David Epley is a real Renaissance man.
He worked the Renaissance fair circuit for 20 years with a trio called Theatre in the Ground before he combined his love for science, performing and comedy into his new traveling persona: Doktor Kaboom!.
“Science is for everybody,” Epley said. “Not just the person in the lab coat or the kid who wins the science fair.”
Epley as Doktor Kaboom! brings the show “It’s Just Rocket Science” to Chautauqua at 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. today in Smith Wilkes Hall as part of the Family Entertainment Series. It’s Epley’s third time at Chautauqua as Doktor Kaboom!, but his first time with the show.
