Under pressure, judge quits job to become a full-time comedian

Posted: Updated:
NEW JERSEY -

The Supreme Court of New Jersey ordered a judge to quit his side hustle.  Apparently those justices didn't like the fact that he's a stand-up comic in his spare time. 

The high court ordered Judge Vince Sicardi, who's stage name is Vince August, to get off the stage while he served on the bench. They said Sicardi's act demeans people through jokes on their religion and origin and it shows he may not be impartial.  Sicardi said he was careful never to reference being a judge or to make any lawyer jokes. 

But he quit alright- his job as a judge!
  Vince Sicardi is now a full-time comic.
