• GQ’s Got a Comedy Issue!

    GQ August_Tracy (Med Res)

    The good folks over at GQ just sent us over their latest cover for their August Comedy Issue.  I repeat braggingly: the people over at GQ just sent us a cover of their issue that has yet to hit shelves.  We didn’t swipe it like it we usually do.  All we did was wave around our hands and arms for 2 years until they finally noticed.  And noticed they did. Hopefully they’ll give us a feature on their magazine like they did with Tommy Ton or ACL. Here’s to wishful thinking.

    The issue features Tracy Morgan, Zach Galifianakis, and Paul Rudd on three covers, and highlights a couple of men and women in the funny business.

    The August “Comedy Issue” of GQ (on newsstands nationwide 7/20), features three different (and hilarious) individual covers: Paul Rudd, Zach Galifianakis, and Tracy Morgan. They all sat down with GQ to discuss what things they find to be “Never Not Funny,” inevitably developing a conversation full of laugh-out-loud one-liners, ridiculous anecdotes, and even some moments of pure profundity.

    Tracy Morgan on the importance of being uncool in order to be funny: “Cool is the enemy of funny. You can’t be cool and be funny at the same time. Only Eddie Murphy could do that.”

    …on making Obama funny: “Black people joke about it all the time. It’s a black family, so we make fun of it. ‘Michelle, where’s my cigarettes? I had a pack of Kools sitting on the DESTRUCT button!’ I just think that white people don’t want to offend him. Me, I make fun of every f*cking body. I don’t care. I never say black humor or white humor. I never put the black race on my back.”

    Zach Galifianakis on what is “never not funny”: “I think miscommunication is funny. I will never stop a conversation between two people if I’m the third party. My dad was talking to this Greek guy who was telling him about olive soap, soap made out of olives. But my dad was talking about olive soup. And my dad is like, so you put the olive soup all over your body in the shower? It was just the funniest thing.”

    …on the correlation between gaining weight and his success:
    “I used to be really cute. I could send you earlier photos where I’m stunning. But I’ve gained about twenty pounds over the past two years, and the more weight I’ve put on, the more success I’ve had. If you drew a diagram of weight gain and me getting more work, a mathematician would draw some conclusions from that.”

    Paul Rudd on how he’d make Jay Leno’s show funnier:
    “Hire Conan.”

    …on being known as funny: “I’ve never considered myself to be too much of a comedian. I’ve never considered myself to be too much of anything. I just lucked out and got to work with some really funny people, and somehow have been able to parlay it into a lot of comedies.”

    Never in my life did I image that I would see such a cover shoot in front of the GQ magazine. I would not be surprised at the fact that they did it. He has so much talent and is totally worthy of being up front too.
