“He was on the list under Jerry, but his ID has Jerome [his real first name]. They let his wife Jessica in, but he had to wait for Secret Service clearance.

Jerry Seinfeld also got to have some fun one last time with outgoing First Lady Michelle Obama. The two appeared on Wednesday Night’s “Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.” They were joined by Dave Chappelle for a game of Tonight Show Catchphrase.
