Faizon Love grew up as a military brat; raised in San Diego and Newark, NJ. He got his start as a stand-up comedian and made his acting debut Off-Broadway both at the age of nineteen. He’s appeared on Def Comedy Jam, Shaq’s All Star Comedy Jam and Martin Lawrence’s 1’st Amendment Comedy.
In his motion picture debut Bebe’s Kids, Faizon provided a dead on vocal impression of legendary comedian Robin Harris, who died before production began on this animated cult classic. That later led to a role in The Meteor Man starring Robert Townsend who then cast Love in a co-starring role on his sitcom The Parent ‘Hood.
