V108: "Downton Sixby," on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon

A little while ago I got a call from the costume designer at Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, asking if there was any chance they could get ahold of a pair of imperfect Astorias, for one of their drag characters.  He told me they were doing a spoof on Downton Abbey, and, well, here it is!


You can't even see the shoes, lol, but we're pretty sure it's Edith who's wearing them!

  1. So disappointed the shoes didn't get any screen time!

  2. I suppose no one can accuse the costumer of lacking attention to detail! Also a bit bummed the shoes remained unseen.

    1. I'm hoping they show up in a future episode, if there is one :-)

  4. It could also be the dowager countess, played by A.D. Miles...since he is standing more often. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0587043/#Actor

    I really enjoyed the clip! Thanks!

    1. It could indeed. Anybody know what size shoes AD Miles wears? Then again, the production bought two pairs, so maybe they are both wearing Astorias!

  5. Brilliant! I needed this laugh today! And I'm so glad they wanted your shoes!

  6. Well, colour me geeky, but when they were talking of Kardashian jokes, I was hearing Cardasian, as in Star Trek, and wondered why in the world they would be making alien jokes. I only got it when they mentioned Kim and her Botox.

    The spoof was funny though. Wish We could have seen the shoes.
