Love the Laugh-In reference.

I don't think this is tacky at all, it's a comedy issue. I don't think they should be looking stoic.

These are exactly as they should be for a comedy issue. Nice to see a range of performers outside the box for VF, as opposed to another dead celebrity, or an actor/actress who has already covered the mag 1000x. These are going to look wonderful on the newsstands I'm sure.

Of course I kind of wish Judd Apatow wasn't involved...

That said, Vanity Fair is one of the magazines where the guest editor format really works. Many of their most memorable issues are the guest edited ones.

It's f*cking hilarious. Kristen Wiig can do no wrong.
Chris Rock's expression is so ridiculous I love it.

This is the sort of fresh and lively cover that will turn out to be Vanity Fair's lowest-selling issue of 2013, causing them to revert to the Hollywood formula while they wait for Robert Redford and Sophia Loren to die.

^ Of course it's a joke. It's a "comedy" themed issue.

Lighten up, good grief.

What a great set of covers from Vanity Fair (and this isn't something you hear me say often). I love how they took a great cast of comedians and had fun with them rather then making it a serious set of covers. It's kinda a shame that they had Melissa McCarthy as the only female on the cover who isn't in a slinky outfit, it would have been awesome to see her something killer! I wonder if it has to do with her size or with the sort of characters she's known for playing? But I do love that it's evenly divided, gender wise, six of each, you don't see that too much in magazines.

^Oooh....okay that makes more sense! You know me though, I have to question the reasoning behind everything.

Remember Vanity Fair isn't a fashion magazine. These are fantastic covers.
Love Leslie Mann as Goldie Hawn and Kristen Wiig as Cher.
I don't know why Jerry is there since he hasn't been relevant since his show ended.
Wish it was Tina Fey instead.

Leslie Mann is lucky she's married to Apatow.
