Using comedy as a tool for learning, the hilarious Doktor Kaboom teaches kids about the fundamentals of science. Sporting chrome goggles, an orange lab coat, and motorcycle boots, “Doktor Kaboom” is an over the top German physicist with a passion for science that knows no bounds. The character is the creation of actor-comedian David Epley, who is also a U.S. Army veteran and a former firefighter and EMT.

Epley grew up expecting to be a research physicist. Then a biomedical engineer. Then a mathematician, an astrophysicist, a chemical engineer, a marine biologist. So, of course, he became an actor. For almost 30 years he has written, directed, and performed original comedy shows at outdoor festivals, street performances, and on stage. In 2006, he decided to bring science, his original passion, back into his life. Blending science and theater has been a dream come true, he says, opening multiple doors, and leading to the most fulfilling work of his career.
