Tommy Davidson’s exceptional range – from stand-up comedy and acting to versatile music accomplishments – have earned him a reputation as an extraordinary performer. Best known as one of the stars of the hit television show In Living Color, his visibility has allowed him to become a household name known for his innovative talent.

Davidson started his career as a standup comedian in Washington DC, earning an ardent following with relentless work in the leading comedy clubs. As one of the cutting-edge, young stand-ups, he was spotted by major concert promoters who booked him as the opening act for A-list tours including Patti LaBelle, Kenny G and Luther Vandross. It wasn’t long before he came to Hollywood and was headlining at a number of clubs, including the Comedy Act Theatre, where he met Robert Townsend. This led to his first national television appearance with a starring role in Partners in Crime and was the conduit to Keenan Ivory Wayans, who proved instrumental in Davidson’s career by offering him an opportunity to audition.

Tommy and Jamie Foxx, Jim Carrey, Damon Wayans and David Alan Grier — the uniquely talented cast of the most adventurous primetime variety show on television, In Living Color (1990), made TV history. The iconic sketch show was recently honored with the ‘Groundbreaking Award” by TV Land in a star-studded salute guided by Whoopi Goldberg and this year celebrates its 25th anniversary.
Tommy’s film debut started opposite Halle Berry in Strictly Business. A range of feature film roles from Spike Lee’s Bamboozled, where he received acclaim and praise for his turn as “Womack/Sleep ‘N Eats,” to Juwanna Mann (Morgan Creek Productions’) and the pivotal cameo in Jim Carrey’s Ace Ventura II: When Nature Calls, followed. He starred in 2011’s landmark, award-winning documentary, I Am Comic, opposite Tim Allen, Lewis Black, Sarah Silverman, Carlos Mencia, Jeff Foxworthy and Kathy Griffin.

Davidson’s hilarious impressions of Sammy Davis Jr., Michael Jackson and other icons have become infamous. His visibility on In Living Color led to three Showtime specials: On Strength of New York, Illin’ in Philly and Takin’ it to DC. Tommy is the host and star of Showtime’s 2013 Chocolate Sundaes special (eOne) which garnered rave reviews upon premiere and remains one of eOne Film’s best sellers.

In 2015, he was cast in a starring role in Frat Pack, an unapologetic comedy shooting in Toronto. The indie feature centers on a shy late 20s British bachelor who is dragged on a wild road trip to a fraternity party as his mother marries into a larger than life American family. Think “Road Trip” meets “Bridesmaids” meets “Project X” with a bit of “American Pie” thrown in.

His elasticity as a performer who delivers on the small screen ranges from his guest starring role in season 4 of the hot BET show, Real Husbands of Hollywood, opposite Kevin Hart and Nick Cannon and as the star of Will Smith’s animated series, Youngin’s and Disney’s animated series, The Proud Family
Tommy stars opposite Michael Jai White in the critically-lauded spoof comedy, Black Dynamite (Sony Pictures) as the character ‘Cream Corn.’ The cult hit was adapted as an animated series for the Cartoon Network, becoming a breakout hit. It continues to garner the highest ratings the Turner imprint has ever experienced setting the precedent for all Adult Swim series.

Earthquake @ The Comedy Zone

If the key to success in Hollywood is longevity and all the Hollywood players get their ever so anticipated 15 minutes of fame, then Comedian Earthquake has to have somehow lucked up on an hour. Not only does he have the staying power, his evolution seems to make him funnier, more relevant, and in higher demand with every Twitter entry, Facebook status and stand-up performance he makes. He’s as hot as he’s always been and his fans are simmering and waiting for him to blow. “When this guy finally gets his break, I don’t want to be around to see it!” exclaims Comedian DL Hughley when referencing Comedian Earthquake’s highly anticipated career bang. One wonders if the bang is even necessary. His presence on the comedy circuit has propelled him to be one of the most beloved and adored comedians of all time… many of whom liken him to the gone too soon and never forgotten, Robin Harris.

‘Quake’s’ story is unique however. The former enlisted sergeant for the U.S. Air Force and father of three, never had a plan prior to this. In fact, this may not have even been a plan in the first place. A chance performance at a local talent show on base tipped the hat on what would become one of the most successful runs in stand-up comedy in past decades. ‘I had no epiphany of one day following in [Richard] Pryor’s or anyone else’s footsteps. I just found my comfort zone at being me, and this is the result,’ explained Earthquake. And what a result it has been. After becoming a formidable talent of the mid-90’s explosion of televised urban comedy programming in the form of BET’s ComicView and HBO’s Def Comedy Jam, Quake 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 launched his as well as other’s national star status playing sold out rooms and making the most of the would-be historical moment of urban comedy’s peak in mainstream media.

Washington D.C’s Comedian Earthquake born Nathaniel Stroman began to awaken a diverse audience aside from his coveted comedy circuit audiences with a string of unforgettable media appearances and televised performances. Quake would 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. Quake would join HBO and sign on to develop and shoot the coveted half hour comedy series special One Night Stand in August 2005 for which he would receive rave reviews. He’d seemingly be in a love affair with Comedy Central as he would make two memorable appearances on Comedy Central’s Weekend at D.L.’s which would instantly enhance Quake’s visibility on the late night talk show circuit.

With the increased popularity of television programming going to DVD, Quake’s fans began an on again love affair with him. His past performances on BET’s Comic View and HBO’s Def Comedy Jam allowed his fans to connect with his styling, timing and unique delivery making him one of the most quotable comedians of all time. Quake’s audience’s finally got their comic thirsts quenched with Quake’s 2005 DVD release, About Got Damm Time an aptly titled performance film marking the crowning moment in which Earthquake would solely take the stage as an ode to his loyal fans.

From 2006 to present, Earthquake’s television and media presence would grow more significant and spill onto the big screen. He would set a-blaze in 2006 with the first of two unforgettable visits with Howard Stern on Howard TV all while preparing for his major motion picture appearance in Kevin Smith’s cult classic sequel Clerks II in which he would star opposite Wanda Sykes. 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 would seize the recurring role of Uncle Mike on the CW network’s Everybody Hates Chris. He would go forth blazing the television talk show craze yet again with appearances on Michael Baisden After Dark, Comics Unleashed an additional Howard Stern appearance and in 2008, an appearance on Comedy Central’s über popular nighttime talk show, Chelsea Lately. 2008 also saw Earthquake as supporting cast in Ice Cube’s film The Longshots, a based-on-a-true story, triumphant tale of an eleven-year old girl from Illinois who would become the first female to play in Pop Warner football tournament in its 56-year history.

Earthquake’s mounting credits include an unforgettable appearance on 2003’s Latham Entertainment Presents and a 2007 all-star appearance on HBO’s Def Comedy Jam. In 2005 he surprised audiences in the film, Getting Played with Vivica Fox, and he will also appear in the forthcoming film Something like a Business, directed by Russ Parr soon to be released.

2008 brought Quake additional fanfare with his performance on the inaugural installment of the TBS Comedy Festival’s Laffapalooza and in 2009 he would receive critical acclaim for his Just for Laughs stand-up performance and his appearances on TV One’s Roast and Toast: John Witherspoon and the 17th Annual Trumpet Awards.

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.

In 2010 Quake teamed up with NASCAR icon Tony Stewart and Armor All for a television project currently available online. Earthquake’s unmistakable voice would be used in the ever so popular online series and televised commercials produced by Nike called the MVP Puppets. Quake would make three appearances with the Nike MVP Puppets during the 2009/2010 campaign. He would star as a detective in one, Santa Claus in another and a fire chief.

In 2011 TV One would soon produce an interesting series connecting throwback iconic television, film and musical personalities of days gone by with the here and the now and in a variety series entitled Way Black When. Quake was secured as guest performer for the segment that covered the 90’s which was extremely well received. 2011 would also see Comedian Earthquake’s career impacted by the influx of viral media as his fans begin to further broaden and expand with every click of the mouse. His clips are generated through many of the popular sites that keep his views in the hundreds of thousands. His recent appearance on George Lopez’s late night show being one of the online highlights as his fans were delighted to see him in that vein.

Presently Comedian Earthquake is preparing to shoot his forthcoming special and maintaining his place as ‘the comedian’s favorite comedian’ and now a renowned fan favorite on the comedy circuit nationwide.

Earthquake @ The Comedy Zone

If the key to success in Hollywood is longevity and all the Hollywood players get their ever so anticipated 15 minutes of fame, then Comedian Earthquake has to have somehow lucked up on an hour. Not only does he have the staying power, his evolution seems to make him funnier, more relevant, and in higher demand with every Twitter entry, Facebook status and stand-up performance he makes. He’s as hot as he’s always been and his fans are simmering and waiting for him to blow. “When this guy finally gets his break, I don’t want to be around to see it!” exclaims Comedian DL Hughley when referencing Comedian Earthquake’s highly anticipated career bang. One wonders if the bang is even necessary. His presence on the comedy circuit has propelled him to be one of the most beloved and adored comedians of all time… many of whom liken him to the gone too soon and never forgotten, Robin Harris.

‘Quake’s’ story is unique however. The former enlisted sergeant for the U.S. Air Force and father of three, never had a plan prior to this. In fact, this may not have even been a plan in the first place. A chance performance at a local talent show on base tipped the hat on what would become one of the most successful runs in stand-up comedy in past decades. ‘I had no epiphany of one day following in [Richard] Pryor’s or anyone else’s footsteps. I just found my comfort zone at being me, and this is the result,’ explained Earthquake. And what a result it has been. After becoming a formidable talent of the mid-90’s explosion of televised urban comedy programming in the form of BET’s ComicView and HBO’s Def Comedy Jam, Quake 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 launched his as well as other’s national star status playing sold out rooms and making the most of the would-be historical moment of urban comedy’s peak in mainstream media.

Washington D.C’s Comedian Earthquake born Nathaniel Stroman began to awaken a diverse audience aside from his coveted comedy circuit audiences with a string of unforgettable media appearances and televised performances. Quake would 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. Quake would join HBO and sign on to develop and shoot the coveted half hour comedy series special One Night Stand in August 2005 for which he would receive rave reviews. He’d seemingly be in a love affair with Comedy Central as he would make two memorable appearances on Comedy Central’s Weekend at D.L.’s which would instantly enhance Quake’s visibility on the late night talk show circuit.

With the increased popularity of television programming going to DVD, Quake’s fans began an on again love affair with him. His past performances on BET’s Comic View and HBO’s Def Comedy Jam allowed his fans to connect with his styling, timing and unique delivery making him one of the most quotable comedians of all time. Quake’s audience’s finally got their comic thirsts quenched with Quake’s 2005 DVD release, About Got Damm Time an aptly titled performance film marking the crowning moment in which Earthquake would solely take the stage as an ode to his loyal fans.
