'Vanity Fair' Comedy Issue: Judd Apatow To Guest-Edit

This January, "Vanity Fair" magazine will run its first-ever Comedy Issue, and has invited writer, director and producer Judd Apatow to guest-edit.

Editor Graydon Carter told VF he made the decision because, "Judd Apatow has revolutionized filmed comedy by creating scripts and cultivating a stable of actors in much the manner that Preston Sturges and Woody Allen have done in the past. I'm thrilled that he will be bringing his singular comic sensibility and players to our pages."

The issue will feature a "20-page-plus portfolio featuring a Who’s Who of today's comedy stars" and a series of group covers featuring an all-star line up of comedians.

It hits shelves December 5 in N.Y. and L.A., and December 12 everywhere else. Apatow’s newest movie, "This Is 40," will be released December 21.
