Doktor Kaboom and the Wheel of Science

Sunday, February 10, 2019 at 2pm

Tickets: $25


Irvine Barclay Theatre - 4242 Campus Drive, Irvine CA | 949.854.4646

Doktor Kaboom is having trouble picking his favorite science demonstrations, so he’s bringing them all! Unfortunately, there are way too many to do them all in one show. The solution: the Wheel of Science!

Doktor Kaboom has built a great big spinning wheel and labeled it with everything from optical illusions to chemical reactions to a homemade hovercraft, and more! Wherever the wheel stops, that’s what’s next!

Recommended for ages 8-12.

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, he became an actor.

For over 30 years, David has written, directed and performed original comedy shows throughout the United States 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 theater has been a dream come true: it has opened multiple doors, and has 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 U.S. Army, and a former firefighter and EMT. He calls Seattle home, where he lives and loves with his wife and their two wonderful daughters.
