Amazon is teaming with Funny or Die on a live stream of the 2018 Rose Parade hosted by Cord Hosenbeck and Tish Cattigan — but wait. On a closer look you might recognize the “longtime hosting duo” as Saturday Night Live alums Will Ferrell and Molly Shannon.
“Cord and Tish” announced The 2018 Rose Parade Hosted by Cord & Tish today in a video (see above). The event will stream live on Amazon Prime Video on New Year’s Day, Monday, January 1, 2018 at 8 AM PT/11 AM ET.
“Tish and I wait all year for this and this year it’s going to be the biggest, the best, the most fun parade ever!” said Cord. “Pasadena in January! I wouldn’t miss it for the world!” added Tish.
Hosenbeck and Cattigan are no strangers to the New Year’s Day event, having covered it for the past 25 years for a local TV station.
“We are honored to work with Amazon Prime Video on this exciting broadcast,” said Tournament of Roses President, Lance Tibbet.
“Cord and Tish are parade legends, beloved the world over, and it was such a coup for us to steal them away to Amazon Prime Video for their first-ever live-streamed parade,” said Heather Schuster, Head of Unscripted, Amazon Originals. “We’re excited to bring Prime members this unprecedented live event from these veteran parade commentators.”
Hosenbeck is a frequent television and radio host dedicated to physical and mental wellness. He has authored over 30 books on subjects ranging from diet to dressing for success.
Cattigan, a former Miss Arizona, has written books about relationships, co-dependency, marriage and wellness. She’s also known for her two-show stint as Assistant D.A. Keller on L.A. Law.
