TRENTON, N.J.- The New Jersey Supreme Court has to decide if its okay for a city court judge to continue to work as a stand-up comic. A state ethics board ruled Vince Sicari should be barred from comedy work because the characters he depicts could confuse the public and reflect badly on the judiciary. Sicari's lawyer says the judge keeps both professions separate and does the comedy work to supplement his income. Sicari performed under the name of Vince August and appeared on network television, plus as a warm-up for "The Colbert Report." The issue before the court are his roles on the ABC show "What Would You Do?" where he's played racist or homophobic characters.
