Faizon Love beating the crap out of a valet, and getting arrested in Ohio is really good for biz … based on ticket sales for his next stand-up show.
As we reported, Faizon was arrested Tuesday after the brutal attack — captured on surveillance video. The arrest came 8 days before his headlining gig at Funny Bone Comedy Club in Columbus. Perfect timing.
Management at the club says they sold nearly 100 tickets on Wednesday alone … the day after the comedian's arrest. By comparison, they only sold 24 tickets the day before. The spike puts his 2 scheduled shows on March 15 at just over 80% capacity. Also, management says no one's asked for a refund yet.
As they say, no such thing as bad publicity. Although Faizon's lawyer might beg to differ.
