Special Event: Earthquake

The life and times of Comedian Earthquake reads like an unlikely happenstance that has fallen into divine rightness. He didn't have an epiphany about his career, but what everyone is missing, is that somehow someway he is standing right where he needs to be.

Washington 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 my show is unique,” Earthquake says. “I don't have a plan, I just step on stage and it goes from there.” He has performed 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. He 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.

His break out performance film “About Got Damm Time,” became an instant popular collectible and his “From the Outhouse to the Penthouse” shocked the masses as he proudly captivated audiences live the weekend of the first inauguration of President Barack Obama. His subsequent film appearances in Getting Played with Vivica Fox, Barnyard and animated classic, Clerks II with Wanda Sykes and Ice Cube's The Longshot's gave Quake fans a taste of a promising future. The remainder of his resume reads like a who's who of stand-up comedy while he traveled the mainstream circuit blessing the forums of HBO's Bill Maher (which made him the first comedian to receive a standing ovation on that show) Howard Stern (with Stern calling him his new favorite comedian), and Chelsea Lately to name a few. His most interesting looks were caught on trendy talk shows like Weekend At D.L.'s and Baisden After Dark, but when the nation caught him gliding on the stage at George Lopez, it was as if time had stood still.

Refreshingly charming with a pristine presentation Quake looks as if he hadn't been in the game for 20 years. His fans were excited to receive him as the unforgettable Uncle Mike in Chris Rock's beloved Everybody Hates Chris.

Presently, Earthquake is enjoying his run in the circuit as he has been prominently placed as the headliner for the Royal Comedy Tour. A popular property in stand-up his schedule is full and he revels in his accomplishments while traveling the world. “These ain't jokes!” he bellows from stage to stage as he reveals truths about himself and others that in any other circumstance may not be a laughing matter. “The essence of comedy is in exposing uncomfortable truths,” he says in an interview. “Finding a way for the public to accept these truths is the art of the craft.”

Presently Comedian Earthquake is basking in the love he received from comedic icon Whoopi Goldberg as one of her favorite comedians. In April of 2013, he appeared on ABC's The View in a special segment of stand-up comedians showcased by the cast of The View as their personal favorites. Whoopi Goldberg chose Earthquake and in front of all of America she relished in his “fearlessness.” Needless to say, he shined to rave reviews. He then made an appearance on the popular late night program TBS's Conan O'Brien and taped an eagerly anticipated forthcoming episode of BET's hit sitcom “The Game.”
