Vanity Fair Celebrates Funny Girls

Just a little over a year after it published an essay in which Christopher Hitchens asserted that women aren't funny, Vanity Fair has come out with an issue acknowledging the current generation of female comedians, actresses and writers who are proving that women are actually quite hilarious. (Hitchens has a rebuttal here.) The video above, taken during the photo sessions for the issue, is like girl crush central, and includes 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. Unfortunately, the lineup is a little too white. Where's Mo'nique? Or Margaret Cho? Jenna Fischer beat out both of them?

2) Will be gay or become a man for Amy Sedaris, whatever she wants

3) Oh Tina Fey, how I love you. Can we have a playdate?

5) Regardless of Sarah Silverman feelings - perfect person to play Amy Winehouse
