It’s official. I’m funny. Because John Cleese said so.

Ever since I was a kid people have told me that I was funny. Generally I’m able to make folks laugh more often than not, and people frequently ask me if I’ve ever done stand-up comedy. (The answer to that, btw is no. I may be funny but folks who do stand-up are in a whole different league.)
In any case, there are those comedic gods to whom I pay homage and genuflect (or at least double over laughing, which I’m pretty sure is the humor equivalent on that front).
Among those: Steve Martin (“wild and crazy guy” era), Chevy Chase (I have one word for you, Fletch), Steven Wright (he makes usual dry humor seem positively waterlogged), Sarah Silverman (you have to love someone who insults everyone with such a lovely smile), but the true masters of funny in my world are the brilliant men behind Monty Python and Fawlty Towers.
Their work is hallowed comedic ground for me, and so when my colleague Vinvin told me that John Cleese was going to be on Seesmic I just about passed out.
And then something remarkable happened.
John Cleese said I was funny.
He answered the question I asked him too, but he said I was funny.
The Seesmic conversation player I’ve posted here opens with John’s reply to my question.
But if you wish to watch the whole thread, you can click on the far left thumbnail on the bottom and listen to it all!

    I say just pull the trigger and go … and to be honest (and transparent) the truth is that I’m woefully bad at keeping this up to date … I go through spates and am now trying to get more rigorous and consistent … so here’s to that :)
