Why quote API doesn't load

Hello Fellows

Could anybody tell me why my code doesn’t show anything in the console when trying to use this API

<button id="nextQuote">press</button>

JavaScript code

$("#nextQuote").on("click",function getData(quote,author){
$.getJSON("http://api.forismatic.com/api/1.0/?method=getQuote&lang=en&format=jsonp&jsonp=?", function(json) {
   quote = json.quoteText; 
   author = json.quoteAuthor; 


would appreciate your support

I hope that helps!
