Ethics panel wants to give NJ judge's sideline comedy gig the hook2/26/2013
You've probably either seen Vince A. Sicari as a municipal judge in South Hackensack, N.J., or as Vince August, a stand-up comic in New York City and on primetime ABC. But an ethics panel wants to force August off the stage, arguing that his comedy career might "negatively affect the dignity of the Judiciary." They're mostly referring to his appearances on ABC's "Primetime: What Would You Do?" where August/Sicari played racist and homophobic characters designed to shock. But Vince has worked hard to keep his careers separate, even while working as a comic up to 250 nights a year. "I refuse to do a law joke," he says. "Superman doesn't talk about Clark Kent." The New Jersey Supreme Court is expected to hear the case this week. [Source]
