It’s been over two weeks since Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon joined millions of Americans who are self-quarantining and working from home — with his kids just a few feet, and sometimes inches, away.
“It’s chaos, controlled chaos,” he tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue. “I’ve realized that I don’t have a quiet room in my house. Maybe I’ll have to do one episode from inside my bathroom and keep the door locked!”
After NBC suspended The Tonight Show due to coronavirus, Fallon, 45, began filming mini episodes from home, with wife Nancy behind the camera.
Says Fallon: “My wife said, ‘We’re all quarantined in the house together, this is the time, you have to put something out there. Let’s do a show from here. I’ll be the camera operator. Winnie will do the graphics, and Franny will do the music. So many charitable causes need money, so it’s a good way to get the word out.’ ”
Each night, The Tonight Show: At Home Edition highlights a different charity, including Feed America, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, National Domestic Workers Alliance, No Kid Hungry and Save the Children.
