Doktor Kaboom! is an interactive one-man science variety show. Creatively blending theater arts with the wonders of scientific exploration, Doktor Kaboom’s supercharged (and super safe!) science experiments will have audiences erupting with laughter and bubbling with curiosity. With more than 1,000 performances since 2009 Doktor Kaboom! has performed for more than 500,000 people. Join him for a side-splitting journey of increasingly spectacular, and often successful, experiments and demonstrations. Co-commissioned by the Kennedy Center, LIVE WIRE! The Electricity Tour explores the fundamentals of electrical energy and the history of humanity’s adventures into its potential. At the dawn of the 19th century mankind first harnessed the power of electricity, the world changed and the journey still continues. The 1 p.m. performance on Sunday, April 2 will be ASL interpreted.

About Doktor Kaboom!
Doktor Kaboom! is the creation of Actor/Comedian David Epley. David has been fortunate enough to discover two passions in his life. Science, his first, took him to studies at the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics. His second, performing, became his career, and for more than 20 years David has made his living writing, performing and directing original interactive comedy across the U.S. and internationally. Since creating the character of Doktor Kaboom, science education has become David’s life, taking him to theaters and schools all over the world. He has had multiple national television appearances, performances at the John F. Kennedy Center, Washington, DC, and the World Science Festival and recently participated in a Global Online Town Hall hosted by former Vice President Al Gore.
