Even though he doesn’t resemble anyone in Widespread Panic, stand-up comic Earthquake has something in common with most jam bands: He never plays the same set twice. “I’m like [basketball star] Allen Iverson,” he says. “Just give me the ball, and I shoot. I can’t imagine talking about the same thing, the same way, every damned day.” Recently, the Washington, D.C., native (who was born Nathaniel Stroman) has been riffing on the battle of the sexes. “Men can’t afford the standards of American women,” he says. “Back in the day, all you needed was a good car and a house, and she was satisfied. Now, if you want to leave her, you’ve got to compensate for not being the man she thinks you should be. What kind of shit is that? I’ve got to pay you for not being this motherfucker?”
