David Epley grew up expecting to be a research physicist. Then a biomedical engineer. Then a mathematician, an astrophysicist, a chemical engineer and a marine biologist. So, of course, he became an actor. Enter — Doktor Kaboom! Doktor Kaboom is an over the top German physicist with a passion for science that knows no bounds. Sporting chrome goggles, an orange lab coat, motorcycle boots, and wicked cool hair, Doktor Kaboom travels the world, thrilling adults and children alike with an explosive comedic style that is guaranteed to please every crowd. His improvisational skill promises no two shows will ever be the same, and his character-driven comedy will entertain audiences of every age. Nothing says science like KABOOM!
