As if the upcoming royal wedding weren’t enough of a draw to get up early on a Saturday, famous Saturday Night Live stars Will Ferrell and Molly Shannon will reprise their crazy roles as “broadcast legends Cord & Tish” to offer live commentary on HBO.

You don’t have to be an Anglophile to appreciate the majesty of the upcoming royal wedding — especially since this time, the prince in question is marrying a gal from this side of the pond. But HBO is making Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s nuptials on Saturday, May 19, an even more entertaining affair with their very own broadcast of the event, starring the legendary “Cord Hosenback” and “Tish Cattigan.”

Now, if you haven’t heard of Cord & Tish yet, that’s okay. They first emerged on the broadcast scene back in January for the annual Rose Parade, sporting local color and downhome charm …

That’s right. You do recognize those voices! Cord Hosenback is the alter ego of Saturday Night Live alum Will Ferrell, while Tish Cattigan, too, is played by another former SNL favorite, Molly Shannon. Fellow SNL co-star Tim Meadows will join them to cover all the wedding festivities and (basically) round out the broadcast team of our dreams.

Produced by Funny or Die (just like Cord and Tish’s coverage of the Rose Parade), the Royal Wedding Live special will air on HBO Go and HBO Now at the same time as the wedding (Saturday, May 19, at 5:30 a.m. MST).

Watch the teaser here …

One thing is for sure: Watching the big event with Cord & Tish is sure to be a kooky and entertaining experience — to say the least!
