Comedian, actor and voice-artist Earthquake earned a strong fan-base in stand-up comedy via programming platforms fueled by BET, HBO, Comedy Central, Showtime and more. He entered America's households on the classic run of BET's "Comic View" and HBO's "Def Comedy Jam," wowing audiences with performances for HBO's coveted 30-minute comedy special series, "One Night Stand." A stand-up circuit favorite, Earthquake filmed a string of comedy specials, including "About Got Damm Time," "Walter Latham Presents," "From the Outhouse to the Whitehouse" and more recently "These Ain't Jokes" which premiered on the Showtime Network. Quake has also been a fixture of the Shaq's All Star Comedy Jam DVD Collections and various other comedy content collector's DVD's as well.
Comedian Earthquake has enjoyed a string of cameo appearances on prime time television as well. He is mostly known as the beloved "Uncle Mike" from the hit sitcom "Everybody Hates Chris." Recently, he made a guest appearance on Bounce Network's "In the Cut" and the Wanda Sykes produced "Face Value" airing on the BET Network. He has also blessed the talk show circuit with appearances on ABC's "The View," Fox Television's "The Real," TBS's "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" and many more. However, his most memorable appearances were on Howard Stern and HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher."
Quake's film credits include the animated favorite "Barnyard," "Something Like a Business" with Kevin Hart, "Getting Played" with Vivica Fox, Ice Cube's "The Longshots" and the Kevin Smith cult classic "Clerks II." And he has provided inimitable voice work for Nike and Beats by Dre respectively.
