Article Title: Funny Man Earthquake to Appear at Zanies June 5-8
Article: Washington D.C.'s own comedian Earthquake will be appearing at Zanies June 5-8. His unique audience comedic style has captured the attention of popular media icons like Howard Stern and Bill Maher. He's maintained his moniker as the 'comedian's favorite comedian.'
  Born Nathaniel Stroman, Earthquake became a formidable talent of the mid-90's explosion of BET's ComicView and HBO's Def Comedy Jam. Quake soon set up shop in New Aged Black Hollywood known as Atlanta and held down the host spot as proprietor of Uptown Comedy Corner. This infamous stage propelled him to national exposure while performing to sold-out rooms and opening the door to more mainstream media. Soon there would be room for Quake on television as he’d go on to secure a spot in 2002 on Comedy Central's Premium Blend, as well as a guest appearance on Mad TV.
  In 2003 his audience would see him set precedence as the first comic to command a standing ovation on the critically acclaimed, HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher. He also shot Comedy Central Presents: EARTHQUAKE! in this same year and in February 2005 he starred in Jamie Foxx's Comedy Central special Laffapalooza! hailing Earthquake as an all-time favorite.
  Earthquake later went on to join HBO and sign on to develop and shoot the coveted half hour comedy series special One Night Stand in August. He'd later go on to make two memorable appearances on Comedy Central's Weekend at D.L.'s adding to a string of indelible appearances on the Viacom network.
  In 2006, he starred opposite Wanda Sykes his major motion picture debut appearance in Kevin Smith's cult classic sequel Clerk's II. He would continue on the big screen lending his voice to the much beloved animated film, Barnyard as Root the Rooster. During this same year, he had a recurring role as Uncle Mike on the CW network's Everybody Hates Chris while also serving as supporting cast in Ice Cube's The Longshots. His mounting credits also included an unforgettable appearance on 2003's Walter Latham Presents and a 2007 all-star appearance on HBO's Def Comedy Jam.
  Earthquake's appearance on the wildly received Shaquille O'Neal's Comedy All-Star Comedy Jam currently rivals his concert DVD release From the Outhouse to the White House as his best performances to date (available on as well as national retail outlets). Recently, Quake has teamed up with NASCAR icon Tony Stewart and Armor All for a television project currently available online. Earthquake continues to be a hot commodity on the comedy scene and is enjoying his greatest years. His forthcoming HBO special will be taped in the fall.
