Richard Ayoade Explains Becoming a Comedian at Law School

“When I was at university, they had a club that does comedy that I became involved in. I was in a very privileged position in that they got to put on shows because a number of great comedians came from there, like John Cleese and Stephen Fry. I just had an opportunity as a result of that. It was never brilliantly disposed at all. I’m so not a funny person. I’m as funny as I’ve ever been, which is not funny.”
Richard Ayoade on how he went from studying law at Cambridge to star in movies with Ben Stiller and Jonah Hill.
