Longtime friends and collaborators Will Ferrell and Molly Shannon are teaming up to host live coverage of the royal wedding in character as “broadcast legends” Cord Hosenbeck and Tish Cattigan. Produced by Funny or Die, The Royal Wedding Live With Cord and Tish! comes a few months after the hilarious pair hosted this year’s Rose Parade.
If the promotional clip is any indication, we’re in for a treat; Cord finds himself in what you might call, ahem, a glass case of emotion, and Ferrell and Shannon’s chemistry will make you nostalgic for their days on Saturday Night Live. The royal wedding special will air on HBO on May 19 at 7:30 a.m. ET, and it will be replayed later that day. In the meantime, we’ll just be watching and quoting Superstar to prepare ourselves.
