One New Year's Eve (he doesn't remember exactly what year), comedian Earthquake
was scheduled to take the stage at precisely 11 p.m. at a St. Louis club (he doesn't remember exactly which one). He does, however, remember that inclement weather kept his plane from landing on schedule, and he subsequently didn't arrive at the venue until midnight. "It was me and this group called Silk on the bill," Earthquake recalls. "I was so late, but me and the crowd just acted at one o'clock like it was twelve o'clock, and we did the countdown all over again."
Come hell or high water, this time around the comedian (né Nathaniel Stroman) will be on time for his headlining gig at the Improv Paradise Live.
