Vanity Fair has announced that comedy’s sitting prime minister Judd Apatow will guest-edit the January issue of the magazine. This will be the magazine’s first ever comedy issue. (No, that issue with Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, and Sarah Silverman on the cover wasn’t a comedy issue. Neither was the one with Seth Rogan, Paul Rudd, et al.) Apatow is the magazine’s third guest editor, following Bono and Tom Ford, so hopefully he’s already wearing sunglasses inside as preparation.
