Jimmy Fallon returned to Boston, and the main thing on his mind was his last trip (and fall) in Patriots nation.

The Tonight Showhost performed at the 21st Annual Comics Come Home, a fundraising charity event held by Denis Leary and Cam Neely, at TD Garden on Saturday.

The 40-year-old comedian didn't waste any time addressing his clumsy tendencies, including his second hand injury this year, which occurred last month when he fell while receiving the Elmer Award for Excellent in Humor at Harvard University.

"I was just here two weeks [ago]. I had a great trip," Fallon told the audience. "I stayed at a lovely hotel. You may have heard of it: Mass. General?"

"I went to the ER and I said, 'I tripped holding a bottle of Jagermeister.' They said 'Okay, we have a whole waiting room for people who trip and fall with Jagermeister,'" he continued.

Fallon wasn't the only one making fun of his injuries. Leary got in on the fun by presenting the actor with some hilarious superlatives, including "Most Likely To Leave A Hockey Game With More Injuries Than The Players" and "Most Likely To Trip And Say, "Help! I'm Fallon And I Can't Get Up!"


Fallon's set ended when he was joined by Leary for a fun sing-along spoof of Chumbawamba's 1997 song, "Tubthumping."

"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 ..." the pair crooned.

Leary even gave Fallon a hard time backstage, teasing the late night talk show host for continuing to come around.

In addition to the injury at Harvard, Fallon also suffered another hand injury this year when he nearly severed a finger on his left hand over the summer.
