British drama “Downton Abbey” has taken the U.S. by storm and with it have come a plethora of “Downton” parodies and homages. “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” recently got in on the act as well with “Downton Sixbey.”
Fallon is James, the Earl of Grantham character, surrounded by a valet, lady’s maid O’Flannigan, a Lady Violet, who is a man in drag, and Brooke Shields as his wife Nora and Fred Armisen as Lady Edith. Poor Lady Edith!
It’s one of the better parodies of the show we’ve seen, especially because it goes on for over eight minutes, so many facets of the program are able to be included. “Downton Abbey” returns to U.S. airwaves in January 2013.
