Ahmadinejad takes stand-up routine on the road

After addressing the UN General Assembly in New York yesterday, Iranian President Ahmadinejad held a press conference where he elaborated on a point he raised during his Columbia University speech claiming that there are no homosexuals in Iran:

Ahmadinejad later reiterated that he knows of no homosexuals in Iran - but wouldn't mind knowing where they are. "Give me an address so we are also aware of what happens in Iran," he said during a news conference after his speech.
I'm assuming that this was an attempt at a joke. Hilarious, coming from the president of a country that executes homosexuals.

I would like to know if anyone in the audience laughed.
