Tina Fey falls down while trying to surprise a fan on 'The Tonight Show'

On The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Tina Fey and Fallon surprised fans who believed they were just filming messages for Fey, and it was a trip. Fans were invited to the August Wilson Theatre on Broadway — where Fey’s play, Mean Girls, is showing — to make the video, and one person in particular got quite a surprise.

As Fey was preparing to come out from behind the curtain, she yelled “Hannah” (the fan’s name), then tripped on her pants and fell. Though Fey said she really did trip, she compared it to a Carol Burnett pratfall. She proceeded to do a kind of pseudo crawl. Fallon joined her on the ground and coaxed the fan to do the same, saying, “Hannah, get down here. Hannah, get down here.”

Once Hannah got on the ground, things went from bad to worse. Fallon introduced them, “This is Tina. Tina, this is Hannah.” Fey reached for her and said, “Hannah.” “Hannah” then replied, “I’m sorry. My name is Megan.”

The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon airs weeknights at 11:35 on NBC. Watch clips and full episodes of The Tonight Show for free on Yahoo View.
