The morning’s standouts, however, were Amy Poehler and Tina Fey, whose arrival alone prompted whoops from those in the Radio City audience. The duo garnered particularly big laughs for an exchange about how, as Poehler put it, “the colorful, feathery peacock arms” of NBC had long ago welcomed the ladies in, allowing them to reemerge into swans on the network’s air. “And like swans,” Fey cracked, “we’re mean as hell and we won’t stop pooping … out great stuff for NBC.”

Not to Be Outdone, the Comedy Stylings of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler!

Everyone’s favorite duo, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, had to follow Danson. A tall order, but they killed it.

Fey and Poehler opened by saying they’re delighted to be back at “The 150th” Golden Globes, before lamenting that it doesn’t appear award shows even need hosts anymore, with the jobs going to “high-end refrigerators” these days. “Good luck getting robots to host shows,” Fey said before Poehler reminded her of USA’s hit drama, “Mr. Robot.” Fey responded it’s “just another example of the diverse talent” on NBC.

The two also referenced their time on “SNL” and sitcoms “30 Rock” and “Parks & Recreation,” with Poehler saying they were welcomed with the network’s “feathery peacock arms” which allows them to reemerge into swans. “And like swans,” Fey added, “We’re mean as hell and we won’t stop pooping… out great stuff for NBC.”
