Ben Stiller Can’t Tell A Joke

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Ben Stiller has a shocking secret: He can’t tell a joke to save his life.

Stiller tells Parade magazine that even though he’s made his name as a comedy star, he “couldn’t tell a joke if you paid me.”

As he puts it, “I have this weird thing where I can’t remember a joke. I can’t even take the pressure of having somebody tell me a joke. I worry that I’ll laugh at the wrong thing or miss the punch line.”

Because Stiller can’t tell a joke, he’s very grateful when fans tell him he’s funny.

In his words, “I appreciate it when people tell me that I’ve made them laugh. It’s not a nuisance when somebody comes up to me on the street. It’s a really great feeling.”

Stiller’s latest movie, A Night At The Museum, opens December 22.
