Will Ferrell and Molly Shannon’s Cord Hosenbeck and Tish Cattigan will return to host the Rose Parade for Funny or Die again this year.

The duo’s chipper morning TV characters, a pair of “legendary broadcasters” who have been hosting the parade for 26 years, were last seen providing commentary on the royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle earlier this year.

“The 2019 Rose Parade Hosted by Cord & Tish” will simulcast live across Funny or Die’s website and social platforms, as well as on Twitch, on New Year’s Day at 8 a.m. PT/11 a.m. ET.

“Once again, Tish and I are delighted to be participating in the grand tradition of the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Rose Parade. We are excited for the floats, marching bands, but not the horses because I am scared of them,” said Cord.

“I’m looking forward to another gorgeous morning in Pasadena full of pageantry, camaraderie and laughter!” added Tish. “And the horses really are a problem for Cord.”

“We’re excited to continue our partnership with Funny Or Die and welcome Cord and Tish back to the broadcast booth. This collaboration enhances the entertainment value and strengthens the success of the iconic and beloved Rose Parade,” said Tournament of Roses CEO David Eads.
