​Comedians Rosie O’Donnell and Amy Schumer are making eleventh-hour pushes for the Democratic candidates in next month’s crucial Senate runoff election in Georgia — as Tinseltown celebrities continue to try to turn the Peach State blue down-ballot.

Schumer, the star of “Trainwreck” and “I Feel Pretty,” will take part in a phone bank Saturday.

“Join me this weekend as I help phone bank with #Generatorcollective & #knockfordemocracy for the Jan 5th run-off election to help get @reverendwarnock & @ossoff elected to flip the Senate,” she said in a Twitter post Wednesday.

She linked to a signup list for the group Knock for Democracy.

Democrats Jon Ossoff and the Rev. Raphael Warnock are challenging incumbent GOP Sens. David Perdue and Kelly Loeffer.

The election will determine which party controls the Senate next year.

O’Donnell, who has been involved in a running feud with President Trump for years, urged her fans to donate to a turn-out-the-vote effort by former gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams.

“Alright people, we all know how important the Georgia runoffs are. #StaceysDramaClub is fundraising to help get out the vote on the ground. Chip in what you can and let’s take back the Senate from Mitch’s cold, purple hands,” she wrote on Twitter, referring to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).

A number of Hollywood liberals have hopped on the bandwagon to flip Georgia, including Alec Baldwin, George Clooney, Leonardo DiCaprio, Joaquin Phoenix and Will Smith.
