A judge and a stand-up comedian go to the movies but they only need one ticket. Why is that? Because they are the same person!
In 2008, part time New Jersey municipal court judge, Vince Sicari (a/k/a Vince August), was ordered by the ethics commission to give up his "day" job as a stand-up comic. Sicari has appealed the ruling and the New Jersey Supreme Court heard arguments last week. Read the NY Times article here for details.
In my opinion, having a judge with a sense of humor is a plus.
