Vanity Fair’s Special All-Star Comedy Issue: Which Cover Is Your Favorite?

This coming January 2013 is Vanity Fair‘s first ever comedy issue and it’s guest edited by Judd Apatow. For the issue, Apatow brought together his most talented friends and idols to contribute, write, and pose for a 19-page Mark Seliger portfolio. There are three different covers to this issue, with four different comedians looking fabulously funny on each. I’ve included all three of them below and you can vote for which one you like best.

This is only the third time since Graydon Carter became the editor of the magazine 20 years ago that someone has been a guest editor. The last guest editor was Bono when he guest-edited the Africa issue in July of 2007. Before that, Tom Ford guest-edited a Hollywood Portfolio in March of 2006. With the comedy genre booming these days, Carter felt like it was the perfect time for such an issue and that Judd Apatow was the perfect choice for the job.

In the first cover shown above, Jim Carrey is dressed up as Evel Knievel, Maya Rudolph is doing an ancient Egyptian like Steve Martin in his King Tut days, Will Ferrell is done up like a corny cowboy, and Amy Poehler as a 60s go-go girl. Check out the other two covers below, featuring comedians like Kristin Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, and more.

In this cover, Kristen Wiig plays Cher to Ben Stiller’s Sonny, while Chris Rock does a Nipsey Russell thing and Jerry Seinfeld is decked out in a Nehru jacket.

In this cover, “the stars of Apatow’s This Is 40 are done up like famous figures of 60s- and 70s-era variety shows like Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In, with Leslie Mann in a bikini and body paint à la Goldie Hawn and Melissa McCarthy dressed as Lily Tomlin’s Edith Ann; Paul Rudd plays your oily show host, and Megan Fox is an alluring bellhop.”

    Where is Rebel Wilson? She is the next big thing in comedy.

  • Brett

    Amy Poehler looks fierce! Love her! Also…why is Megan Fox on a cover? Doesn’t she seem a bit out of her league?

  • Guðmundur

    WHAT the fock is Megan Fox doing there?

  • Van-Citay

    Where the hell is Tina Fey?! She should of been there instead of Megan Fox!

  • This is Comedy All Stars, that’s why Rebel WIlson is not there… she new, not an all star. Of course, what Megan Fox is doing there is a complete mystery. There are so many people that should be there in her place.

  • Nevermind, the reason why Megan Fox is there is because she’s starring in a Judd Apatow movie with the other people on that cover and Apatow is a guest editor for this month’s Vanity Fair. >_< His movies are annoying to me for the same reason that Adam Sandler's are annoying… the same people all together over and over and over again.
