    Yes, there is wide difference.
    Somebody is funny means: He/she is a funny person who may be strange, unfriendly or difficult to understand.
    Somebody is fun means He/She is a source of fun, who provides or can be a cause of laughter/amusement

    In my opinion, I think they have same meaning if funny means to be humorous, enjoyable. Moreover, I usually see "fun" when we have conversation daily.

    Re: fun and funny

    They are different: funny means amusing, whereas fun means pleasant and entertaining, though not necessarily through humour. Good at football is another way of being fun.
