Thats the verdict from openly gay, Miami-based judge, David Young, whos ready to bring his humor, fairness, and occasional song from the bench to his own daily court show, Judge David Young.
But bursting into show tunes during trials isnt all fun and games, in fact, the Broadway-loving TV judge says singing helps him get his point across to courtroom culprits.
Says Young: Id rather sing in the courtroom than yell, because if I make the lesson into a show tune, both the guilty party and the viewer will remember it. If Im dealing with a gambling case Ill burst into a Guys and Dolls song like, Luck Be A Lady Tonight. Its fun and effective!
And show tunes arent the only thing that separate Young from other TV judges like Judge Judy Sheindlin and Judge Joe Brown.
He explains, Ive got my own style, my own attitude, my own rules, and I believe that with the right guidance, people can change. You can be fair without being condescending, and Im sorry Judge Judy, but I would NEVER wear a doily on my robe. If I wear anything on my robe itll be Prada or Gucci!
Judge David Young premieres today (Sept. 10), check your local listings for show times.
