Earthquake background and history
For nine years Earthquake served in in the U.S. Air Force and was ultimately granted the rank of Sergeant. It was at the Eglin Air Force Base in Florida, that he entertained troops and locals at Open Mic Night at Top's and Blue's -the local bar. In 1990 Earthquake began performing in lesser known clubs but in 1993 he became the co-owner of the Uptown Comedy Corner in Atlanta. He used the venue to gain experience as a stand-up comedian and became very popular with the crowd.
His own club, Earthquake's Comedy Corner II opened soon thereafter in Dallas and Atlanta. Earthquake got a big break when he was invited to form part of the Russell Simmons Def Comedy Jam Tour. In 2005 he starred in the DVD "About Got Damm Time" and in the Laffapalooza Comedy Central Special hosted by Jamie Foxx.
It was on the Howard Stern show that Earthquake told listeners that during his stint in the U.S. Air Force, while loading an aircraft, he dropped a live nuclear missile. Much panic ensued and the incident was given "Broken Arrow" status which alerts the US president and the military. According to Earthquake he had been careless because he was eager to attend a 2-Live Crew concert. Just one example how this hilarious performer weaves real-life experiences into comedic fare!
Earthquake's stand up comedy show includes his unique brand of observational comedy, improvisational theatre, and dark comedy. He has a reputation for being the "comedian's favourite comedian" and has been heavily endorsed by firm favourites Howard Stern and Bill Maher. Earthquake followed his 2008 performance on TBS Laffapalooza, and Just for Laughs stand-up performance in 2009 as well as his comedic contributions on Roast and Toast and Comedy All-Star Comedy Jam, with his more current stand-up comedy events.
