After their electrifying coverage of the pageantry and glory of last year’s Rose Parade, Saturday Night Live alums Molly Shannon and Will Ferrell will return as “Cord and Tish,” or Cord Hosenbeck and Tish Cattigan, to host the 2019 Rose Parade — and it’s going everywhere on New Year’s Day, Monday, January 1, 2019 at 8:00 a.m.
The live simulcast event will be on FunnyOrDie.com, Twitch, and on Funny Or Die’s social platforms, including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
“We are so excited to head back to Pasadena with Cord and Tish and our crew,” said Chris Bruss, President of Funny Or Die and Executive Producer of “The Rose Parade Hosted by Cord & Tish.” “We are excited that viewers can watch Cord and Tish across so many platforms this year, showcasing their already world renown hosting skills to a whole new set of fans,” he added.
During the 2018 Rose Parade, Cord and Tish, as “America’s favorite hosts,” premiered their partnership for the live stream carried by Amazon Prime. It was Amazon Prime’s first-ever live broadcast of the Rose Parade.
In May this year, Cord and Tish teamed up to cover Prince Harry’s and Meghan Markle’s Royal Wedding at Windsor Castle for HBO.
The Rose Parade was Shannon’s and Ferrell’s latest reunion since Saturday Night Live.
Ferrell’s character is portrayed as a frequent television and radio host and book author who had written over 30 books on physical and mental wellness, ranging from diet to dressing for success.
Shannon portrays Cattigan, a former Miss Arizona, who has also written books about relationships, co-dependency, marriage, and wellness.
In real life, Shannon was actually a Saturday Night Live cast member from 1995 to 2001 and has appeared in supporting roles in such films as “A Night at the Roxbury,” “Never Been Kissed,” “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” “Osmosis Jones,” and “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl.” In 2017, Shannon won the Film Independent Spirit Award for Best Supporting Actress in “Other People.”
The Rose Parade will be broadcast live throughout the U.S. and worldwide starting at 8 a.m. Pacific.
