    Plus, if you haven't met me yet, you would get to meet me,

    Plus, if you haven't met me yet, you would get to meet me, Kyle, which I hear is a pretty momentous life experience! (I like to think I can be a bit funny at my own expense sometimes).

    This is a post from facebook. why he himself hears his name a pretty momentous life experience? And what does 'at one's own expense' mean?

    He was making a joke about meeting him being a momentous life experience. He was speaking "tongue-in-cheek". Being funny at one's own expense means making fun of oneself.
