Earthquake

D.C.’s own Nathaniel Stroman turned Earthquake has a knack for gut instinct. It’s how he came to have thousands of adoring fans and has graced every media opportunity afforded a stand- up comedian in this day and age. ‘The way I approach y show is unique’, Earthquake says.’ I don’t have a plan, I just step on stage and it goes from there’. And there it goes, is right. From the late 1990’s to the turn of the millennium he had the nation laughing to tears in repeat mode saying, ‘I wanna put my air in my mama’s name’. He then changed with the times and said ‘You still like cheese in your eggs O.J.??’ Nevertheless, he got the clue that the world was listening and while that never determined his direction, it was rewarding to know he had an impact. That impact lead him to iconic performances on BET’s Comic View making his performance cultural staple of urban media lifestyle. He then blessed the stages at HBO’s Def Comedy Jam, shot a couple of 30-minute specials on Comedy Central and BET respectively and gave a critical acclaimed performance on his solo effort One Night Stand for HBO. He shook up audiences at the Walter Latham Presents taping making it what some say was his best performance to date and consistently obliged the audiences in Jamie Foxx’s Laffapalooza and 2009’s Shaq’s Comedy All-stars. He blessed the TBS Comedy Fest in Rat Pack attire and was subsequently labeled by critics as the possible (yet respectful and honorable) predecessor to the late great Bernie Mac. A unique voice, uncommon appeal and with a sense and sensibility that will make the brilliant feel dumb, Quake (as he is known by fans) rose above the laws of the land and continued to shake up audiences all over the world.
