Joe Piscopo says he’s no star and if he can convince a New Jersey appeals court he’s just another Joe, it would save him thousands of dollars in a divorce ruling. A lawyer for Piscopo, 37, argued in Bergen County Superior Court last week that the comedian-actor of “Saturday Night Live” and beer commercial fame does not have celebrity good will--the ability to generate future earnings based on celebrity status. The arguments were part of an appeal Piscopo filed on an Aug. 23 divorce ruling by Superior Court Judge Isabel R. Stark that his celebrity good will is a “quantifiable asset.” Piscopo’s lawyer, Francis W. Donahue, said that if Piscopo has celebrity good will, it’s worth about $46,000 to his former wife, Nancy.
