Last time Jimmy Fallon was in town, a mere two weeks ago, he took a spill that was pretty much heard all over America. While he joked about his Harvard injury on the Tonight Show, Fallon came back to Boston Saturday night for a set in Comics Come Home at TD Garden — Denis Leary and Cam Neely’s annual fundraising comedy show — only to poke more fun at himself for being accident-prone.
“I was just here two weeks [ago]. I had a great trip,’’ Fallon quipped. “I stayed at a lovely hotel. You may have heard of it: Mass. General?’’
Fallon then revealed a fresh version of his ever-popular sports superlatives (this time it was a hockey edition), only to be stood up by Leary with his own awards for Fallon:
The sketch ended with a chummy sing-along, a special Fallon-Leary rendition of Chumbawamba’s 1997 song “Tubthumping’’ with their own take on the lyrics: “I get knocked down, but I get up again, you’re never gonna keep me down … Tripping the night away, tripping the night away … I take a vodka drink, and a Jager drink, and a Jager drink … Oh, Jimmy boy, Jimmy boy …’’
(In case you missed it, Fallon’s injury in Cambridge happened when he tripped holding a bottle of Jagermeister.)
Fallon and Leary were among many other talents at the 21st annual Comics Come Home, comics like Louis CK, Ray Romano, Christine Hurley, and Lenny Clarke.
