Jason Segel is so funny on How I Met Your Mother and Forgetting Sarah Marshall. When did he first realize he had a knack for comedy?
—Marcy Logan, Seattle, Wash.

“I was 6-feet-4 inches since I was 12, and I was also the only Jewish kid at a Catholic school,” says Segel, 31. “Kids would stand around me in a circle, and they would chant, ‘Ride the oaf! Ride the oaf!’ And then they would jump on my back and I would have to shake them off. I think you either become funny or a serial killer. I went with funny.”
