Darndest Things."

Eleven-year-old Evan Freeman from Las Vegas made his second appearance on the show Sunday night. Freeman is a budding television star. The Somerset Academy 5th grader, who wants to be a comedian some day, rehearsed some jokes with his dog Buddy at his home as he and his family waited for the show to air.

📺 @CarlaNWade sat down with Freeman today. Tune in at 11 p.m. to hear about his experience.

Then as if weren't already obvious; Evan explained why he's such a natural for a show like ABC’s "Kids Say the Darndest Things."

“I learned going on that show you don’t get a script. You express what you are thinking,” Evan said. "Which I very much enjoy."

His latest appearance had him enjoying taking over Tiffany Haddish's role as host with Entertainment Tonight's Kevin Frazier interviewing him about his unexpected job coup.

"She's like really funny,” said Evan. "If you could meet the like the funniest person in front of you that would be Tiffany Haddish."

Evan auditioned in Las Vegas.

"We auditioned and I was like ‘oh cool, this will be fun. Not like I'm going to get on the show or anything," he said. “And then around a few weeks later they said, hey you get a free trip to L.A. They didn't exactly say that, but that's what it felt like."

Even though he's witty and clever for his age, he's not too precocious for a spin on his hoverboard or to be excited about kids at school seeing him on television.

“It was pretty cool to know that somebody that’s not even in my classes watched my show, or the show. Not my show. "

Not Evan’s show. At least not yet.
