I'm always in my friend's shadow

He's the guy people like to pick on in a joking manner and have fun with. He's just one of those guys.

Problem is that when I'm with him and we go around and talk to people, they just pay attention to him and ignore me.

In the beginning, I didn't care that much. But as time has gone on, it's gotten kind of annoying. I mean, it's like "I'm here, too" and I don't want to be standing there grinning like an idiot all the time.

If we both do something funny at the same time that we both take a part of, they just notice him/call him out, as if I was never a part of it.

One time, after one of these moments, when we were alone, he looked at me and he's like "they completely ignored you."

Has anyone dealt with this before or knows how to deal with it?
