In this brand new holiday show The Science of Santa, Doktor Kaboom, works from the assumption that science and magic are the same thing, and declares Mr. Claus the world's greatest scientist! Following this theory, the good Doktor attempts to recreate all of Santa's wonders.
He uses basic physics to demonstrate how he believes Santa gets down the chimneys of the world. He explores Bernoulli's Principle, WiFi signals, and what snow is. Doktor Kaboom! even sings his brand new holiday song, "Do You Recall".
The Science of Santa was conceived in New York City in January of 2012 following a conversation between David Epley (Doktor Kaboom) and Christy Reeves, vice chair of the Board of Directors of the Manship Theatre at the Shaw Center for the Arts.
David Epley 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 20 years David has made his living writing, performing, and directing original interactive comedy across the US and Canada. He now brings his passions together with an explosive style that refuses to allow his audiences time to catch a breath.
