NEW YORK, July 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — SiriusXM today announced that comedian Nathaniel “Earthquake” Stroman will host a new program on Kevin Hart and Lionsgate’s exclusive channel, Laugh Out Loud Radio. The comedic talk show will premiere on channel 96 starting July 16 and air weekdays from 1:00 – 3:00pm PT / 4:00 – 6:00pm ET.
Comedian Earthquake, known by his fans as “Quake,” is beloved in the stand-up comedy arena. Known for years as “The Comedian’s Favorite Comedian,” his numerous television appearances on HBO, Comedy Central, BET, Showtime, and the late-night talk show circuit have won him a loyal fan base. Chosen by Whoopi Goldberg for a stand-up comedy segment of The View, Earthquake has secured a place in the heart of comedy lovers across race, culture, or social status. His comedic brand, unique delivery, and bankable common-sense rhetoric is now going to be unleashed on SiriusXM with a daily radio show.
Broadcast live from Los Angeles, Quake’s House will feature the comedian at his most authentic, and will also showcase regular friends of the show and recurring segments. In addition, Earthquake will talk with celebrity guests and some of the funniest emerging comics. From hilarious “Mancave” revelations to his on-air Fantasy Football updates to All Women Wednesdays, Quake’s signature humor will be on full display.
“His name is Earthquake for a reason,” said Jack Vaughn, SiriusXM’s Senior Vice President of Comedy Programming. “He’ll hold nothing back on his new SiriusXM show, talking directly with subscribers from his self-described ‘mancave,’ as he continues to entertain millions with his refreshing take on life.”
“This is a perfect move for me,” said Earthquake. “The show will have awesome energy and will set the bar high for comedy. I’ve always had a great time at SiriusXM Radio and I’m glad to be back. I can’t wait to see the magic we make when this show takes on a life of its own.”
