Kevin James makes a complete mess out of 'The Tonight Show'

On The Tonight Show, actor Kevin James took part in “The Tonight Show Fall Classic,” where James and Jimmy Fallon took turns performing their best clumsy fails.

In the first round, the guys were challenged with tripping up and falling down a staircase. James went first, performing a quick scurry up the stairs before tumbling down to a score of 25 out of 30. Next up, Fallon took his time executing the trip up the steps and then rolled down backward and forward, ending with a double fall. Unfortunately for Fallon, he only got a score of 19. However, that round was nothing compared with the chaos that was the second round, when Fallon and James attempted one of the most mundane, yet difficult, common household tasks: changing the water cooler.

James slayed the second-round fail, showing off his awesome physical comedy skills while spilling water out of the jug and all over the set, until he eventually ended up just breaking off the entire handle. But Fallon still tried to outdo him. Fallon’s moves consisted of trying to put the jug in a planter and directly into his mouth. Spoiler alert: James won again. 

In the end, the pair put their talents to the test to see which one of them could fail the best, but it all just ended up being a total mess with spaghetti and meatballs and red wine — oh, my!
