Jimmy Fallon got some quarantine tips from some familiar faces as The Tonight Show aunts

By now, most of us are quarantine experts. We know how to keep ourselves entertained and how to stay connected to friends and families. But for those still struggling a bit, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon‘s aunts are here to help.

Jimmy Fallon has been making the most of quarantining. He had a successful run of shows produced from his home, thanks in part to a lot of help from his wife Nancy and his two daughters. Now The Tonight Show is back at 30 Rock and Fallon is making the most of life without a studio audience and conducting Zoom interviews.

So now Fallon wants to help others stay adjusted to life in lockdown. To do so, he called up The Tonight Show aunts, a trio of women that may look very familiar to Saturday Night Live fans.

Watch as Tina Fey, Rachel Dratch, and Paula Pell share some tips on how to stay in touch with family during the quarantine:

An upside of doing late-night shows via Zoom is the ability to call in people from all across the country for a conversation or sketch. Jimmy Fallon has been making the most of that while also calling in some favors from his Saturday Night Live friends.

Tina Fey worked with Fallon on SNL throughout his career and the two teamed up to reenergize “Weekend Update” in the early 2000s. Rachel Dratch was also a cast member during that time and was one half of the “Boston Teens” along with Fallon. Paula Pell worked as a writer at the show from 1995 to 2013, meaning she’s another frequent Fallon collaborator.

This probably won’t be the last time we hear from the Tonight Show aunts. Clearly, Fey, Dratch, and Pell had a lot of fun with their characters and Fallon was wise enough to get out of their way. The last time SNL alumni helped out Fallon over Zoom, they became recurring characters:
