NBC funnywomen Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will host the Golden Globes next year.

The gig will reunite the "SNL" alums. Already familiar with the ceremony with their respective TV shows — Fey is the creator and star of "30 Rock," which bids farewell this season, and Amy Poehler stars in "Parks and Recreation" — the friends will impart their comic talents as hosts of the movie and television fete.

“Having both Tina Fey and Amy Poehler on board to host this year’s festivities is a major coup,” said Paul Telegdy, president of alternative and late night programming, NBC Entertainment. “Tina and Amy have a proven chemistry and comedic timing from their many years together on 'SNL' to their successful co-starring roles in 'Baby Mama.' ”

Next year's event will be the first to take place after the purchase of Dick Clark Productions, the program's longtime producer,  by Guggenheim Partners for nearly $400 million.

Ricky Gervais hosted the ceremony last year, which drew 16.9 million viewers.

The 70th annual Golden Globes will take place Jan. 13.
