Fey and Poehler anchored Weekend Update together on SNL beginning in 2004 after Poehler replaced Jimmy Fallon behind the desk. They've continued to work together numerous times since, including by starring in the films Baby Mama and Sisters. Poehler and Fey also co-hosted the Golden Globe Awards four times, for three consecutive years from 2013 through 2015 and then again in 2021. They met at an improv theater in Chicago in 1993.

"We've been friends for over 20 years and met kind of as an arranged marriage [after we were] put on an improv team together," Poehler previously told E! News. "And we've really been on each other's teams since then in many ways."

Tina Fey & Amy Poehler: Restless Leg Tour will begin in Washington D.C. on April 28 and run through June, with further stops planned in Chicago on May 20, Boston on June 9, and Atlantic City on June 10.
