Biography

Considerably large both in actual physical stature and in presence, African-American actor-comedian Faizon Love moved to New York City from his Newark, New Jersey upon graduating from high school. While still a student, Love was encouraged by an English teacher who invited the young man to perform before the class at the end of the day if his studies were in order. This fostering of his creativity led to bigger and better things for the performer, who landed a role in the Off-Broadway play "Bitter Heart Midtown" at the Harlem National Black Theatre within his first year in NYC. A modernized take on Charles Dickens' "Great Expectations," the play was a good start for the actor, who had an early TV appearance in an episode of the CBS series "WIOU" in 1990. In 1992, Love was called in to replace Robin Harris when the comedian died suddenly, providing a voice for the animated feature "Bebe's Kids."
