Someone forgot to make an important phone call

See this flyer? It advertises a D.L. Hughley appearance at Zanzibar this past weekend. Hughley was indeed in town, performing at the Equestrian Center in Upper Marlboro. He says he was never booked for Zanzibar and asked them to stop using his name and likeness to promote the club. They didn’t. So now his agent is getting phone calls asking why Hughley flaked, and predictably, he’s suing the owners of Zanzibar for rather a lot of money, alleging all kinds of things, including misappropriation of name and likeness.

Hey guys? This is generally why the concept of the “signed contract” was invented.
