Taking Woodstock

the fact that Demetri Martin is starring in an Ang Lee movie brings me as much joy as not having to set my alarm to wake up in the morning.

that internet, is a lot of joy.

if you still aren't watching Important Things with Demetri Martin, what's the problem?

the end.

'Heathers' musical starring Kristen Bell?

The 1988 Winona Ryder dark comedy Heathers is being developed as a stage musical. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Race to Witch Mountain director Andy Fickman, who got his start in theater, has been developing the production with his Reefer Madness collaborator Kevin Murphy, who's writing the lyrics and book, and Tony-nominated Legally Blonde composer Larry O'Keefe. Earlier this week, Veronica Mars star Kristen Bell took part in a reading, playing the lead role. Whether or not she would take the role on stage is said to depend on her schedule. The musical is expected to be mounted as a regional production in 2010, then head to Broadway if successful.

an open letter

Dear Jim Gaffigan,
You made me laugh harder than Andy Daly did at Comedy Death Ray this week.
No small feat.
I heart you.


Dear Everyone,
Not going to Comedy Death Ray is bad for your life.

Laughing Matter: Comedy’s New Legends
In these tough times, America is lucky to have the community of comic talent featured here: men and women who will band together for the perfect setup, charm laughs from their audience, and seize on just about any icon—a Founding Father, a famous artist, even a V.F. cover—as ripe for gentle subversion. From Russell Brand’s Chaplin to Seth Rogen’s Frida Kahlo to an all-star update of The Honeymooners, V.F.’s photographers capture a new generation’s take on its favorite legends, and Jim Windolf figures out why their particular brand of funny fits the national mood. Plus: Behind-the-scenes video.


After appearing in Knocked Up and/or The 40-Year-Old Virgin, this quartet can now be considered summa cum laude graduates of the Judd Apatow school of comedy. Unlike so many comedy stars of the last two decades, they—and the other funny people depicted on the following pages—seem at their best when they work not as soloists but as part of a tightly knit ensemble. Say good-bye to the laughter of alienation and hello to a brand of comedy that fosters a feeling of community. Rather than dominate a crowd, they conspire with the people in the audience. Their strength lies in their charm. Even Rogen. Photographed by Annie Leibovitz (in tribute to her own March 2006 cover shot) on Stage 28 at Paramount Pictures Studio Lot, Los Angeles.
