***HOSTED BY BLACK KASPER ***

 

Kasper Nelson: Shallbowie "Kasper" Nelson always dreamed of being a comedian as a family and class entertainer he grew up listening to Richard Pryor albums and watching Flip Wilson on television. Kasper would mix both comic styles and use them to perform routines for family, friends and schoolmates. By the tender age of fourteen Kasper had developed his own 20 min routine and was a working professional comic in his hometown of Knoxville, Tenn. By age sixteen Kasper armed with permission slip from his mother was a regular on open-mic nights at the famous Funny Bone comedy club in Knoxville Tenn. Before leaving home he co-headlined concerts, hosted practically every local talent event as well as opening for the late greats Roger Troutman & Zapp. After completing high school Kasper was already a veteran at getting laughs. In search of more opportunities he left home and moved to Atlanta, GA.

After seven years of open-mic nights and countless day jobs Kasper earned the respect of comedian Earthquake who booked Kasper at both of his Uptown Comedy Corner clubs in Atlanta, GA. Earthquake soon started booking Kasper as his opening act. While on tour Kasper caught the attention of King of Comedy D.L. Hugely who also booked him as an opening act. Kasper also opened for Chris Tucker, Paul Mooney, Cedric "The Entertainer", Don "DC" Curry, Jonathan Witherspoon, Monique, Sommore, Earthquake just to name a few. In 1997 Kasper won the Canadian Mist Comedy Competition, as well as advancing to the semi-finals at the Oakland Bay Area Comedy Competition to take second place to none other than Nick Cannon. This opened the door for many executives to view Kasper’s comedic styles they were still laughing when they offered Kasper his first opportunity to perform before a national audience and bring his lifelong dream of being a comic on TV into a reality.

Kasper's unforgettable appearance and storytelling brand of jokes made him an instant favorite with fans all over America. Kasper's performance earned him a 30 minute Grand Stand on BET's Comicview. Kasper has appeared every season since 1997 and is now one of the most recognizable comics in the country “people notice me everywhere I go.” This is most evident when Kasper headlines to sometimes record breaking sold-out attendances he is one of the strongest draws on the comedy circuit today. Kasper has realized his childhood dreams and is now taking on even greater ones. He has turned his focus to writing, producing and directing.

Kasper has produced and starred in a public access show entitled Kasper's Kouch which is a Jay Leno type variety show in which Kasper hosts, acts in skits and interview guests with his puppet sidekick Kissy Love snuggles. The second show Kasper produced, wrote and acted in was entitled Kasper's Raw Stand-Up it is just what it sounds like it is a show that features a variety of comedians, actors and musicians from up and coming to superstars. Kasper gave very candid interviews to his guest he writes, co-produce and co-direct on both shows. There are only great things ahead for this new and refreshing comic. Kasper will continue to bring the joy of laughter to millions of people from all walks of life.
Earthquake:
The life and times of Comedian Earthquake reads like an unlikely happenstance that has fallen into divine
rightness. Everyone knows the story, he didn’t have an epiphany about his career, but what everyone is missing, is that somehow someway he is standing right where he needs to be.
 
Washington D.C.’s own Nathaniel Stroman turned Earthquake has a knack for gut instinct. It’s how he came to have thousands of adoring fans and has graced every media opportunity afforded a stand- up comedian in this day and age. ‘The way I approach my show is unique’, Earthquake says.’ I don’t have a plan, I just step on stage and it goes from there’. And there it goes, is right. From the late 1990’s to the turn of the millennium he had the nation laughing to tears in repeat mode saying, ‘I wanna put my air in my mama’s name’. He then changed with the times and said ‘You still like cheese in your eggs O.J.??’ Nevertheless, he got the clue that the world was listening and while that never determined his direction, it was rewarding to know he had an impact. That impact lead him to iconic performances on BET’sComic View making his performance cultural staple of urban media lifestyle. He then blessed the stages at HBO’s Def Comedy Jam, shot a couple of 30-minute specials on Comedy Central and BET respectively and gave a critical acclaimed performance on his solo effort One Night Stand for HBO. He shook up audiences at the Walter Latham Presents taping making it what some say was his best performance to date and consistently obliged the audiences in Jamie Foxx’s Laffapalooza and 2009’s Shaq’s Comedy All-stars. He blessed the TBS Comedy Fest in Rat Pack attire and was subsequently labeled by critics as the possible (yet respectful and honorable) predecessor to the late great Bernie Mac. A unique voice, uncommon appeal and with a sense and sensibility that will make the brilliant feel dumb, Quake (as he is known by fans) rose above the laws of the land and continued to shake up audiences all over the world.
 
His break out performance film ‘About Got Damm Time’, became an instant popular collectible and his ‘From the Outhouse to the Penthouse’ shocked the masses as he proudly captivated audiences live the weekend of the first inauguration of President Barack Obama. His subsequent film appearances in Getting Played with Vivica Fox, Barnyard and animated classic, Clerks II with Wanda Sykes and Ice Cube’s The Longshot’s gave Quake fans a taste of a promising future. The remainder of his resume reads like a who’s who of stand-up comedy while he traveled the mainstream circuit blessing the forums of HBO’s Bill Maher(which made him the first comedian to receive a standing ovation on that show) Howard Stern (with Stern calling him his new favorite comedian), and Chelsea Lately to name a few. His most interesting looks were caught on trendy talk shows like Weekend At D.L.’s and Baisden After Dark, but when the nation caught him gliding on the stage at George Lopez, it was as if time had stood still.
 
Refreshingly charming with a pristine presentation Quake looks amazing as if he hadn’t been in the game for 20 years. His fans were excited to receive him as the unforgettable Uncle Mike in Chris Rock’s beloved Everybody Hates Chris a recurring role he had the world on board with his infectious…’Big man!’. If Quake has learned nothing else about himself he has learned that what he says impacts language.
 
Presently, Earthquake is enjoying his run in the circuit as he has been prominently placed as the headliner for the Royal Comedy Tour. A popular property in stand-up his schedule is full and he revels in his accomplishments while traveling the world. ‘These ain’t jokes!’ he bellows from stage to stage as he reveals truths about himself and others that in any other circumstance may not be a laughing matter. ‘The essence of comedy is in exposing uncomfortable truths,’ he says in an interview. ‘Finding a way for the public to accept these truths is the art of the craft.’
 
Earthquake is also basking in the love he received from comedic icon Whoopi Goldberg as one of her favorite comedians. In April of 2013, he appeared on ABC’s The View in a special segment of stand-up comedians showcased by the cast of The View as their personal favorites. Whoopi Goldberg chose Earthquake and in front of all of America she relished in his ‘fearlessness’. Needless to say, he shined to rave reviews. He then made an appearance on the popular late night program TBS’s Conan O’Brien and taped an eagerly anticipated forthcoming episode of BET’s hit sitcom ‘The Game’. It doesn’t look like his ‘natural’ is a disaster after all.
