Chabert, 41, Bennett, 42, and DeLoach, 44, also took a snap with Chase and the stars of National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, along with Wes Brown, Alicia Witt, Erin Cahill, Steve Lund and Cindy Busby.

Chase's appearance at Christmas Con comes days after he took a tumble at Shea's Performing Arts Center in Buffalo, New York, ahead of a talk about Christmas Vacation.

A rep for the actor and comedian told PEOPLE, "He took a fall at the part of the stage that was not lit well but thanks to all his falls on SNL, it was like riding a bike again. Just a little boo-boo. All good."

In video footage shared by TMZ, Chase could be seen emerging onstage in a wheelchair to applause from the crowd, but soon got up onto his feet. He then walked to the front edge of the stage where, shortly after, he fell forward and off the stage. After he was helped back up onto the stage, his wife Jayni Chase assisted him to his seat for the conversation.

"Wait wait, my watch is talking to me," Chase told the moderator after taking his seat, going on to joke, "It says, 'I see you've taken a great fall! ... Taken a hard fall.' "

After Jayni helped her husband reconfigure his watch, she joked into her own microphone with a laugh, "Otherwise they might send an ambulance."
