Jersey's own Joe Piscopo shared his commitment to the great Garden State this morning amid a discussion of improving New Jersey.

"I look at the roads, I look at the rules, the regulations, the laws. I look at my property taxes going up every year. I look at the inheritance tax for cryin' out loud, and I ain't going anywhere," Piscopo said. According to him, New Jersey's downsides aren't enough to keep him out.

We agreed that the rest of the world loves to bust on our state, but someone's gotta stick it out and fight the good fight.

Of course, no talk with Piscopo would be complete without laughter. Check out the clip above to hear him tell a very funny story that epitomizes what it's like to drive on the Jersey Turnpike.

Are you with us in stickin' it out for Jersey- despite potholes, taxes and more? Let me know below!
