Jimmy Fallon Spoofs ‘Downton Abbey’ with Help from Brooke Shields and Fred Armisen

Jimmy Fallon
NBC

What if instead of an aristocratic British family, ‘Downton Abbey‘ was about a late night talk show host with a writers’ room struggling to come up with fresh Kim Kardashian jokes? Well, Jimmy Fallon has made it so in “Downton Sixbey” an eight-minute spoof of the upstairs/downstairs drama featuring pals Brooke Shields and Fred Armisen.

Even if you’ve never seen a single episode of the critically acclaimed ITV/PBS drama, there’s just something about lowly British servants attempting to come up with new and clever ways to poke fun at Kim Kardashian’s ample derriere that’s undeniably funny.

Fallon enlisted Fred Armisen (in drag, of course) to play the Earl of Downton Sixbey’s homely daughter, Hedith with Shields as his American wife, Nora. While entertaining a foreigner, the Earl gets some alarming news regarding Carson Daly, Christina Aguilera and a hot air balloon that puts the future of his beloved Downton Sixbey in question, with an emphasis on “Quest.”

The parody is a fun little holdover as fans wait out the show’s return. Check it out below as well as the latest news on what to expect in “Downton Abbey’s” third season.
