Faizon Love Net Worth $8 Million

Faizon Love spent his childhood divided between New Jersey and California, as his father served in the US Navy, so the family moved frequently. He began performing as a stand-up comedian at the age of 15. Before he was 20 years old, Faizon`s career had already taken-off, as he became a part of the local bars as a stand-up comedian.

He also launched his acting career, appearing in several off-Broadway productions. After initial success, he earned his first screen appearance in the film “Friday” (1995), and before that lent his voice to characters from the film “Bébé’s Kids” (1992), and the TV series “The Cartoon Cartoon Show” (1995). In the year he made his debut appearance, Faizon also earned his first notable role, as Wendell Wilcox in the TV series “Parent Hood” (1995-1998), which certainly increased his net worth by a large margin, but also boosted his popularity. Before the 2000s begun, Faizon featured in such films and TV series as “A Thin Line Between Love and Hate” (1996) with Martin Lawrence and Regina King in lead roles, “Don’t Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood” (1996), and “The Players Club” (1998), among others.

With the beginning of the 2000s, his career reached a whole new level, securing roles in such films and TV series as “The Replacements” (2000) alongside Keanu Reeves and Gene Hackman, “Elf” (2003) with Will Ferrell and Bob Newhart, “Idlewild” (2006), “Made” (2001), and “Couples Retreat” (2009).

To speak further of his accomplishments in the entertainment industry as an actor, Faizon appeared in the films “White T” (2013), “November Rule” (2015), “Brotherly Love” (2015), among others. Most recently he has been selected for roles in the films “Social Redemption”, “Friendship Day”, and “Ripped”, all of which are scheduled for 2016 release, and will certainly add to the overall size of his net worth.

Faizon also tried himself as a director, and so far has created a comedy documentary “Tao Of The Golden Mask” (2007), for which he earned Action on Film Award for Best Comedy. When it comes to his personal life, little is known about Faizon Love in the media, except the fact that he dated Kali Hawk in 2009; according to sources, he is currently single. He spends his free time posting on his official Twitter account.
