Fine ladies of comedy in Vanity Fair

Wiig, Rudolph, and FeyJenna Fischer: This is one of those "I've arrived!" moments. Seriously. There's, like, little milestones... Like, being on David Letterman for the first time and then, like, being in Vanity Fair.
Chelsea Handler: ... I knew I arrived when I got my period.
Everyone: [groans and laughter]

Yeah, I know how most of our male readers are. They like their ladies funny, smart, and painfully out of their league. Well, start lurking around the magazine stands, boys, because the upcoming Vanity Fair has a new Annie Leibovitz photo spread featuring some of the funniest ladies on the scene. The impressive list boasts Sandra Bernhard, Susie Essman, Tina Fey, Jenna Fischer, Chelsea Handler, Leslie Mann, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Amy Sedaris, Sarah Silverman, Wanda Sykes, and Kristen Wiig, each of them doing very typical "Hollywood bad girl" things. I especially love Maya Rudolph's hair and how Silverman manages to do Amy Winehouse better than Amy Winehouse.

Everybody looks fantastic, all glammed up. It's interesting to think that a lot of these lovely comediennes came from backgrounds where they were made fun of for being goofy or dorky. I suggest you all start paying a little more attention to that frumpy girl in your Summer improv intensive. For more, check out this VanityFair.com behind-the-scenes video from the photo shoot. Sexy ladies cracking jokes! You know you love it.

By the way, I demand one of these for the men. A little bit of Steve Carell, Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, John Mulaney, Simon Pegg, the Flight of the Conchords boys... I could go on, but you work it out with Leibovitz, Vanity Fair.

Oh wow... Looking at this is like some weird drug where it makes you happy until its over and then you just feel sad that all you're doing right now is typing on a computer.
