Not too long ago, comedian Kevin Hart rode a Lyft car with Conan O'Brien, Ice Cube and a stranger. He had a pretty good time. On Tuesday's "Tonight Show," the comic got onto a roller coaster ride with Jimmy Fallon, who is taping from Universal Studios this week. The entire endeavor seemed a lot less comfortable for Hart, who has a fear of roller coastes. He joked that "I feel like I'm from 'Back to the Future.'"

After watching the segment, though, Hart couldn't stop laughing: "I've got tears in my eyes!" he exclaimed. The lesson here is that if you're a celebrity who is afraid of something, don't let Jimmy Fallon find out about it.
