Here’s how a standup comic handled being on stage during the 7.1 earthquake

There is no ideal place to be during a huge earthquake – okay, maybe a pillow factory storage room? – but one the worst spots I can think of is to be on stage trying to entertain a bunch of people and make them laugh. And that’s just what happened to comedian Atsuko Okatsuka on July 5 when a 7.1 earthquake hit Ridgecrest.

Okatsuka was performing at The Ice House in Pasadena during the shaker and, yeah, she handled the whole situation like a champ.
