    Re: he is the most fun

    It's not a sentence. It doesn't start with a capital letter and end with a full stop.

    If you think that, you are on the wrong forum.

    Re: he is the most fun

    It's not clear to me which of the two previous replies the OP is referring to.

    For some speakers, especially younger ones, "fun" can be an adjective as in "He is a very fun person". If you accept that, then in your example "most" must be an adverb of degree (forming a superlative) modifying the adjective "fun".
