"Funnily enough, he did say he believed in democracy". [my sentence]
funnily enough is an idiomatic expression that means that what you say after it is unexpected. It can be placed at the beginning or at the end of a sentence, and not usually in the middle. It is more spoken than written. It is another way of expressing "oddly enough". It is not related to funny, ha ha. It is related to funny as odd or peculiar (see below).
He is funny enough. means: He is sufficiently funny. [ha ha OR odd]
He is rich enough. means: He is sufficiently rich.
