Doktor Kaboom is the creation of actor/comedian David Epley.
David 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 David has written, directed, and performed original comedy shows throughout the US, and around the world. Outdoor festivals and street performance were his primary venues of choice, with an occasional stage show thrown in for good measure. In 2006 David decided to bring science, his first passion, back into his life. Blending science and theatre has been a dream come true, opened multiple doors, and led to the most fulfilling work of his life.
Teaching, inspiring, and empowering the minds of our youth, and reminding their parents to be an active part of the equation. How could someone’s work be any more rewarding?
David is a veteran of the US Army, and a former Firefighter and EMT. He calls Seattle home, where he lives and loves with his wife and their two wonderful daughters.
