NY Post: Attorney, state Sen. Jon Bramnick is the ‘Funniest Lawyer in New Jersey’

The NY Post writes

Attorney Jon Bramnick, called “Funniest Lawyer in New Jersey.” He wins comedy contests, volunteers as a comedic auctioneer, wrote the humor book “Why People Don’t Like You,” plus he’s also a Jersey politician which is probably a joke by itself.

Married, grown children, state senator, lives in Westfield.

JB: “I went to Syracuse University undergrad and Hofstra Law for my law degree. I learned later can’t be a wise guy in court. Judges don’t like it. I’ve made mistakes. Thinking I was a wise guy, one jury banged my client badly. Didn’t go well so I never tried that again.

“Writing a joke can take six hours and it lasts only one minute. I specialize in personal injury cases. Practicing law is more fruitful. Preparing for trial’s easier than working an Atlantic City casino. On trial, miss a word you can back up a little. Lose an audience and you can’t bring them back.

“Joking, I say I’m also a New Jersey politician and state senator, so you can trust everything I tell you. People throw my own lines at me, like in town hall, one lady asked what I’m doing about high taxes and I said, ‘I’ll move.’

“Works with everyone but my wife. Like one day I asked if she wanted to see me at a comedy club and Patricia said, ‘Naaah. Rather stay home and watch ‘Gunsmoke.’?”
